what to store above the oven?

this weekend i am planning on installing a shelf in my kitchen to store my spices, so that i can move them from above the oven. the cabinet they were in is above the fume hood, so it doesn't get super warm, but i didn't want to take any chances. my question is, what are some heat-stable things i can put up there without worrying about their taste or composition being altered? i was thinking maybe vinegars, alcohol, and some flours - any other suggestions.
