Itty Bitty Birdie has new home in downtown New Albany, MS; Celebrates 5-Year Anniversary

March 1, 2021 – New Albany GazetteItty Bitty Birdie in downtown New Albany, MS recently moved to a new location across the street from where it was previously.

The children’s boutique is now located at 139 W. Bankhead St. Suite C.

The business, which is owned by New Albany native Ashley Brown, will celebrate its five-year anniversary in March.

Brown will also have her first child in January­­–a boy named Decker Knox Brown. Her husband, Chase, is the girls basketball coach at East Union Attendance Center.

Brown said she moved the business to the new location because she needed more space. The new location is three times larger.

Itty Bitty Birdie moved into the new location around October. Currently, the business has Christmas items in stock, including T-shirts, sweatshirts and pajamas.

Brown graduated from West Union Attendance Center and then attended Ole Miss where she earned a degree in managerial finance and a minor in real estate.

After graduating from Ole Miss, she returned to New Albany and started working in real estate. Brown has been working in real estate for 15 years and works for J. Morris Realty.

She thinks New Albany is a good place to raise a family and said, “I’ve enjoyed doing real estate here.”

Brown also enjoys running Itty Bity Birdie and said she has to stay up to date when it comes to social media and her store’s online presence. The business has Facebook and Instagram accounts.

“I like being a part of the community,” she said, adding that she loves New Albany.

New Albany is in a good location since it is only about 20 minutes from Tupelo, not too far from Oxford and an hour from the Memphis Airport, she said. The cost of living is also less than Memphis and Oxford, she said.
