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.

The Boss, Claude Ramsey

I try not to overuse the word great, but we lost a great man today, Claude Ramsey. I had the pleasure of serving under him as director of Commercial and Industrial Properties for 14 years while he was the Hamilton County Assessor of Property. He was probably the smartest person I have ever known. He was tough but patient, kind, caring and compassionate. He knew how to get ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Not A Blessed One

When I read, to no great surprise, that 132 of Chattanooga’s “leaders” had signed a letter in support of “socioeconomic integration” in Thursday’s Times Free Press, there were two things that were immediately obvious to me: Not a blessed one would have (a) written such a letter on their personal stationery, and (b) not a blessed one would have ever voted for the current president ...
