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.....
What does a curvy woman in a new state do in order to make a living and create something she's proud of? The answer, she starts an online boutique and consignment store and names it Urban Thick.
Hi everyone, I'm Dina, your curvy executive officer and I wanted to share my "courageous" story and hopefully you will share yours.
In 2005 I moved to Georgia from California to start a new chapter in my life. At the time I was married and the goal was to live our dreams and start a family. Six months later I was getting a divorce and starting over in a new state as a single woman. #Courageous- The first "courageous" thing was passing the Real Estate Sales Person state exam, then after 20-years of working corporate jobs, I stepped into a job that was commission only. Wow....how different is it to work a job that only pays commission versus getting a paycheck every two-weeks.
In 2007 the economy took a dive and my Real Estate career was over. Life became really scary, I had to find a way to earn a living. So from 2007 until 2013 I took odd jobs while getting my business off the ground. In 2013 the creation of Urban Thick was born and the rest is history. That's my courageous story, what's yours? Please share your story and send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
When you do business with us, you don't pay us until we pay you!
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!

For the past 11-years, I've been building multiple streams of income and obtaining wealth through ownership. I've spoken with several groups of women about pursuing their passion and streaming their dreams. Some listened, started and stopped, others made excuses and turned a blind eye, while just a few stuck it out and are now on track to earning passive streams of income for themselves.
Now, I'm back on my weekly podcast talking about how to start the process of creating passive income and the importance of doing it now rather than later. We've entered into a new industry and most people are not even aware of it. E-commerce is here to stay and changing the way we live our daily lives. We're going to discuss this world and how you can benefit from it using simple technology and the many platforms out there.
Women around the world can listen to our podcast by streaming or phoning into our live show. We'll engage the audience by chatting in the chat room and taking their questions on air. Don't worry, if you've missed it, we'll have it as an archive file on the main show page.
Learn how you too can take positive steps towards a brighter financial future!
"I dress based on my mood and my mission,
so one or both can change daily!" -Dina
When I started Urban Thick back in 2011, I didn't see a lot of plus size online affordable shopping options. I grew up in Southern California where variety is the foundation of it's mere existence. You can eat just about any cultural dish you could every image, and with the exception of maybe New York, clothing options are as plentiful and diverse as the people who live there. So when I moved to Georgia, I was shocked!
Don't get me wrong, I found the basic commercial big girl stores, however because of my size and career, quality clothing is a necessity! Another thing that is important to me, is my individuality. I do not want to wear what everyone else is wearing. In fact I will wear a seemingly tight fitted dress for a night out on the town, but not for a meeting with clients. It seems that the multifaceted plus size woman is sometimes trapped between all tight or just alright. This is where Urban Thick comes in.
We carry a variety of quality name brand clothing and styles including some popular designer labels. You can get formal and casual wear. You can also treat yourself to an outfit for the "playroom" (bedroom) or the boardroom. We have it all! As women we need one place that has something for every part of our lives. Just like our hair, sometimes we want to wear it down for work, then whip it into an updo for a wedding. So the next time you're feeling in the mood to be you, consider what Urban Thick can do!
