ISO... source for really fancy salt

earlier salt discussions aside...

does anyone have a website or purveyor that they order fancy sea salts from? I am looking for a few sacks or assortment for a friend of mine. she loves salt, especially fleur de sel.

for a special occassion gift, I am thinking of getting her some really nice salt. willing to spend some bucks, for something interesting.

thanks in advance.

  1. The brand new Whole Foods in Manhattan's Lower Eastside carries many varieties of fancy sea salts. (on Bowery Street)

      1. You could spend a whole lot at They have several types that can be ordered singly or in sets and gift baskets.

        1. The Costco setup looks really nice, but just in case you're looking for something else, Penzey's sells a few salts, too.

          1. There are 86 items listed under "Salt" on the Kalustyan's mail order site. I just stopped by the physical store recently and bought a jar of Grey Sea Salt that I swear is so much more delicious than regular Kosher salt. I was a sceptic, and now I'm converted.
