Begun as a small thrift store by the Episcopal Church Women of St. Alban’s, the Attic Shoppe opened in a storefront on Corey Avenue 50 years ago. The Attic Shoppe, staffed entirely by volunteers, carries the distinction of being the longest-running business in the group of stores on Corey Avenue. The Attic Shoppe raises money for the church and it’s outreach programs.From Monday, May 5th to Saturday, May 10th, the Attic Shoppe will celebrate with refreshments from 11-1, 50% off all items in the store and chances to win prizes from the Corey Avenue merchants.
A SPECIAL DRAWING FOR THE PRIZES WILL BE ON MAY 10TH AT 1:00 pm. Prayers of thanksgiving will be offered by St. Alban’s Priest in Charge, the Rev. Gigi Conner, along with a letter of appreciation from the Vestry of the church. Also participating in the festivities will be Mayor of St. Pete Beach, Maria Lowe. Please do drop by and help us celebrate. The Attic Shoppe is located at 316 Corey Avenue.

This informal worship service uses prayers and music from the Iona Community in Scotland. Holy Eucharist is always celebrated at this service. Following the service we have dinner together. The candles from the altar are placed on the dining table to signify that our dinner conversation is as sacred as the words spoken at the Eucharist. Those who attend are encouraged to bring a dish to share. We never know what our dinner will be but we always have plenty for everyone.
