Do I have to pay to get in?
Are the clothes expensive?
Nope. Not in the least. They are cheaper than most metro thrift store prices. And we are talking great finds from some of your favorite brands, plus smatterings of vintage.This is a cash only sale.
Can I bring my boyfriend/girlfriend/best friend who isn’t fat? Do they have to pay?
The more the merrier! Bring your shopping buddies of all sizes and supportive partners are welcome to come! Everyone has to pay the admission fee, and the Flea has something for everyone. Really. Actually.
What kind of clothes are you looking for?
We are looking for plus size clothing of all kinds. We ask that donations be clean (washed, please), free of pet hair, and as close to smoke/odorless as possible. Give us your vintage! Give us your formals that you only wore a few times! Give us that dress you loved! Give us those cardigans, winter coats, jeans, business suits, and more! But, please only give us clean, plus size clothing!
I have a bag of sport socks/ripped leggings/baby clothes/size 8 business suits, would you want them?
No thanks! We aren’t interested in any of those things. Just clean, plus size clothes, in good condition.
Are there fitting rooms?
There is a communal, body-positive try-on area behind a large screen. You are also welcome to drop trou in the middle of the room. Dress like you are going to a sample sale, easy leggings and easy layers. There may be some type of area for you to put bags and jackets, but it will be unsupervised. Hopefully it will be warm enough that we don’t need more than a light jacket! Come on Spring!
