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!

New Owners!

Elle and BeeIf you’ve been in the store in the past month or so, you may have noticed two new faces steering the ship. We’d like to introduce you to….. Elle & Bee, The New Powerhouse Dream Team!

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. They are currently training and you should pop in and meet them!
