ABOUT: ANNA FICKLE
Growing up in a small Southern Oregon town Anna couldn’t wait to experience the bright lights of the big city. At 18 she moved across country to New York where she fell deeply in love with fashion and design while working as a model, yet her creative side was still feeling a bit untapped. 9 years later after starting a family she, her husband and two daughters moved back across country to settle in Portland, OR.
Anna then started sewing and designing jewelry; after saving up from her Etsy store profits she began to follow her dream of opening up a boutique. Thus in 2010 Branch and Birdie was born, a niche where Anna could pour both her love of fashion, shopping and creativity while still maintaining time for her family. A labour of love, and a dream come true.
