Anna Mittelstadt launches new children's clothing line, Mitt & Maddie

Chattanooga resident Anna Mittelstadt, founder of the women's clothing line Anna Victoria, has just launched her latest venture: Mitt & Maddie, a line of high-quality clothes for babies and big kids. Retail prices begin at $36. All styles are currently available for purchase online. 

“After my sister had her first child last year, I saw, through her experience, how challenging it can be for parents to find truly high-quality styles for their little ones at prices that don’t break the bank," said Ms. Mittelstadt. "This realization led me to explore the idea of stepping into the children’s marketplace. Now, with the launch of Mitt & Maddie, parents have a new brand they can trust to offer high-quality, well-designed clothes for their children – at prices they can afford.” 

Mitt & Maddie will release new styles for girls and boys, sizes 3 months-6, on a regular, rolling basis. All styles are currently made in Chattanooga. 

Ms. Mittelstadt founded her inaugural and eponymous brand, Anna Victoria, in 2012. Since then, the line has been sold online and in boutiques around the southeast. Anna is a graduate of Chattanooga’s Girls Preparatory School (GPS) and of Auburn University.

Drink Up, Chattanooga

I attended the meeting to discuss the placement of the sewage treatment plant at the Cambridge Center in Ooltewah today. My problem with the meeting (aka) dog and pony show, is that the meeting started out with the agenda of the Ooltewah Community Council.  After living in this area for 45+ years I have never heard of this group.  I would like for someone to answer ...

Roy Exum: Dear Faux Pelini

It has been my experience that of all the tribes and herds of different people on earth, sports writers are among the funniest people of all. Oh, there isn’t anything real sexy about Villanova beating Georgetown or a baseball player hitting for the cycle. Now, if a player hits a single, double, triple and homer in that order, that’s “a natural cycle,” and that is kind of fun to ... (click for more)
