I don't know about orris root but I like http://www.culinarydistrict... for things like fennel pollen and porcini mushroom powder. This is the on-line identity of Surfas down in LA (Culver City actually)---combination "gourmet" and restaurant supply.

World Spice Merchants has some great stuff. http://www.worldspice.com...
Mountain Rose Herbs carries orris root in addition to culinary and medicinal herbs. I have not ordered from them. http://www.mountainroseherbs...

I also found World Spice to be very good. And their customer service was very helpful when I needed it.

I think the Arora Creations line is pretty amazing for their organic Indian spices. www.aroracreations.com

I'm pretty sure they do bulk too.

myspicesage.com With a minimum order, there's always a bonus something-or-other - I usually wait until the bonus is vanilla beans!

penzeys.com! Penzey's is a family business based here in Milwaukee and they have THE BEST customer service. They are also very good to the community, sponsoring things and giving money. I often wander into their store, become intrigued by some new spice combo I hadn't previously thought of, and then buy it and spend the rest of the day looking for recipes.

Wow, I'm so glad to know about this. Their spice selection is not extensive, but I like that they sell broken Saigon tea, and you're right -- overall, their prices for teas and spices seem quite reasonable. Thanks for posting the link! ;o)

Penzey's is a great resource for spices though a bit more mainstream. A few things to keep in mind when ordering anything online - sourcing practices, quality and food safety standards. Penzey's in national, known and recognized. Their product quality is excellent and their food safety standard is very high (3rd party audit, etc.). You don't think about food safety when you sprinkle cinnamon on your french toast, but you should. I have recommended Penzey's to industry friends and colleagues when their needs are large and small.
