Ginger Fig really is the culmination of a childhood dream. Back in the 1960s my father was involved with the retail trade and I was forever playing shop with the props and advertising material he brought home. Later I spent 25 years honing and perfecting my shopping skills all over London, but never imagined that one day I would have my own lovely shop...
My partner and I moved to Taunton, and in October 2007 Ginger Fig opened! I wanted to make it the sort of shop my friends and I would love to visit and I’m proud to say we have a huge number of loyal and regular customers.
Then in January 2008 Ginger Fig gallery opened. The intention was always to provide a showcase for local artists and highly skilled craftspeople, with a particular emphasis on new and emerging artists.
Apart from myself there is Tina, who knows where EVERYTHING is and Molly and Jilly who mostly work on Saturdays.
