St Albans is slowly becoming a totally fab place to shop, we have lots of lovely stores; Whistles, Space NK, Joules, Fat Face, H & M, Crabtree & Evelyn, Monsoon, Jones, the big high street names and lots of little boutiques including The Dressing Room which seems to win lots of awards for being good. Luckily for us it gets better year upon year and so when White Stuff opened a year ago we were all really pleased. No-one more so than me as I’m an old hat at White Stuff shopping frequenting their old Cambridge and Cheltenham stores when I had the chance. Its one of the most practical brands for the likes of me as they sell jeans and jumpers alongside dresses. The perfect look for a mum who happens to be an archaeologist!
We got invited down to the store as they celebrated a year of being open. It was great; face painting and activities for the kids, tea and cake for the mums. The temptation to spend, spend, spend as well. Apparently White Stuff do quite a few events like this in their stores and all the proceeds each store go to a local charity. How good is that? They need to shout about this from the rooftops! I’m looking forward to the next event, it’s a win win situation; charity benefits, kids have fun and I get tea and cake in one of my favourite shops.
