Omoi Zakka Shop is a cozy design & lifestyle store 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 Center City location in 2006, we’ve recently opened a sister store called SELECT SHOP 215. Each shop carries an assortment of lines from around the world as well as working closely with local makers.
Our customers know us as their go-to supply shop for tools and treats to improve your day, from morning routine to evening.

WHAT DOES 'OMOI' MEAN?
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.
WHAT IS 'ZAKKA'?
「雑貨」Zakka 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 notebook, a bag, a bar of soap. 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.
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, producers, and artists of all the awesome stuff we get into the shop, and then we tell you why we like it and take some pretty pictures, too. We are a small crew, a group of Philadelphians who get a kick out of sharing great things with the people around us.
