Our History

Anna's Boutique
(aka Anna's Christening Centre & Anna's Ladies & Children's Wear)

In 1988 Anna Markou lived out her dream of owning her own boutique when she opened "Anna's Ladies and Children's wear". It was a popular shop in the local community and was a safe haven for locals to shop for reasonably priced clothing in a friendly and welcoming environment.

In the mid 1990's Anna rebranded her shop to Anna's Christening Centre, where she phased out the ladies clothes to focus more on children's wear, specialising in Christenings, Baptisms and Holy Communion wear. This rocketed Anna's into the number 1 shop in London and the UK for the Christian and Catholic community to shop for their specialised niche items.
