Started by two friends, Carmen and Natalie, in 2012, when they discovered one of their favourite furniture & antiques shop had closed, and inspired to create their own, they opened The Ginger Tree – a shop stocked with beautiful old furniture and some locally crafted décor.
In 2017, whilst expecting her first child, Ruth bought the business. Without previous experience in the interior design field, but carrying new life, she dug in to growing The Ginger Tree. She fell in love with making the shop and her own home beautiful, and discovered a passion for sourcing pieces for people to decorate with and gift to others.

Now, several years on, the original shop continues to blossom in Harare, whilst we spread our reach to the online world and launch this website. With our roots still in antiques and vintage home-ware, we’re branching into varied styles and an ever-increasing range of everything you could need for your lifestyle.
We’re so thrilled you found us, and hope to have you as a part of our story going forward.
