In the beginning…

Heaven Sent was founded twenty-five years ago when two moms dreamed of a children’s consignment store with a high quality feel that emphasized family friendly service. Original owners Sheryl Peters-Knecht and Teresa Simpson both had newborn baby girls they loved to buy clothing and toys for, but didn’t like paying the high prices of regular retail. Their first 1200 square foot store in Federal Way opened in October 1983 and was an immediate success. While one owner worked the store, the other owner babysat the 2 girls. Initially all merchandise was consigned, but Heaven Sent gradually began buying items outright to make it a simpler process for all.

Due to ever increasing inventory and sales, six years later (and several children later), Sheryl and Teresa moved the store to the present 2200 square foot location in Neon Plaza close to the local Federal Way mall. At the new location they saw a dramatic increase in sales so added several employees. Over the years Heaven Sent has had many devoted employees, some working for 15 years or more. During the mid nineties they also operated a store in Lakewood south of Tacoma. It was closed in 1998, as the sales were not as strong as in Federal Way.

In 2003, Sheryl decided to retire so sold her interest to one of Heaven Sent’s first employees, Sue Campbell.

Even though their own children are almost all grown up, Sue and Teresa still enjoy running the business. Over the last few years they’ve had the pleasure of seeing some of the original customers that “graduated” from Heaven Sent years ago coming back in now as grandparents. Federal Way has been a wonderful community to do business in. They are very thankful for all the wonderful customers who’ve supported Heaven Sent all these years.
