"MECCA FOR SECONDHAND" BY OC WEEKLY
OC Weekly featured Buffalo Exchange’s 40th Anniversary in “Buffalo Exchange Celebrates Its 40th” on May 8 2014: “… Buffalo Exchange is a cool store, and we want to wish them a happy 40th birthday! … The vintage selection can be small, but it's affordable—plus, it's one of the only places that's a mecca for secondhand, popular brands, which can be hard to find considering many retailers just throw away clothing once it's out of season. … In honor of this Buy-Sell-Trade store's 40th, the Buffalo crew from Tucson is touring a huge, 1969 Airstream trailer around the country, visiting each chain and bringing specially curated vintage and Western items, brand swag, and cake! The Tucson team renovated the trailer, turning it into a mobile fashion truck decorated in entirely vintage and recycled items, with a few personal mementos from the founders thrown in.”
