This Saturday in NYC, plus sized women will finally get the opportunity to second-hand shop en masse, at the Fat Girl Flea Market. Founded in 2002, the Fat Girl Flea Market was created to give women sized XL and above an opportunity to shop for cheap vintage and contemporary clothing, just as the more average sized population can in various thrift, consignment and resale stores across the country. Most of the clothes retail between $5 and $10, and come from many brand name plus size brands and retailers like Lane Bryant, Jones NY, Torrid and more. Admission to the market is $8, which may seem a little high, but considering that women have been annually traveling from as far as Philadelphia, Boston, and beyond to attend this event, it’s got to be worth it. Women (and men) of all sizes are welcome to attend, and clothing donations are still being taken.
