What can I say about this unique shop? Why is it called Zebra? Why does it have an elephant with a hat in the window ...  Why not?  Don't ask me, ask Ann, the owner who has been running this business for years now, only be prepared for a long chat. It's the sort of place where conversation seems to take precedence over selling stuff.  Zebra is on Newland Avenue and sells a vast array of arty crafty ethnic occult goods, cards, jewellery, goth stuff, hippy stuff, mermaids, you get the idea ... Well worth a visit.


  1. Quite eccentric, I see. I'd be inclined to stop in.

  2. Please tell me that elephant's head is not an actual hunting trophy.

    1. Fear not. It's just a printed T-shirt, realistic though isn't it?

  3. Yes, I was fooled! The t-shirt fades into the background and the head is so three-dimensional.

  4. I trust you bought yourself some more Goth apparel while you were at "Zebra". That was why you went in wasn't it?
