Heidi Pruett & Anne Tippett are co-owners of the Children’s Clothing Exchange. Heidi & Anne bought CCE seven years ago, from its original owners; they had owned CCE for over ten years, and both Anne & Heidi started out as consignors and volunteers. They both quickly realized what a great business CCE was, and when the opportunity arose for them to buy the business, they quickly jumped at the chance.
Under Heidi & Anne, CCE has not only maintained its reputation for high quality children’s items, but they also expanded the selection to include women’s clothing and accessories, as well as a wide range of household items. They also instituted online tagging and bar code scanning for all items.
The sale has grown quite a bit since Anne & Heidi first bought it and now boasts over 400 consignors. They look forward to continued growth and innovation for the sale.
Heidi Pruett and her husband have three girls, Harrison, Hayden & Hayes. Heidi grew up in North Carolina, and met her husband Fleming while at Auburn. Fleming owns Pruett Construction, and Heidi has TWO other part time jobs, one as a case manager at HealthSouth and as a PRN nurse at Jackson Medical Center
Anne Tippett and her husband have two children, Maggie & Fred. Anne grew up in Montgomery, and beside her college years in South Carolina, has always called Montgomery home. In addition to running CCE, Anne also works part-time at her church, St. John’s Episcopal Church; her husband Chris is an architect. She is a big fan of movies and reading, and when she’s not in the middle of the CCE craziness loves to exercise and play tennis.
