Allowing some extra time on your return to Charlotte Amalie, you can check your luggage right there at the ferry dock for free (last time I was there), walk down the street for lunch across from the harbor and then walk back to the ferry dock and pick up a taxi to the airport.
As far as I know, they will watch your luggage. There is good food right above the ferry dock at the Petite Pump Room and a variety of good eateries just west and south of the dock too, at Frenchtown. Anybody can point you in the right direction. It's about a 3 minute walk.

Please DO leave two hours to check in at the airport. On Weekends there is usually a very long line.
