Hoot-n-Annie was opened by two close friends in October of 2006 with a goal of offering Portland families a truly unique alternative to traditional children’s resale. In 2009, a great little family took over and after a few years in their loving hands, Hoot-n-Annie was passed on to two savvy Moms who were long time friends and shared a passion for family, community and the environment.
With new ownership the store took on a new look and direction. After 5 years of hard work, determination and literal blood, sweat and tears, it became a great success. In the Spring of 2016, with their friendship strong and full of support for one another, one partner left to grow their family and pursue a new career. The other stayed on to continue the store’s long tradition of treating their customers as friends, selling high quality stylish children, women’s and maternity items and making it all affordable.
The store was relocated into the heart of Hillsdale in early January 2017 and is in full bloom. Hoot-n-Annie has become one of Portland’s top resale stores due to the owner-operated philosophy, attention to detail, style and price ranges offered, organizational skills and excellent customer service! Hoot-n-Annie customers, family and friends deserve a big shout out for being so supportive of this mama run local business! Without all of you, there would be no Hoot-n-Annie Children’s Resale Boutique! I’ve recently embarked on a new adventure so be sure and check out our new HOME store!
MEET THE OWNER:
I am a Portland native and a Mother of 4 from ages 10 to 25. Having gone through every child development stage and surviving, I know how wonderful and hectic family life can be. That is precisely why this lovely picture my youngest drew will act as our family portrait until I can wrangle all of us in one place at the same time for a real one! Besides, that dress is amazing!
My husband A.G. and I have enjoyed being equal partners in life and parenting for over 20 years and our family home is filled with love, discovery, whining, laughter and lots of music! As a family we are very social and enjoy spending time with friends and family, exploring our constantly changing city, making messes while baking in the kitchen, trips to the beach and cuddling on the couch with a good movie!
My favorite thing about children is their individuality and unique personalities. At an early age they know what they like and don’t like and I love to listen to them talk and express themselves. I am excited about helping them share their style with the world and helping make my customer’s lives easier by having everything they need all in one place! Looking forward to meeting you!
