Big things in quaint spaces, The Chelsea St. Pete and The Broom Closet are two of the newest additions to the St. Petersburg small business scene.
The Chelsea St. Pete is a new coffee shop and meeting place in the Warehouse Arts District featuring Batdorf & Bronson coffee, tea, small bites and stylish decor. It’s located at the corner of 5th Avenue South and 25th Street, and is a much needed hangout spot in the burgeoning neighborhood.

Visitors can shop a full retail section featuring eco-friendly goodies, home decor, jewelry, cards, spices, soaps and more. The upscale hangout is owned and operated by Teresa Vidal Chalkley, who has previously managed two boutiques here in the Sunshine City.
Ahead of its official opening, The Chelsea served up free coffee at limited hours in the neighborhood.
“We’re planning a grand opening for the future but for now we’re open Monday through Friday 7 am – 4 pm & Saturday and Sunday 8 am – 3 pm,” wrote the owner in the official opening announcement.
Welcome to The Broom Closet on the 600 Block
The 600 Block continues to evolve. Many businesses have shuffled around the block. Enchanted Notions, a beloved boutique moved from 655 Central Avenue to 633 Central Avenue, and in its original space a new concept called The Broom Closet will soon open.
It boasts “big style for tiny spaces.” A few teasers on Instagram show chic mirrors, throw blankets, lush pillows, and more for sale in the showroom. The owners plan to open in early May. You can follow The Broom Closet on Instagram for updates.
