Fat Fancy Consignment Update

updateCONSIGNMENT UPDATE:

The store has been so busy with new consigners and tons of new items! The consignment accounts are currently at capacity. At this time I am not accepting new consigners.  In an effort to keep serving the fat community to the best of my ability – the only exceptions to this are folks size 4x & larger, and people of color (of size XL & larger). This change will help to ensure that all the items currently on consignment get their fair chance on the racks (because I’ve been getting in more than can fit on the racks!) and to give me a chance to get all of the back stock out on the floor for your buying pleasure! If you are not a person of color, or your items are smaller than a 4x, trade for store credit is still available for specific items. If you currently have a consignment account and want to bring in more items please check in first to see if you have the items I’m looking for. I’m excited about this shift and look forward to continuing to provide you with fashionable fat frocks at great prices!

We have to Move!

FF Storefront JPGWe were all expecting to renew a lease with our landlord of more than 6 years. Given the current real estate climate, we expected to pay a good bit more, but guess what? Our landlord insists on raising our rent to more than double! (Interesting tidbit – We have the same landlord as Ray’s Ragtime.)

Needless to say, paying double rent is not an option for us. Fat Fancy will now have to move and that is an expense we and the new owners are not prepared for. We will now have to cover moving costs–first & last month’s rent, deposit, moving van, paint and build-out supplies for the new space. Please give as much or as little as you can to help a weird small business secure a new home and future in Portland. We are going to need your help with all of this!

Whatever happens, we are committed to Fat Fancy.We hope you will join us along the journey. Thank you for supporting feminist fat fashion!

#KeepPortlandFatFancy

We are so lucky to have met these two and are excited for the new vision and passion they bring to Fat Fancy. Elle & Bee have sizzling hot style, politics that align with our mission, and years of organizing experience. We think you’ll love all the incredible new energy they bring to Fat Fancy.
