"Garage sales can be hell, so welcome to the virtual selling world!" -Dina
I've been in sales since I was 10-years old. So now at age 47 I sell just about everything from books to boats. Being able to have a career as an online Sales Broker gives me such enjoyment. It's truly one of my passions. With that being said, I envisioned Urban Thick as a virtual thrift store, selling quality items that belong in a specialty boutique. We're working on doing just that.
Recently we've added the Resale Shop to Urban Thick and according to the numbers, our customers are embracing this concept. In addition to clothes, shoppers can buy items such as educational tools, electronics, toys, and books. Our philosophy is, "skip the hassle of a garage sale and embrace the convenience of using a virtual platform instead."
Urban Thick Sellers can earn extra income every two weeks by selling their items in a virtual clothing closet or specialty booth and the best part is we'll do all the work! Many millennials have already embraced this concept. However, it's going to take some time before the other generations get on board. Still, it will happen eventually, especially since so many social media sites have incorporated new selling and "buy now" tools to their platforms. We're not worried because when they're ready we'll be right here to get them started. To learn more listen to our weekly podcast on Sundays at 6:30pm eastern time. Until then, happy selling!

"I've always wanted to be a model, and now is a great time to start." - Saundra
Saundra came to our recent modeling auditions and we took to her right away. Standing 5'10" wearing a size 16/18 she was ready to smile for the camera and show off her beauty. She heard about Urban Thick from one of our modeling ads on Facebook. It just so happened that a friend of hers saw the ad and by knowing Saundra's aspirations, immediately shared it with her. Within minutes she was registering on the site, making sure her photo stood out from the rest.
We hold auditions on a monthly basis, looking for women with different curvy body types, features, confidence, and beauty. We'd speculated that Saundra would be a good fit for us so before the shoot we gave her a call. Soon after she was posing for our photographer and later being placed on the roster for future shoots.
The Lesson: Never let go of your desires, sometimes it's only a matter of time. ~Let your curves be heard!
Making The Choice To Live Life On Your Own Terms Is A Life Worth Living! -Dina
Chay Crews also known to many as the "Alabama Stallion" submitted her bio to Urban Thick, hoping to start another avenue as a plus size model in her already busy life. We wanted to know if Chay had the talent to help us accomplish our mission of selling confidence through clothes. So I was interested in speaking with her.
When I spoke with Chay before her first photo shoot I was pleasantly surprised by her positive attitude and enthusiasm for becoming a plus size model. Our first meeting went so well, I asked her to join the Urban Thick family in which she accepted.
You will be hearing more about Chay on one of our future podcasts. This young lady is really doing some interesting things in the entertainment industry. Keep your ears open for more exciting news about Chay and her future endeavors!
Every creative start-up needs a team that can dream! - Dina
It's amazing to see how far Urban Thick has grown. One minute I'm taking photos on the back of a door, next a mannequin, and now beautiful models in all different shapes and sizes. The level of my business took off when I connected with my lead model Scheronda (on the right). We hit it off instantly and have built a solid supportive relationship since our first photo session. Recently we've added Saundra to the team and together these two ladies are unstoppable!
Scheronda is a fighter. She was the honorary speaker at our 4-years of Excellence Anniversary Celebration where she talked about her victory over domestic violence. I truly admire her southern charm and her professional work ethic.We're just getting to know our newest addition Ms. Saundra. She's a mother and loyal employee. However, with her ageless beauty this 5'10" women (without heels) has a strong spirit with the determination to become a sought out model. To learn more about Saundra, listen to our upcoming podcast this Sunday, February 28th at 6:30PM.
You'll be hearing more about these ladies in future postings.
