<<< Indian markets are a great place for many spices and some unusual
items can also be had at Asian markets.

It pays to do your shopping at these places when you can. As an
example, $20 will buy me a huge shopping bag full of stuff at the
Indian market, some of which I can't get anywhere else. Even for the
ones I can, I might have gotten three or four small jars of spices
for the same price at a supermarket or gourmet store for the lesser
priced items. >>>

Yes, such as big bags of cloves for the price of a single jar of them  
from the grocery.

However, most of the spices I've seen in the ethnic stores tend to  
come in plastic bags. Not the best way to store them for any length  
of time. So try to move them to better storage containers and keep  
them out of the heat and sunlight.
