A little History
Welcome! We are Eloyne and Bradley Erickson, owner/operators of Grand Central Stained Glass & Graphics. We’re a family owned business, founded by Eloyne and me in 2006. Eloyne sought to turn her twenty-five year passion for decorative glass into something she could share with the community; and in doing so recruited me to join her. Together we left the relative security of corporate life, striking out on our new adventure.
We rented a small storefront in the redeveloping Historic Grand Central District of St. Petersburg, Florida, and opened our doors in October, 2006. Slowly but surely the community began to embrace our business, helping it to grow to the point that, after two years, we needed to pack up and move across the street to a larger place. After four wonderful years we found we once again, needed to find larger space. So in September, 2012 we moved to larger quarters. Our current address at 2401 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg.
