Packaged Dried Shrimp in Chinatown?

Forgot the place I used to get them; but remember it had about 7 different sizes of shrimp and some even claimed to be unsalted , which is a big plus.

By the way, I grind them up fine, add them to soups, seafood burgers, stews, risottos, etc; really packs a "seafood" punch. I presume others do the same... how else would you use them?
