BLOWING ROCK — Meeting in art classes at Appalachian State University turned out to be just the beginning of Jacob Daniels’ and Melina LaVecchia’s life together. Now married, the couple are among the High Country’s newest entrepreneurs as owners of the Common Good Company, with locations at 685 West King Street in Boone and now 1087-2 Main Street in Blowing Rock.

“We feel very blessed at what we do,” said Jacob Daniels at the Blowing Rock store’s grand opening and ribbon cutting on July 7. “We are able to feed our passion as a job, which is great. And to be right here on Main Street in Blowing Rock is special.”
