KIN is a modern mystical shop in the East Village specializing in ethically-sourced crystals, apothecary, and estate jewelry. KIN is a woman-owned & operated business and carries goods made in the fifty states and almost all made by women. Everything is carefully sourced - as ethically and sustainable as possible in order to carry on the highest of vibes.      

Thank you for supporting local small business! With your patronage, you help support my little family, the East Village, and Des Moines. Everything in the shop has intention behind it — from the stained glass twinkling in the windows to the peridot “sand” that surrounds the pendulums. It’s an honor and a pleasure to provide only the most thoughtful goods possible. I appreciate each and every customer and feel it’s a privilege to do so. 

Shop owner Heather Ann Parker Roe moved to Des Moines for love after teaching high school in Chicago and San Diego. Upon moving to Iowa, she ran a successful Etsy shop specializing in vintage and antique jewelry named Kin Vintage. She missed the in-person connection of face to face interaction, so she closed the Etsy shop and focused on a brick and mortar, aptly named KIN. She lives with her cherished husband, Cale, and children Silas & Goldie.
