Happy Birthday to our lead model Scheronda Thompson. She is a true team player and beautiful person to know. When I started Urban Thick, I had a fictional character in my logo, but after meeting Sheronda that silhouette became a real person.
We teamed up about a year ago and right away had mutual respect for one another. With each photo shoot, we transformed Urban Thick into a noticeable brand. Sales increased and our social media followers wanted to know more about the beautiful model that radiated so much confidence as you can attest to in the photos.
Scheronda served as Ms. Montgomery Alabama Plus America 2014 and 2015. She is also the brand manager for Vixenz Designs out of Clarkesville, TN, as well as a speaker and advocate against bullying. The road of acceptance didn't come easy, yet she managed to bypass the negativity of body shaming with the love and support of her family, friends, and faith. Happy birthday again to one of the strongest women I know. Your more than just a pretty face, your the essence of Urban Thick!

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!
Ebony Walker, originally from Richmond, VA , knew at an early age that she wanted to do something big in life. For years she was told she was beautiful and she should be on television. Never taking it seriously, she continued to "live life" the way society thought was right. Settling down, getting married and having kids became her realty. After years of the same thing, day in and day out, Ebony stepped out on faith and started pursuing what her heart desired. She googled full figured events near her and made it her business to be seen. She attended her first event in Baltimore,MD. Curves Rock Weeked which was sure to help her meet the "it" people in the fashion industry of DMV. After winning the amateaur runway walk, there was no stopping her. Never being shy of the camera, she started booking with well known photographers to build her portfolio. She showed these photos online and became a hit.
Ebony hopes to inspire all women to go after their dreams and be comfortable in their skin no matter their age. She is truly and example that beauty is ageless. At 33 years old, she is just starting to really live life. Her favorite quote is " Confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can wear". She lives by those words each and everyday.

I received an email from a customer asking how to take care of a sweater she purchased from our store. I offered her this advice. Place the item inside a light weight laundry bag, choose the gentle wash cycle in cold water, and lay flat until dry. She was grateful for the advice and hopefully she's still enjoying her light blue twist style Ralph Lauren sweater today.
Buying and selling clothes from a consignment store is a smart way to shop. Many people think that pre-owned clothes are dirty,stained, or smelly but that's far from the truth. Most of our Sellers have their items professionally cleaned before shipping them to us. These and other misconceptions cause people to miss out of huge savings and awesome buys.
At Urban Thick we promise our customers that they are buying a quality item. In order to keep our promise we take every item we get in through a vigorous process. Only after several inspections, taking measurements, photographing, and writing a detailed description do we post our items for sale. You can read some of our customers' feedback experiences here. So the next time you're looking for something unique and cute to wear, take a look at our consignment shop, you'll be pleasantly surprised!
