About

Connecting & Creating Memories with Food

When people ask us how we started our family business, we point to the recession and the collapse of the newspaper journalism industry.

It was early 2010. I was a national correspondent and my newspaper's parent company had filed for bankruptcy. My editors were closing my office and moving my job from the Midwest to Los Angeles. David and I were newly married. We assumed that David would be able to find work fairly easily in California.

We were wrong.

Months passed. We longed to be together. So we started to cook at the same time - three time zones away from one another - and talk on the phone or over Skype. Cooking became our date night, a way we could connect, create memories and share stories of what happened during our day.

Money was tight. But my parents had raised me to believe that you don't have to be rich to eat well. So for holidays and special occasions, we gave our loved ones edible luxuries of our own making. Hand-made infused sugars and salts, for baking cookies or sprinkling over popcorn. BBQ seasonings whipped up to make friends sweat. Homemade spice kits filled with ingredients discovered at organic markets or off-the-beaten-path farms.

A friend suggested we look into opening a shop on Etsy and sell some of our spice mixes. Maybe, she said, it could help offset the cost of our cross-country flights.

It did that. And so much more. The shop helped us reunite back in the Midwest, where we create, mix and package our popcorn seasonings, BBQ spices and cocktail bar supplies.

In September of 2012, David quit his day job at an engineering firm and runs the business full time from our certified and insured commercial kitchen and retail shop in the Old Irving Park neighborhood of Chicago. I'm a journalist by day - and I help David in the evenings and weekends.

The lessons we've learned along the way will carry us throughout our lives. Everyone has a story to tell, so be a good listener. Change is scary - and inevitable. Go ahead and give it a big hug. Ginger helps reduce stress. (But sometimes, all you really need is a good laugh and a glass of great whiskey.)

In 2017, we rebranded our company and changed the name: Dell Cove Spices & More Co.™

And thank you so much to Etsy, for featuring our story in the Etsy Blog! https://blog.etsy.com/en/2015/featured-shop-dell-cove-spice-co

Frequently asked questions
I NEED MY ORDER ASAP! CAN YOU HELP?

If you need your order shipped out the same day - and we have the ability and ingredients to fill your order - we're happy to do so. We charge a flat $30 rush fee per rush order. This fee is in addition to the cost of the products purchased.

Additional fees apply if you would like expedited shipping via USPS Express Mail or Federal Express. Please contact us about setting up a custom listing for this service.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR YOU TO SHIP DURING THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS?

Our holiday rush starts in late October and continues through late December. During this period, we do our best to get products out as quickly as possible. However, it can take ONE WEEK OR MORE for orders to be filled. During these rush times, we regularly update our shop announcement and Facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/dellcovespices - for shipping updates.

MY ORDER SHOWS THAT IT WAS DELIVERED, BUT I CAN'T FIND IT. WHAT THE HECK DO I DO?

1. Verify the shipping address on your invoice is correct.
2. Look around the delivery location for a notice of attempted delivery. (Is there a sheet of paper on your door or inside your mailbox?)
3. Look around the delivery location for your package. (Was the package left near your back door? In the front bushes?)
4. Check with neighbors and others at the delivery location, to see if someone else accepted the delivery. (This does happen. Shocking, but true!)
5. Contact your local post office, to see if they are holding the package. (The post office may not have been able to deliver the order for some reason.)
6. Wait 48 hours. Why? Packages can show as delivered via USPS, but still actually be in transit.
7. Contact us so we can help!

THE POST OFFICE SAYS THEY ARE UNABLE TO DELIVER MY PACKAGE. WHAT DO I DO?

You will need to go to your local post office branch to pick up your package. If you don't pick up your package from the post office, then USPS will return the order to us after a period of time. If your package is returned to us without a return authorization, then we will assume you have refused delivery. If it was a food product(s) you ordered, the product(s) will be destroyed due to concerns over food safety.

MY ORDER ARRIVED DAMAGED. WHAT DO I DO?

We are happy to replace your order if a package arrives extremely damaged, free of charge. Just take photos of the damaged package, email them to us at david@dellcovespices.com and let us know what happened. We want you and your taste buds to be happy with your purchase!

HOW DO I RETURN MY ORDER?

Contact us by email - at david@dellcovespices.com - to make arrangements for a return, as return authorizations are required. Returns are void if the product arrives back to us damaged. (We suggest shipping products back via USPS Priority Mail - postal insurance comes automatically!)

Finally, mail the package to:
Dell Cove Spices & More Co.
Attn: David Beets
4302 N. Pulaski Road
Suite A
Chicago, IL 60641

Once we have received your return, and inspected the products, we will email you to let you know your return has arrived and we will process your refund.

DO YOU WHOLESALE?

Wholesale orders are always welcome and we love working with brick and mortar shops! Please send us an email at wholesale@dellcovespices.com with your business information and any questions, and we look forward to working with you.

ARE VAT TAXES INCLUDED IN YOUR PRICES?

No. We are not VAT registered in the EU or in Australia. Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply.

WHAT TYPE OF SHIPPING MATERIALS DO YOU USE?

We use biodegradable packing peanuts, which are made from corn. (No styrofoam here, friends.) We also use boxes made from recycled materials. If you know of someone who makes biodegradable packing tape, let us know! (That's been the toughest thing to find.)
