Who We Are
Our website address is: santosandpayne.co.uk.
Santos and Payne was formed as a business collaboration between Perlita Santos Payne and Nigel Payne for the purpose of selling goods and associated products to members of the public in the U.K. or overseas. Sales are online and we currently have a retail shop, Santos and Payne (formerly The Payne Bridge Gift Shop) in Bourton-on-the-Water. Our head Office and fulfilment centre is at the following address:
Santos and Payne, Windrush Cottage, Riverside, Bourton-on-the-Water, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. GL54 2DP.
Santos and Payne was launched online to carry on the success of our existing retail shop, Santos and Payne, which is in the beautiful Cotswold village of Bourton-on-the-Water. In our shop with its Riverside location we sell lovely beautiful gifts for men, women and children as well as quality souvenirs for both the U.K. and foreign visitors. Our carefully chosen products are “different”, unique and even personalised individual pieces that are not readily available in the large High Street Stores.
We are very much a small independent family run business. Nigel served in the Royal Air Force Medical Services for 22 years. Originally from the Philippines I was a Flight Stewardess for Gulf Air, based in Bahrain where we met during the first Gulf War. Our children often help in our shop. I have gained retail experience from working in various shops. I have also studied Interior Design, which I have put to good use creating our beautifully laid out shop.
Our sale ethos is to sell our products at a competitive and fair price. We are against over inflating the prices to then give discount convincing the customer that they are paying a good price. When those discounted prices are what the price should be.
We are regarded by our customers who visit our shop in Bourton-on-the-Water as being one of if not the “best shop in the village”.
