For several years we have been selling our fab products from a trailer situated next to Rock House in the Harbour. When it was windy, we lost items in the harbour itself, and when it was cold, we froze.
In the summer of 2019 we were delighted to move all our merchandising into more permanent premises.
With thanks to St Abbs Harbour Trust, the St Abbs Lifeboat merchandise can now be found in a purpose built shop at the top of the slip in the Harbour (next to Ebb Carrs Café).
Officially opened by Sir Boyd Tunnock on 30th June 2019, our lifeboat shop sells all the t-shirts and hoodies that you love, plus plenty of new products that we hope will tempt you.
Our shop will reopen for the 2022 season on 15th April (Good Friday) and the first weekend will be open 11am-3pm on the Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
After the first weekend we will be open each Friday, Saturday and Sunday 11am to 3pm through to the end of October.
As with all crew and station staff, all our shop staff are volunteers. Every penny you spend goes directly to both the upkeep and maintenance of our lifeboat and lifeboat station. It is also used to fund the training of our crew as well as purchasing medical supplies.
If you have a couple of hours spare every month and would like to help out in the shop then please send an email with all your contact details to the following address : firstname.lastname@example.org
