Community, family, and love. When you walk into anna & mom, you immediately sense those three words. anna & mom was a dream of Anna’s since she began her retail career in 1986. About 15 years ago, Anna and her mom had a wholesale business that sold baby accessories and gifts in 25 retail boutiques across the U.S. After the birth of her first child, the business was put on hold, but the dream to open a store never faded. After relocating to Atascadero, Anna knew she had found the community where she wanted to live, raise her family, and carry out her lifelong dream.

anna & mom officially opened on August 10, 2017. The boutique has grown and transformed taken on a life of its own. Originally, the store sold a little bit of home, baby clothing, and gift giving. Within the first month, Anna recognized the need in our community for women and maternity clothing and has worked her way towards adding that perminately to the business.
