“Twice Upon a Time” Slated to Open in March

Ten years ago, Wendy Bisazza had a dream.  The dream featured Wendy as owner and operator of a children’s consignment shop with the name “Twice Upon a Time.”

Ten years ago, Wendy Bisazza had a dream.  The dream featured Wendy as owner and operator of a children’s consignment shop with the name “Twice Upon a Time.”

 

Fast-forward to the fall of 2018.  Wendy’s part-time employer needed her full time.  This time demand was not doable, as Wendy is the mom of a very special son, Jackson, who had just undergone his 32nd surgery with a prolonged recovery period expected. 

Wendy’s husband encouraged her to “go for” her dream now.  She quit her job and began looking in Holliston for a good store location.  As luck would have it, 300 Woodland Street was available, and just the right size to fulfill her little consignment shop dream.  The former location of a Karate studio, the space was filled with oil burners and other such storage paraphernalia.  Wendy quickly “just said yes,” and cleaned and painted the walls and floors.  It is a bright and clean slate for her displays.

Presently, Wendy offers boys’ and girls’ gently used clothing in sizes 0 to 3T, and an assortment of special made to order items.  A child-size table and chairs is positioned to accept the browser’s waiting little one.   The windows overlook the education park of Adams, Placentino, and Miller Schools. 

Just how does this consignment store operate?  Wendy explained, ”People can drop off their items, and I will offer to buy the ‘lot.’  You will get money immediately.”  This process is a bit different from other consignment shops where the client only receives cash after the sale of an item…sometimes weeks later.  Wendy added that in order to give back to the community, any items from her “lot” purchase that don’t make it to her shelves will be donated to local charities, preferably within Holliston.

Wendy expects to open in the next couple of weeks, with an early-March weekend event planned.  Anticipated store hours will be Tues, Wed, Friday and Saturday: 9-3, and Thursday 9-5.  Presently, Wendy is accepting clothing by appointment only. (Call 774.217.3753)  We look forward to welcoming a new small business to Holliston!
