As I stand on the shore with my feet in the sand, my hand raised to cast a shadow against the sun in my eyes. I look to the sea as my hair whips and curls fresh breeze against my face. And as I feelthe waves wash, crash and blur upon the shifting sand I am reminded. I'm home. Buy the Sea brings you a seductive collection of coastal gifts and home accessories inspired by the sea.

There's nothing quite like waking up in the morning, throwing open the curtains and watching the mist roll away over the green hills of Somerset. You get your first coffee of the day and sneak yourway down to your studio, taking care not to wake the sleeping husband and you survey your work for the day. Oh, and you haven't even made it out of your pyjamas yet.
We're based in the Somerset country side, in an old piggery where it's not unusual to see a herd of cows or a flock of chickens charge by the window or for us to be followed through the office by apack of dirty spaniels and a cat who thinks she is a dog! We're often asked if we design and make things ourselves - or we just buy it at trade fairs - so here's the lowdown on Hiho.
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 hebrought 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!
We are here to offer you original, fun and stylish ideas to make your gift shopping easier. We've been busy at Frame of Mind, in Ilminster deep in the heart of Somerset since opening our first storein 1994, where to begin with, we offered picture framing in the back half of the shop, and sold gifts and cards in the front half. December 2005 saw the Wellington shop open, so we now have 2 stores, each with their own individual style.
The beauty and sentiment of a card reflects the loving thought of its sender. Often the smallest gift incorporating a few loving words and an imaginative design, gives the most pleasure. These are theadded values we have on each of our products which have been bought in to offer to our customers.
