ABOUT US

 

 

Peggy Roth, the owner of Banbury Cross, had been involved in clothing since she was a child herself. Receiving her first sewing machine for Christmas at the age of ten she continued with her passion of sewing and designing clothes for herself, her 7 siblings, and friends.
.
After receiving a BS in Vocational Home Economics Education, she married and had seven children. She enjoyed sewing for them, coordinating outfits for them for holidays and portraits. She also sewed for friends children and family.
.
Eventually she went into business with a friend designing and selling through home shows: PK Designs in New Orleans. Shortly after her seventh child was born she got the opportunity to design for another home show children's clothing company, Kelly's Kids. She designed their dressier line "Caroline Classics".
.
After working for Kelly's Kids for 8 1/2 years, she started her own line of Banbury Cross. At first sold through Trunk Home Shows and then opening the first Storefront in Natchez, Ms in 1992. Upon moving back home to New Orleans she opened her second location in New Orleans. At this time all of the items were Banbury Cross label.
.
As her children grew and finished college and married a third shop was opened in Hattiesburg,Ms with her oldest daughter running the store there. Right before Katrina, she opened her fourth store in Metairie, La, where the main store is today. After Katrina we did not reopen the New Orleans store and opened another in Baton Rouge. With things being a little stressful without a house in New Orleans (flooded) she eventually closed the Hattiesburg and Natchez stores.
.
Over the years Banbury Cross has grown to be a "small department store" having anything that you need to dress and coordinate your children for any occasion: weddings, communions, portraits, school, fun from head to toe. We have classic traditional style clothing that makes children look like children. Quality,style and value
are our standards when choosing inventory.
.
Banbury Cross has always been a family run business. Daughters, daughter-in-laws,nieces, friends and soon, granddaughters, work hard to make us who we are today.
.
We love to make picture perfect memories for you of your children. Much of the clothing still carries the Banbury Cross label.
