A Weston-super-Mare gift shop owner has joined forces with a fellow business to open a new shop in the town centre.

Box Of Delights, owned by Beverley Bottomley, was previously based in Meadow Street. However, it is now located within Nikki Bray’s Decor8 Balloons business in Orchard Street after the pair decided to combine their talents and operate out of one shop.

Box Of Delights, which sells a range of gifts, celebration items, upcycled furniture and gift-wrapping, is located in the front of the shop, while Decor8 Balloons is based in the back.

Mrs Bottomley has previously owned several businesses in Weston, including an interior design shop, and owned a shop similar to Box Of Delights in Spain for six years.

She said: “I had another shop in Meadow Street and I found there are people here with money and will buy stuff if they think it is good value.
