... it's a complete retro experience. You'll find retro gifts and funky greetings cards and the service from Ana and Ian is spot on; made to order, unique and personalised hampers, gift bags and favours. The ice cream's not bad either.

I love visiting RPC whenever I'm in St Albans. They stock great sweets from around the world along with fab retro sweets and gifts. Their newly opened Milk Bar looked good too. Fab owners make every visit enjoyable.
