So many online and offline Plus Size Vintage and Thrift Shops are popping up all over the country and the world – answering the call for inclusion and great bargains!
We have to give thanks to some plus size thrifting and secondhand powerhouses who took a chance and made magic with their fantastic concepts, a keen eye for important details, and a love for Plus Size fashion.
Before we get started, I have a confession. Not until very recently, have I ever considered vintage, consignment, or thrift. Yep, I know.

Located in Easthampton, ME, Shop Thova specializes in curating Plus Size Vintage and Thrift. Store Owner/Founder, "Deidre" turned her hobby of Plus Size Fashion and Thrifting into a business due to losing her job during the Pandemic. Little did she know that this career pivot would be a life-changing opportunity not only for her but for the Plus Size Community.
Thicc Mama Thrifts
Kaesyn Green, owner and founder of Thicc Mama Thrifts has been thrifting for as long as she can remember. "In 2019, she stumbled upon the world of online secondhand stores and fell in love. However, she quickly found herself frustrated by a lack of size representation in the community. In response, Thicc Mama Thrifts was established in May of 2020!"

The Plus Bus Boutique
"The Plus Bus was created in 2015 by Jen Wilder & Marcy Guevara-Prete after they found themselves drowning in clothes. The two fast-friends hit it off, and their first event was a success, leaving them with an idea and way more clothes than they started with."
Now, the world of secondhand shopping has become normalized and is no longer frowned upon. Online and offline shops are decked out with brand names, amazing and unique vintage fits that upgrade our personal style and varied looks.
With all the talk and information on sustainability within the fashion industry, I hopped on the chance to explore and learn more. According to TRVST.com, “Buying or selling consignment goods reduces the carbon footprint you acquire for owning an item because you are now sharing the environmental costs with another person.”
