A few weeks ago, very late at night Vintage Indie was given the opportunity to be in MF Magazine Music+Fashion. MF is a really cool indie magazine covering amazing Indie Bands, artists and rockin' fashion. This opportunity wouldn't have been possible with out the help of two complete strangers who answered a girls need at midnight. A special thanks to Dawn the owner behind Lady of Luxury and her friend Michael from Tigerlily Arts Web Design, who performed amazing graphic skills! Please stop by Dawn's shop and thank her with a purchase from her wonderful hand made soaps.
Each Etsy shop involved was chosen at random for their photos from previous features on VI. The magazine ad was the black and white print.
Check out these fabulous ROCKIN' Vintage Indie shops featured in the ad!
