Mila & fire vintage

by diydonaldreed

Mila and fire vintage store was started by two of my friends from back at home (Washington D.C.). Morgan Powell and Kelcie Glass are the owners of the online vintage boutique and are excellent examples of the DIY movement. They hand pick all the clothes they sell on their website, take the photos, blog and use twitter for advertising. They have become vintage staples in the Washington area, hosting parties, and throwing store parties were people could get a decent deal on their already amazingly priced clothes. They also travel to markets to sell their pieces. But of course what makes them DIY is that they do it all themselves. I wanted to write about them 1: I like supporting my friends and 2: they are really doing some great things with the use of the Internet and media.  Similar to my last post, it’s an excellent example of how success is made on the Internet.

  1. Thanks for posting this! I’m always inspired by DIY entrepreneurs. I’ve been reading Creative, Inc.: The Ultimate Guide to Running a Successful Freelance Business which has been a great resource. It included interviews by other visual designers that have made the freelance leap. Highly recommend it to all those out there who are interested in starting their own business.
