Expensive Boutique
May 2017 • Solo
This is not really a tourist attraction. It is an expensive boutique. Although it is quite cramped inside, it does have a fitting room at the back.

NOT just a clothes shop - now a very dear treasured trusted random friend & I don't even live in Criccieth
Oct 2016 • Solo
You get THAT phone call - telling you your mother is seriously ill - you fling yourself in a car and drive from Oxfordshire to North Wales - you spend days and days watching her die - you run out of clothes, so raid the local charity shops, and while wandering along Criccieth High street you spot a hand crafted Wacky Bird Box with "Tit Alley" on it in a collectibles Shop with a note on the door - We are shut please go to Raindrops on Roses to purchase. It was such a wretched horrific week, my now husband was at home & my brother & I were watching our mother die, but this silly bird box was the only thing that week that made me stop crying. So I went to Raindrops on Roses & met Marylin to buy a silly bird box for my then fiancée from a neighbours shop, because it made me smile. I had done the emergency knickers, leggings, T shirt shop + PJ's for my mother in hospital, Clothes for my father in emergency care, at Tesco's in Bangor near the hospital. But I have been back to Raindrops on Roses many times since then while up in North Wales sorting out family affairs. The first thing I get is a hug and a kiss. followed up by "How are you, how are you managing, how's Dad" - All that from what was a complete stranger. I used to look through the rails & pick out stuff I thought would suit me in Size 18 plus because that's what I thought I was - Marylin knew different - she saw how much weight I had lost during my mother's passing & the difficult period over the next year or so .....said a lot of "No" to stuff I picked out as "ME" - so now I just shut up, go in for a hug & ask her what I need to buy - She NEVER oversells, brutally honest to the point of losing a sale when it is not right for me with alternative suggestions if available, she has amazing taste, fabulous eco friendly products. I have now bought many dresses from her over the last 2 years, worn on my honeymoon, worn at my step-daughter's wedding week in Cyprus, worn at a Celebrity Garden Party at the late Robin Gibb's Home with my "Hello Hello fab friend Vicky Michelle". My step Daughters love the 2 Gazing Hare's I bought from Raindrops on Roses & the lovely gift wrapping and personal poems. Life has changed more than a bit in the last 2 years - From Managing Director to Carer for a 91 yr old Father - ONE constant throughout this stressing time that was in full shown to me as an infrequent customer was the completely genuine instant recognition - more worried about me than selling me something - I don't even look through the rails anymore - Go in - get a hug & ask her to pick something that I would like - Last weeks result - gorgeous warm shortish fleece dress that I can just shove over my head with boots or leggings to go and look after Dad + the softest ever dress made out of bark for our wedding anniversary on the beach in Nevis + a name for a trusted local Criccieth decorator. Marylin exceeds any known boundaries for customer service. Such style, taste, empathy & awe inspiring in giving me confidence at nearly 60 for how I should look or could look - Biased now but after 2 years of buying from this wonderful lady - love her hugs, honesty and for making me feel better about how I look and most of all how I feel about ME....
