Two children’s stores with a cult-like following opened in Michigan in August. Hanna Andersson, the famous purveyor of striped long johns and other high quality, bright clothes for children opened near Nordstrom in Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi. Hanna offers clothes for babies through preteens as well as a women’s and home collection. The first American Girl store also opened at Twelve Oaks as a temporary pop-up shop, through early 2017. Check out their new doll, from the BeForever series, called Melody Ellison. The doll is a nine year old girl growing up in Detroit in the 1960s and is meant to teach young girls about the Civil Rights Movement.
