About Us

Hi y’all! 

We are Georgia Anne and Mary Agnes, founders and owners of Grace and James Kids and sisters!  Our collections are inspired by classic, southern designs, many of which our mother handmade for us growing up.  Once we became mothers, bringing beautifully crafted pieces to the everyday mother and her children became a passion.  We design for Grace and James Kids with our own children in mind, and know that you will love everything as much as we do!

About Us

We grew up in Mississippi and attended The University of Mississippi where we were Delta Gammas. We were both teachers before starting Grace and James Kids. Georgia Anne taught elementary school in Chicago Public Schools and Mary Agnes taught middle school Algebra in Memphis, TN.

Our mother taught us to smock one Christmas when we were home together. We loved the pride of creating something by hand as well as the nostalgic feeling of making something so unique and timeless.

As we began to grow our families, we knew that designing and sewing our creations wasn’t feasible to do on our own. We also knew that we couldn’t give up on the pride we felt when dressing our children in clothes that carried stories and had been created with love. So, in 2015, when Georgia Anne was weeks away from having her second child, she called Mary Agnes with the idea of starting a children’s clothing brand. As little sisters do, Mary Agnes said “yes!” and the planning and designing began. In February of 2016 Grace and James Kids launched their first collection. 

Since then, Grace and James Kids has grown a family of customers who have come to rely on us for all things children. Our aim is to be the best friend you come to again and again for help dressing your little ones. 

Grace and James Kids is for the Momma who takes pride in her well dressed children, but doesn’t fret when their blue popsicle drips down the front. The Grace and James Kids’ Momma knows that clothes are meant to be worn and enjoyed! It is our honor to design collections that make both Momma and her children excited to get dressed each day! 

The Collection

On Grace and James Kids (.com) you’ll find a curated collection of custom designs we create as well as pieces from complementary brands that the we love. Our skilled artists create hand-painted custom prints that make each design one of a kind. You’ll find classic silhouettes for children ages 3M - 10 years as well as many styles for women too! Our custom items, including our embroidery, knit sweaters and toboggans, and hair accessories are made to order by artisans around the world. 

As busy mothers of seven kids (between the two of us), we know how important it is to have a one-stop shop to for all things children. At Grace and James Kids, you’ll be able to find the perfect outfit plus shoes and accessories to match. We’ve got ya covered, Momma! 

You’ll also find Grace and James Kids clothing in retail stores around the country!  

We are proud to work with women owned businesses. Everyone from our seamstresses and our embroiderers to our directors of marketing and our shipping crew are women!  

Do good. Be a blessing.

At Grace and James Kids we believe that “to whom much is given, much is required.” (Luke 12:48) We are honored to partner with organizations that focus on supporting women and children. Each year we are able to fully fund the tuition for a student at Downtown Academy in Athens, GA. We sponsor The Forrest Spence Fund’s annual 5K that raises money to assist with the non-medical needs of critically or chronically ill children and their families throughout the Mid-South.  Through special G&JK collection releases, we have been able to give a portion of proceeds directly to Extra Special People, an organization who creates transformative experiences for people with disabilities and their families, changing communities for the better! We are passionate about using Grace and James Kids to bless others. Thank you for being part of these blessings!
