Old City has lately been abuzz with exciting retail developments (Meadowsweet Mercantile and the changes over at Scout Salvage, to name a few).  Now there’s another one to look out for this fall. Drumroll: Our feel-good friends over at Omoi Zakka Shop in Rittenhouse are opening up a sister shop, Select Shop 215, on 3rd Street at the end of October.

The still-in-the-works space is twice as big as the Pine Street location, which means more room for owner Liz Sieber’s well-curated collection of thoughtful Japanese gifts and little luxuries. Select Shop 215 will feature an expanded collection of men’s and women’s accessories, apothecary and home goods, alongside Omoi Zakka Shop’s best-sellers. Sieber also told us that she’s planning on launching several new lines throughout the fall and holiday season. We couldn’t be more excited. 


What’s New: Besides more sustainable apothecary items, like the Apoterra plant and mineral-based skincare line, Liz said she may be bringing in lighting and the occasional furniture piece. Also look out for a dedicated section of lifestyle goods made right here in Philly.

What Happens to Omoi Zakka Shop: Don’t worry! The shop will still be fully operational, with a focus on its colorful array of stationery and office goods. You’ll still find some of the most unique gifts and tiny indulgences here in the form of sleek Bellroy wallets, modern Komono watches and organic canvas and leather Baggu totes.

The Details: 41 South 3rd Street, Old City. Call Omoi Zakka Shop at 215-545-0963 for details and visit the Select Shop 215 website in the works.
