FIG, A GEM OF A FIND
We managed to tear ourselves away from the intoxication of the Ojai Spa & Resort enough to venture into the very charming downtown area of Ojai. A hidden gem, that we literally almost walked past, is Fig, a home and gardens shop on the main drag. You’ll know it by it’s very inviting, yet semi-hidden, rustic hallway covered in antique outdoor furniture, succulents planted in vintage cans, and hop scotch on the ground. I think I said, “I want to buy this” about 20 times (especially the yarn wrapped horseshoe featured below). Luckily for us, since it’s Fall, we got to gleam the seasonal, locally-made pumpkin planters, brimming with succulents. What a fantastic idea for Halloween! Scout this shop out if you're in the area.
