Our Story

Passion describes our approach to most things in our lives, and our many interests spill creatively into our business and vice versa. We’re passionate about the Greater Des Moines community and all that it offers, particularly the neighborhood renaissance that we’re a part of in the East Village (read about the interesting history of the East Village here). We treasure local farmers and do our best to support the development of our local food systems and contribute to our area food pantry. We value the tenacity of those combating cancer and enthusiastically participate in events that assist survivors in their wellness quest.

Thanks to a cadre of loyal clients, new and old, we’ve been in business since 1999, first in Urbandale, and subsequently at our current location in Des Moines’ East Village since 2004. We’re grateful for our fabulous staff members that make a visit to Kitchen Collage a welcoming, repeatable shopping experience. We value their knowledge and their ability to be focused on you, our valued customer.

You’ll find our eclectic personalities revealed in the unique selection of items we’ve chosen for you — from classic to quirky, practical to eccentric, from elegant to waggish — a true collage. We’re always changing, always in motion, and always ready to warmly welcome you into our kitchen!
