In 2006 Cathy and Paul decided to give up their busy metropolitan lives in London and  change careers at the same time.  Paul had held a Senior Position in Banking and Cathy had worked in Teaching. So off we set on our new adventure and bought a Post Office and Card shop in Hampshire. We successfully built up the business having never done anything like it before. Fast forward to 2015 and Paul decided to retire so we sold up but wait- Cathy was ready for a new challenge so when Bay Tree Gifts became available we just had to buy it. Now Paul is perhaps not quite as retired as he thought he would be as he is kept busy doing odd jobs around the shop and the accounts. Cathy is in her element - all she has to do is buy pretty sparkly things. She carefully selects every item herself so customers are guaranteed high quality products. Sustainable, eco friendly, vegan, fair trade, hand made and Made in Britain Products are all important.  Have a look around and see out for yourself!
