    UPDATE:

    We're in the mood for some serious vintage shopping this weekend, so we dug into the archives to revisit the ladies behind our favorite D.C. spot. This story was originally published on October 12.

    When you think "local girls gone big-time," the names Cathy Chung and Katerina Herodotou should be at the top of your list. The owners of 14th Street vintage emporium Treasury started out hosting pop-up shops in the District before anyone had even heard of a pop-up shop, and after they moved into their light-filled bricks-and-mortar space, they started collaborating on jewelry lines, dreaming up in-house clothing collections, and generally carrying some of the coolest, most eclectic vintage in town.

The transformation created an open, breezy, inviting space, filled with the carefully edited vintage treasures we've come to expect, but now with a community event component added on — think live music, magazine parties, and other sweet shindigs. And in the midst of all that empire-building, Cathy and Katerina sat down with us for a two-on-one, dishing about shopping, personal style, and what entrepreneurial gals can glean from their experience.
