BIG FAT FLEA June 9, 2013!!
Friends! Save the date!!
The Big Fat Flea is an all genders fatshion flea market for sizes Large and up that benefits NOLOSE, and this year, it will be held at the NYU Law School, 40 Washington Sq S, NYC, June 9th, 2013! Just off Washington Square Park in Manhattan, close to lots of public transportation, air-conditioned, and wheel chair accessible, this year’s Flea promises to be bigger and better than ever! The VIP Power Half Hour starts at 10:30 with tickets for $25 (VIP tix are for the whole day), and general admission goes from 11am-6pm.
This new venue is significantly larger than previous years, which will make it easier to display and rummage through all of the exciting clothing we collect, which means easier, more comfortable shopping for everyone! There’s also a beautiful outdoor courtyard for fatties and allies to hang out during and after the event! We can’t wait to see you.

Sign up to drive to pick up donations here!
Here we go!
Could someone let me know if VIP tickets get you in for the whole day or just the 11:30am-12:00pm pre-shop? Thanks!
Admission is good for the whole day! VIP tickets get you in early, but you can also come back later and shop.
VIP Power Half Hour tickets!
Want to get an early bird view at the incredible clothing priced below bargain basement prices AND help support NOLOSE?
Fifty VIP donors get half an hour to shop before the crowds. This will allow us to make sure that the space we have rented is paid off and every other cent is set to go to NOLOSE. Some brands we have in stock this year are Igigi, Asos, Buffalo, Dorothy Perkins, Torrid, and more, some of them with tags still on! This event only happens once a year and these tickets will go fast!
Can’t buy a Power Hour ticket? Don’t worry! There will still be huge amounts of clothing available for general admission ($10), we just recommend that you line up early. Doors open at Noon. We will also be receiving new donations during the Flea, so as the day goes on the stock will actually grow! General admittance is paid for at the door.
Hello! I was wondering about purchasing things at the market - is it cash only or is there any way to use a card?
You can use a card for the flea! Though bring cash to support our independent vendors.
