Welcome to Kitchen Affairs!

Welcome to the Kitchen Affairs website! If this is your first time here, we need to explain a few things to you.

Kitchen Affairs was a retail store in Evansville, Indiana which opened on October 25, 1986 and closed on November 13, 2012. It was a successful business and closed because Shelly and Mike Sackett, the owners, could not find anyone to purchase the business, and after 26 years it was time to move on.

We hope to continue to be involved in cooking and cooking classes, but no longer on a retail basis. We also hope to move to Las Cruces, New Mexico before 2013 ends. Our dream is to continue to teach cooking classes and maybe write a cookbook.

For our several thousand loyal customers, we’d like to thank you one last time for all your support, and for your friendship. We could not have hand-picked a better clientele than we had for so many years. We hope many of you will look forward to continuing our friendship and perhaps come visit us in New Mexico. We’re going to get a new website started within the next few months. The URL will be Don’t go there yet, as we’re not ready, but soon, soon . . .

Mike & ShellyWe’ll keep you posted, and if you’re on the KA e-mail list, we’ll send you an e-mail when we’re ready with the new site and our plans. If you’re not sure if you’re on the list, or if your e-mail address may have changed since you signed up, please send me a note to and I’ll make sure we don’t lose you in the transition.

In the meantime, if you see us around town, please stop and say “hi”. We sure miss seeing all of you.

What made Kitchen Affairs possible was more than 200 great suppliers, the most terrific staff ever in a retail store, and especially you, our thousands of wonderful customers and friends.

Drop us a line, or call us. We’re in the Evansville phone book (if you still use one of those). We’d love to hear from you.
Mike and Shelly

Peace and blessings to you all.
