If you click the word Spices in the menu bar, you will find list of categories of spices - like chilis, curries, salt-free, etc. - as well as links for each letter of the alphabet, to browse the spices that way. There's also a search box in the dropdown menu.
As most food retail sites do, they use the home page to highlight seasonal ingredients and specials.
Bill Penzey has been pretty open about his political leanings for a couple of years now. He has gained many more customers than he has lost for this. I continue to buy Penzeys spices because the quality is excellent and I want to support the business. I don't see anything about it on the website, though.
