1. What does ZimZim mean? Where the heck did that name come from?!

Our owner, Carla, was very into collecting vintage matchbook cover art, and one particular matchbook stuck out to her: one for a Japanese bar called ZimZim. 

2. How long have you been open?

Since 2009! Before that, Carla owned and operated Naked City, then on Hawthorne, now located on Belmont. 

3. Weren't you over on Ankeny?

We were! We opened on Ankeny in 2009 then moved to our current location in 2014. 

4. Can I bring my dog inside? 
Only if we get to pet them! Yes, please bring your pup with you when you visit. We always keep a bag of gourmet treats from MEAT on hand and if your dog has allergies or isn't into pats from strangers, we'll just be happy to see them (and you, of course!)! 

5. Where do you get your stuff?

Most of our stock comes from small vendors found on Etsy or Faire. Many of the artists whose work we carry are located right here in the PNW! If you're curious about who made a specific item, just ask!

6. Why don't you have an online store?

We believe that if something is worth doing, it's worth doing well. Unfortunately, we don't have the time or resources to run an efficient online store, so we're holding off on that for the foreseeable future.
