One of my favorite online eye candy stores, Modcloth, has recently received some much deserved acclaim. The husband and wife team behind the online vintage and retro inspired shopping phenomenon were awarded the number 2 and 3 slots of Inc.’s 30 Under 30 – America’s Coolest Young Entrepreneurs. Susan Gregg Koger (24) and Eric Koger (25) launched their company in 2003, running it out of Susan’s dorm room in Pittsburgh, while they both attended Carnegie Mellon. Susan states she was just “a girl in the thrift store” – picking up items she wouldn’t ever wear, but just couldn’t resist – creating Modcloth was initially a way for these great vintage finds to get “a good home.” Read more about their awesome story here and happy shopping.
A big CONGRATS!!!! to Susan and Eric for their success – I know I love contributing to it, so keep up the good work. Now if only I could get them to open an actual store here in Virginia … hmmm.
