Our Vision


Raindrops on Roses began in 2012 and became known as the "charity shop with a difference", a physical store in the city of St Albans just opposite the clock tower. 

Our vision was to donate our profits to cancer while being run by an enthusiastic team of volunteers. We envisaged the store to be a celebration of the local community, stocking local suppliers where products could tell (and sell) their own story. 

Over the last 8 years, things haven't changed. We're simply evolving with changes times and that welcomes our wonderful new (homemade) website. We want it to have the exact same feel when you enter the store, homemade and welcoming. 

We understand that customers to the store want to come and buy unique gifts for friends, family and themselves (who doesn't love some self-love) all while being all to donate simultaneously. Currently the website offers this through "Collect In-store" but we truly hope to bring this to a wider community soon by offering delivery. Be sure to sign up to our newsletter for details.
