Another vintage store popping up in D.C.

Is it just me, or is talk of vintage and consignment shopping cropping up a lot lately? Today’s news: A vintage spot called Mimilah will be spending time atop Miss Pixie’s Furnishings and Whatnot beginning Saturday. (Get there.)

In case you missed it, The Root DC had this interview with Jeanne Nicholson, who owns Second Time Around of Bravo TV fame, Wednesday. Here’s a snippet:

Q: Have you noticed an increase in interest since the economy has changed?
A: Personally, this is a dream job! Marketing for a high-end fashion company that makes designer apparel affordable is incredibly rewarding (and fun!) The economy has been a huge factor in the consignment world. People are really looking to get the most for their money, and with consignment, you can get name brand merchandise for a fraction of the original value. Consignment has also become a great way for people to get a return on their original investment. If you’re not going to wear an item, you can consign it and make money instead of having it take up space in your closet, and it truly becomes a win-win.
