Our cheerful storefront at 1608 Pine Street in Philadelphia

Omoi Zakka Shop has two stationery & lifestyle stores located in downtown Philadelphia. Driven by thoughtful design, affordability, and a good sense of humor, we select items that we like, use, and believe in. Our name means thoughtful, useful sundry goods.

Following the original Rittenhouse location in 2006, we opened a sister store in 2015, located in Philadelphia's Old City district. Each shop carries a selection of goods befitting its respective neighborhood, alongside an array of local favorites, hand-picked books and stationery, and coveted worldwide brands.

Our customers know us as their go-to supply shop for tools and treats to improve their day, from morning routine to evening.

Thoughtful, useful stationery, gifts, and lifestyle goods



Pronounced like "oh boy", the first part of our name comes from the Japanese word 「想い」 loosely meaning “thoughts and ideas.” This word omoi is nuanced with the sense of consideration and sincerity. It's an I've been thinking of you kind of sentiment that's at the heart of every item you'll find here.


Say thank you with style. We have just what you'll need.



Zakka 「雑貨」 is a kind of mundane object imbued with tremendous personal appeal. Some zakka are designed to be that way from the start, and other zakka become that way because you love them. A pen, a bag, a soap dish. The mug you take tea in, the windowsill incense burner, the wristwatch you rely on. Zakka are things that become the necessary items in your day to day life. They make you feel happy about your space, your life, your look. Say it like "zah-kah." Nice.


Thoughtful, useful gifts and lifestyle supplies for you and yours. Handpicked from around the world.



Hello. It's us. We pick up the phone when you call. We give a warm hello when you visit. We carefully pack and gift wrap your orders. We track down the makers, manufacturers, and artists of all the fine stuff we get into the shop. We tell you what's good about it and why we use it ourselves, and we take some good looking pictures, too. We are a small crew of Philadelphians who want to bring in a little of what's out there in this world of ours.
