Melanie and Chris retired from careers in the Healthcare and Public Safety professions to pursue a dream in an area they both truly enjoy. "As professionals working in our other careers, we would see so much anguish that retail therapy would become one of the things that we enjoyed doing as a couple." Traveling throughout Florida, and visiting small and Historic towns was somewhat a release from their daily grind that their interest in one day owning a shop in a Historic setting began to grow. "We would see so many cool things and visited so many great mom & pop shops that we thought, how awesome would that be to bring our own ideas toghether and create something totally unique?!" So, in 2016 the opportunity presented itself. "We were approached by the owner of Rain Tree Gifts who offered us the opportunity of a lifetime!" They purchased the already established gift shop in Historic, Downtown Melbourne, Florida with a quest to make it their own. Since then, the shop has undergone some major changes. We wanted to bring in something for everyone, things that you would'nt find next door or down the street. Unique products that are fun, interesting and could give you a few laughs at the same time..." Melanie and Chris support our Military, Veterans and Public Safety Professionals. "We love to support Veteran Owned Companies and products made in the USA. We always seek new ideas and new products to keep it a fun place visit, or to just pop in and say hello." Where does Rain Tree go from here? "Only time will tell... Visit us at the MOST Eclectic Shop to EVER Hit Downtown, Melbourne!"
