Raindrops on Roses

No, I'm not about to burst into a Julie Andrews number (though the amount of Mary Poppins we've been watching in this house lately, it's not that a ridiculous situation to find myself in), I want to tell you all about the beautiful shop that is stocking a few of my cards.

Raindrops on Roses is a shop like I've never come across before. I don't know if they exist all over the place and I've never noticed, but believe it or not, it is a charity shop. Looking at the stylish decor, and high end (and brand new!) products, you would never guess, but all of the profits go to Herts against Cancer. Now, I do love a good traditional charity shop (I had no choice really, as until about a year ago, my Mum was the manager of the Grove House Hospice shop in Harpenden. I am not sure my Dad owns any clothes that aren't second hand.....) but I think this is such a good idea. Many of the products on sale come from local designers/makers too, so not only are you supporting a good cause when you buy from them, but supporting the local economy. Win win!

 I took a few snaps when I went in there this week to share with you. There is a HUGE range for kids - clothes, toys, presents etc. I love the car guitar babygro.

And not forgetting that it's Mother's Day soon, there's plenty here for your Mum. The Gin and Tonic hand cream is especially nice. I bought some for a friend's birthday and I had to stop myself licking my hand when I tried it. Yum.

Oh, and while you're there, you may as well stock up on some lovely greetings cards. Unique paper cut designs, don't you know.....
