"GREAT QUALITY VINTAGE" BY HER CAMPUS OREGON

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. …”

"TRENDS OF THE AGES" BY DAILY EMERALD

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. …”

The Daily Emerald featured Buffalo Exchange’s Dollar Day Sale in “Ever wish clothing only cost a dollar?

Yes, a dollar! But this sale isn’t just about cheap finds — it’s also about protecting the environment. All the money raised from the sale (only the items marked down to a dollar) will go to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum … The 2014 Dollar Day Sale draws specific attention to the preservation of plant pollinators through the Museum’s Pollination Hotspots program. … “Last year was a great sale for us, we had more people line up than we have in the past. People get really excited,” Janelle Derven, Eugene store manager, said. …”
