DoubleTake Austin, a resale and gift shop, will open soon at 6318 Burnet Road, in the former location of The Lightbulb Shop.

According to a post on social media website Nextdoor by store General Manager Lynne Skinner, all of the profits will go to the Center for Child Protection, an Austin-based nonprofit that works to reduce trauma for children who are suspected victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse or have witnessed a violent crime.


Skinner said the shop was originally scheduled to open in late March but had to delay plans due to the coronavirus pandemic. "Lightbulb Ed," the famous mascot on top of the shop, will remain, Skinner said. 512-922-5844. www.doubletakeatx.org
