Duvall has a new Business, it is called Twice Blessed. It is a children’s consignment store and opened, April 1st. The owner s are Brandon and Amanda Jones and their five kids, Cassidy, Luke, Samantha, Simon and Baby Elizabeth, all which are home schooled. Once you meet this family, you will never forget them. They are generous, unassuming, genuine and happy. Their business, Twice Blessed, is just as warm and welcoming, as they are.
The Jones’s have lived in Duvall for 4 years. For them, that is a record. Four years is the longest they have lived in one town. They have totally fallen in love with Duvall and plan to stay here. They own a little farm in Duvall called Peaceful Acres. It is home to 41 chickens, a duck, goats, sheep, 2 cats and dog and bunnies.
If you are wondering how they came up with the name Twice Blessed, there are a couple of reasons. The first being their wonderful surprise child, Baby Elisabeth who was born exactly 8 years to the day, on their son Simon’s birthday. Having been out of the “baby business” for seven years, they were showered with everything they needed, from friends and family. Because of everyone’s generosity, they realized how much people had to give. They wanted to give people an outlet to clean out and give back locally. They decided they could accomplish this as a family, and have dad home to spend more time with the kids and on the farm. It would also teach the kids about entrepreneurship and giving back to the community.
Their goal was to open a consignment store that would sell quality baby and children’s clothes, gear, sports equipment and sports uniform accessories. However, their purpose was and is much bigger than just helping people save within their own family budgets. They wanted to be a part of the community of Duvall. They wanted to offer a wonderful place for families to reinvent and share what they already have, and to initiate a spirit of giving back. Twice Blessed donates 10% of their profits to charity. They support Hopelink, Acres of Diamonds, and Special Delivery. They also have a Wall of Fame, where they post pictures and stories from local children, who have made a difference in the Duvall community.
Twice Blessed is a special and unique addition to Duvall. Brandon, Amanda and all of their kids would love for you to stop by and say hi, and do a little shopping. They also encourage you to drop off items to consign, Thursday – Saturday. Their current hours are M-Sat. 10-6. They are also open the first Sunday of the month and plan to have special events on the Sundays they are open. Last month they had a Petting Zoo! Twice Blessed is located on Valley St. in Duvall.
