It's that time of the year again: time to round up our fave cards to send to your friends, coworkers, parents, cat, WHOEVER! It was a tough choice as usual, but somehow we managed to choose AND even let you know who to send them to. Here we go!
1. For your friend who drove to Seattle to see Queen Bey:
OMG CHRISTMAS! Things are happening at the shop right now...we have so much stuff that we don't even know where to put everything! Come and shop at ZimZim for all of the wonderful weirdos on your list for the holidays. We have all the things!
Shit is hitting the electric fan with all of the drama between Thomas Edison and Nicola Tesla! There's nothing like a juicy Victorian scandal about electricity to get us amped (heh heh). Mr. Tesla may not have gotten the recognition he deserved for his improvements to electricity back then, but it's never too late to be appreciated! If you have no idea what we're talking about, be sure to check out this very scientific analysis of the whole situation here. Geek out and show your allegiance to Mr. Tesla with one of many new items with his namesake in the shop now!
1. Tesla's Experimints
You don't want your breath to be stinky while you're in the lab.
"Dunno, is there still cheese crusted on the bowls from my Easy Mac?"
Having trouble remembering whether or not your dishwasher's dishes are dirty or clean? Not to worry! We've got the forces of good and evil to help you out with these new dishwasher magnets.
1. Childhood Heroes - Mr. Rogers & Pee-wee Herman
Nothing's worse than when your childhood hero turns out to be a certified creeper. It's all your fault you're on the dirty side of this magnet, Pee-wee Herman. Thank God Mr. Rogers is here to keep you in your place.
You had a lot of practice coloring inside the lines as a kid, isn't it time you put those skills to good use? We've got a wide assortment of adult coloring books for the young at heart, or for those who just need something to keep their hands busy. Those Game of Thrones episodes get pretty intense and you're going to need a mindless task to calm you down.

Now's your chance to create the perfect man. Give him purple hair, a tat with your name in a heart, whatever floats your boat.
Dads. How would we ever feel guilty for not checking our oil enough without them? Thanks to dads, we have Dad Bods, Dad Jokes, and, most importantly, DILFs of Disneyland. Let's help celebrate the invention of dads with some fantastically awesome Father's Day cards that will help show that you care without getting too mushy. Father's Day is June 19th; hurry over and find a card before the good ones are gone!
1. For the dad who's taught you a thing or two:
You'll probably still call him to borrow his drill/power saw/entire tool kit since you can't be bothered to get your own.
We're in need of a part-time retail sales person with mad display skills!
Fun, quirky, creative environment, awesome merchandise, and amazing
customers to play with all day. Saucy personality a plus! Position will be Saturdays, 11-7.
Bring your resume by the shop so we can meet ya! 144 NE 28th Ave. We're open Mon-Sat 11-7, and Sun 11-6.
If you live in Oregon, we're guessing that all this beautiful weather has probably got you thinking about camping. Everyone knows that the most essential item to take on a camping trip is booze (followed by food, sleeping bag, tent, etc.). If you're looking for the perfect container in which to hold your beloved D.O.C. (drink of choice), we've got plenty of options so you never go thirsty.
Nothing says camping like a PBR in a tin mug! If you're too young for beer, opt for the mini version, perfect for apple juice.
| $14.50-$16.95 |
Never have words been so true. For those who need a larger cup for their beloved beverage.
| $14.50 |
If beer isn't strong enough to get you near a tent in the wilderness, why not opt for a little whiskey (it'll keep the spiders away!)? Your cocktail makin' tools will blend right in with the rest of the camping supplies.
| Flask: $24.50 | Cocktail shaker: $34.95 |
Combine these socks with your beer blanket to keep those toes extra warm in the great out-of-doors. Perfect for stargazing, mountain climbing, or catching a glimpse of Big Foot.
| $10.00 |
You've got your campfire, your marshmallows, your beer, your friends, what more could you want? You're just a happy camper.
| $26.50 |
Happy camping! BRB, gonna go daydream about summer...
Who doesn't want a little Harrison Ford on their thigh? These Star Wars leggings just arrived in the shop today and they are EVERYTHING. They come in AT-AT, too. Your force will always be strong when you look like a complete bad ass.
We're a little bit obsessed with these new studs from Moonlight for Violet, an adorable geometric jewelry brand out of Toronto. It's almost stressful how many cute color combos we have in the shop right now...some sparkly; some simple, bold, and bright. These three faves are only the beginning; come by and dig through our little bowl of Moonlight goodness!
Looking for some creative ways to show your flamin', Bernin' love? ZimZim is here to help you out with all of your left-wing endeavors. More Bern merch to come in the next couple of weeks, so check back for updates!
Prayer Candle | $19.95
This candle has magical powers: light it up before bed and say a prayer: "Dear Bernie Sanders Gods, I will 100% move to Canada if Trump wins this election. And never speak to you again. Love, a sincerely concerned citizen." After your prayer, if you listen VERY closely, you may hear a faint gust of wind in the distance...
Don't be alarmed! It just means the magic is working! BERN BABY, BERN!
Bernie Earring Studs | $12.00
Nothing is quite as comforting as having Mr. Sanders on your earlobes. Is there really anything else to say about this?
Bernie Pin | $10.00
A classic campaign staple, one can never go wrong with the Bernie Sanders enamel pin. Wear it to Bernie rallies, grocery stores, hipster bars, or, if you're feeling really brave, to your slightly racist grandma's house for a family dinner. Warning: uncomfortable political conversations may ensue. Exercise with caution.
