Welcome to the New Zambezi Bazaar

Located in Leimert Park on West 43rd Street Boulevard in Los Angeles, is Zambezi Bazaar, a family operated retail store that sells African American themed merchandise. The Kimbrough family opened and operated in the Leimert Park community over 20 years. Jackie Ryan is continuing the traditions of the original location, as the owner and operator of the new Zambezi Bazaar retail location.

As an advocate of African and African American culture Zambezi Bazaar specializes in Ethnic Jewelry, Clothing, Greeting Cards, Calendars, Bath & Body, Candles, Incense, Fabrics, African Art, Holiday Items, African Crafts, and Educational Items.

In additional to being a local retail location, we are adding an online store presence to enhance our breath of product offerings and reach beyond the Los Angeles local community.  This will allow us to broaden our offering and reach worldwide.

We will also be using our location for community and cultural events, including showcasing local artist and musical events along other community activities.
