The OMGC is a 3rd generation gift retailing business dating back to the 1960’s. Bringing a wealth of highly experienced staff with an eye for stocking some fantastic products and gift ideas.
At our retail stores we aim to give you, the consumer, the best possible, friendly, customer experience that is sometimes lacking on the High Street. Everyone is leading busy lives and we want to make the gift buying and interior choosing easier for you with our unique selection of gifts.
The Old Mill Gift Centre has been run by our family since the 1960's.
In April 2018 we opened our second physical store Rhapsody, in Higher Market Street, East Looe. This offers some different lines from our flagship store and brings stockists not seen in Looe such as Steiff, Joma Jewellery, Bree Merryn, Otus Designs and Bottleclocks. Most of these items are also available online.
Both shops are filled to the brim with thousands of products; more than appear on this website. We hold some back if we don’t think they lend themselves to the online purchasing environment, whether they need to be seen in the flesh as they can’t be photographed to show them in their best light or because they may not travel well in the post. However our online range does include:
- a gorgeous twice silver plated range of Jewellery perfect for the lovely lady in your life. Our 'A Little' range is Joma's best seller and includes cute mantras and lovely quotes for special women in your life.
- The story of children’s dreams come true: As an energetic young girl, Margarete Steiff fought for her place in life. All whilst hitting resistance.
She created the first cuddly toy ever by making an elephant pin cushion and her story and message is still continuing over 135 years later. Steiff make collectable, quality and cute teddy bears and soft toys for 0+.
- We stock gorgeous items featuring Yorkshire based wildlife artist, Bree Merryn's work. Bree works from her studio overlooking the Yorkshire Dales.
