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 the recently knighted 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 opening hours will change with the season .
We will be open on New Years Day (2020) from 1-3pm but will then be closed until 4th April 2020.
We will then be open for limited hours on Saturdays and Sundays and will increase the days the shop is open as the season progresses.
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, and towards the purchase of supplies and cost of crew training.
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
