I was looking online for ideas for Christmas gifts and ran into a site that sells 12 different sea salts for $134.00 before tax/shipping and I was wondering if it was a good deal or not. It is difficult for me to tell because I am not a salt expert. Any clues?
Individually these items would cost over $186.00
