Emily Rems on Fat Girl Flea Market: “This event is so freakin’ awesome because thrift shopping is usually a fruitless farce if you wear above a size 12. But once a year, this fundraiser for NOLOSE collects second-hand donations from the closets of big girls all over the city, and then sells ‘em off wikkid cheap in a melee of plus-size bargain madness. Its only been going on for three years, but each year the event gets bigger and bigger, drawing crowds from all over. This year, I finally got my act together and filled a whole garbage bag full of stuff to donate. I was carrying it across the intersection of 14th and 6th when a gang of fat ladies from BOSTON literally chased me down the street and surrounded me in front of Grey’s Papaya.
