I've been putting a lot of energy into projecting the right imagine I want Urban Thick to represent. It's been a long time dream of mine to own a business that can help others see themselves in a positive light.
Our business model is simple. Recycle your plus size clothes and make them affordable to other women in the plus size community while earning extra cash. In addition to selling clothes, shoppers have the opportunity to purchase quality clothes at super low prices. But here's the really great treat you get while shopping with Urban Thick, you get to see REAL plus size women modeling our clothes. These beautiful women are different shapes and sizes. How wonderful is that? We do other great things as well, like donating unsold clothes to charities such as Hope For Domestic Violence and AMVETS. Giving will always be a part of what we do. So while you have many choices on where to shop, take into consideration what those other stores stand for and give us a try! With us you can SHOP - SELL - SAVE & MODEL! See at Urban Thick.....
Urban Thick overall business concept isn't really new. At the core, we are a clothing boutique and consignment store. However, we have several unique features that helps us stand out from the rest and getting our sellers paid within the first 30-days is at the top of the list. We also specialize in plus size clothing while utilizing numerous online platforms to make rapid sales.
Most of our sellers send us clothing every three months. They are more than excited to about being paid every two-weeks. These are our V.I.P Sellers and they never have to worry about shipping fees. In addition their items have priority over other Sellers. We also offer free shipping to our first-time sellers. This way they get a chance to try us out without any out of pocket cost.
Although we are still considered to be in the beginning stages of growing into a huge brand. We are excited with our position thus far. Currently reaching over 2100 Facebook friends and just over 1600 Instagram followers. We have a long way to go but with each happy customer, seller, and successful modeling shoot we are destined to get there! You can help us and have a chance at winning some great gifts by joining us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. To shop for cute curvy quality clothes visit UrbanThick.com today!

It may sound to good to be true, but it is true indeed. Because we want to earn the trust and business of our sellers Urban Thick decided to do things differently. So we do not require our sellers to pay any upfront fees. Many consignment stores charge a non-refundable set-up fee to sale items in their stores, with an additional commission fee once it sales. We, however foot the bill of having the items shipped leaving the seller worry-free when consigning with us.
Once we receive a shipment, an email is sent to the Seller explaining our process. Each item is then inspected, logged in our system, photographed, measured, and posted for sale. A virtual closet is opened on our website and the magic begins. After an item has been sold the Seller receives a link to review all the details. Payments are sent every other Tuesday in the method established by the Seller.
Customers are very happy because they've received a quality item and our sellers are excited about the extra income with little effort on their part. Although we are the facilitators of the sale, our job of bringing the clothes to life through our marketing techniques and beautiful plus size models are not at all easy, but we love the collaboration.

"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!
