"ARRIVAL OF THE THRIFT MECCA" BY THE WASHINGTON POST
The Washington Post Style Blog featured Buffalo Exchange in “Buffalo Exchange brings thrifty fashion to D.C.” on June 15, 2012: "Washington joins the ranks of Williamsburg and Boerum Hill. Our fashion savants, honored for their perpetual worship of the bowler hat, will be rewarded handsomely with a style sanctorian cemented on 14th Street. The arrival of the thrift mecca, the fabled Buffalo Exchange, means the end of an era, one where vintage addicts took seasonal Megabus trips to Brooklyn in search of Union Hardward roller skates. The cash on-demand thrift and resale chain, founded in 1974 in Tucson, Arizona, has over 40 stores that morph to fit the quirks of their communities... Selling both men’s and women’s clothes, Buffalo Exchange focuses on trends, not brands... New York scenesters and Elle editors speak of Buffalo Exchange like contraband, a place where cheap thrills and ecstatic highs come with the added bonus of being able to disrobe and trade your designer jeans for something new-to-you in the store."
WASHINGTONIAN: "STRAPPED FOR CASH, LOOK NO FURTHER"
Washingtonian’s ShopAround Blog writes “Buffalo Exchange Opens on 14th Street This Saturday” on June 14, 2012: “Here’s what you need to know about selling your clothes... For those unfamiliar, the premise is pretty simple: Customers are encouraged to bring in gently used clothing to be sold through in-store buyers; they can also shop the inventory that caters to both men and women... The store mostly desires items that closely follow current trends as well as striking vintage clothes and accessories... The store is also open to purchasing the 'best of all seasons'... And it’s okay if you don’t own designer everything. 'We don’t buy by brand... we don’t only buy vintage, we don’t only buy high-end. We carry basically everything.'”
