Meeps: Your New Vintage Haven
By Serenat Kivilcim
Meeps, which Cathy Chung and Katerina Herodotou acquired in 2011, has been around for over 20 years. In 2012, after a major renovation, they re-opened with a freshly-curated collection of men’s and women’s casual vintage clothing, accessories and jewelry, along with a cosmic costume room, where you can find funky wings, costumes and masks.
As soon as you walk into the store, you will find a wonderland of clothing and costumes, neatly selected and well-curated, nestled in the racks. Meeps offers casual vintage items from the 60’s on, along with an extensive selection of costumes. The prices here are very reasonable, so it will definitely meet your budget-friendly fashion needs.
If you are in the mood for fall/winter shopping and the discovery of new funky bands (the store plays very eccentric music all day), you should definitely pay a visit to Meeps, located on vibrant 18th St in Washington, DC.
