GIVE YOUR FURS BACK TO THE ANIMALS!
Jan 13, 2014 to Apr 22, 2014
Beginning January 13 through Earth Day, we will be accepting fur apparel donations (including trims, accessories, coats, etc.) to benefit the annual Coats for Cubs drive. The used furs will be donated to rehabilitation organizations across the country to use for the purpose of providing bedding and comfort to orphaned and injured wildlife.
With the help of our customers, we collected 952 used furs during the winter 2012-13 drive. Since 2006, the company has collected a total of 8,524 used furs on behalf of wildlife rehabilitators nationwide.

Austin Culture Map featured Buffalo Exchange in “Buffalo Exchange goes mobile with cross-country Airstream pop-up tour” on February 20, 2014: "Buffalo Exchange is widely known for its steal-of-a-deal clothing finds, but the company also has a history worth celebrating. This spring, the shop that made "buy-sell-trade" a sustainable way to enhance your wardrobe on the cheap is celebrating its 40th anniversary with an apropos — and casually hip — pop-up tour across the country. … For two months, Buffalo Exchange will embark on the great American road trip … popping up at all of its retail outlets, from its founding city of Tucson, Arizona to the hipster capital of Portland, Oregon to, of course, Austin. … On board the vintage trailer, cost-conscious fashionistas can shop a collection of vintage and Western-inspired apparel and accessories.”
