Meet Our Team
London Blackwood (She/They)- Owner
Chubby Fem Thrift became my full time hustle in 2022. l'm so blessed to able to get to do what I love for a living!
I've always had a love for fashion, but thanks to the in-accessibleness of plus-sizes, I haven't always been able to express myself how I want to.
Chubby Fem Thrift was born out of my passion for fat inclusion and fat positivity. Not only do I want to make plus-size second-hand clothing financially accessible, but I also aim to bring fat positivity to our community through our newsletter and on our social media.
Outside of Chubby Fem Thrift I am on the organizing team at Shades of Colour - a local collective for QTBIPOC individuals in YEG.
I also adore reading Black authors (especially sapphic novels) and pride myself on being a great puppy mom to my three little wiener dogs.
Spencer Blackwood (They/Them)- GraphicDesign
Spencer is our resident artist and designer responsible for our logo and our stickers.
They work for Chubby Fem Thrift part-time measuring clothing and helping run our social media.
Aside from Chubby Fem Thrift, their art brand, Prairie Fruit Arts, focuses on themes of queerness, sapphic love, and trans acceptance.
