On Saturday, April 18, we will host our annual Earth Day $1 Sale. A large selection of clothing, jewelry, and accessories will be offered for one dollar. All proceeds from the purchase of $1 items will be donated to The Fund for Animals, an affiliate of The Humane Society of the United States.

The Fund for Animals operates the nation’s largest and most diverse network of animal care centers. It provides hands-on care and safe haven for more than 3,000 animals representing 150 species each year, including those rescued from cruelty and neglect, victims of the exotic pet trade, injured and orphaned wildlife, refugees from research labs and more, and works to prevent cruelty through advocacy and education. Annual Earth Day benefits at Buffalo Exchange locations have raised over $464,000 for environmental causes since 1997.

For more information, visit www.FundForAnimals.org/BuffaloExchange.

The Earth Day $1 Sale is cash or checks only for $1 Sale items. Buffalo Outlet locations (San Antonio & Nogales) are not participating in the $1 Sale.

Her Campus Oregon featured Buffalo Exchange in “Buffalo Exchange: Your New Favorite Store” on October 9, 2014: “…Buffalo Exchange is a fashionista’s dream; they sell great quality vintage and used clothing and accessories that are actually in line with current trends. As a college student on a budget, I love the fact that I can fill my wardrobe with great pieces without breaking the bank and when I’m ready to do some spring cleaning, I can sell or trade my items on the spot. ‘When I go to Buffalo Exchange, I never go looking for a specific piece of clothing, and it's more exciting that way,’ states Kelsey Abel, a UO senior. She thinks of it as a "treasure hunt" and always ends up with items that she typically wouldn't purchase at a clothing store. …”

The Daily Emerald featured Buffalo Exchange in “Thrift stores speak out – past fashions are today’s trends” on July 28, 2014: “… Eugenians have created a market for vintage looks both old and new. On the gently used side, Buffalo Exchange takes eccentric outfits and contrasts selectively chosen items to showcase a taste for an aged and new-wave taste. … Janelle Derven, manager of the Eugene Buffalo Exchange … Derven notes styles that take us back to the “fit ‘n’ flare” styles from the 50s and newer “Boho Fashion” that bring forward bell bottom cuts from the 60s and 70s. “There are a lot of 90s retro pieces getting updated, too – culottes, overalls, smiley face and daisy prints – I’m not so sure about the staying power of the 90s compared to some of the more classic revived styles, but it is a fun and playful way to mix up outfits,” Derven said. …”
