Fullertons Gentleman

By Raquel, Buffalo Exchange Fullerton

Buffalo Exchange (1)

While our city might be small and easily missed on the drive from LA to OC, we still see a variant amount of trends and styles. One of the more predominant trends is a mesh between street wear and sartorial. Our customers are often spotted sporting popular street labels mixed with inspirations from the 50s and 60s.

This dapper and smartly dressed group of friends wandered into the store recently. We loved how well they embodied the street style of Fullerton. We asked to spend a coffee date with them and document their style in downtown Fullerton.

East Village Spring Transition

Buffalo Exchange East Village

buffalo exchange (3)

While in the thick of winter, we love to look ahead to the styles of (slightly) warmer days… We are already noticing runway-inspired spring trends popping up in outfits all over the city. Despite “spring” bringing to mind pastels and florals, we’ve seen designers put the emphasis on strong black-and-white looks. While there were a few floral prints, they seem more Asian-inspired cherry blossom than ditzy 90’s inspired florals of seasons passed.  Pieces with daring cutouts, peekaboo sheers, and up-to-there slits were all over the runway and the streets of East Village!  Polka dots have permeated, but sassy stripes are striking back.  Full Story


Tucson Lifestyle featured Buffalo Exchange's President and Vice President

BUFFALO EXCHANGE MOTHER-DAUGHTER TEAM FEATURED IN TUCSON LIFESTYLE

Buffalo Exchange mom and daughter pair Kerstin and Rebecca Block, were recently featured in the Up Front, Notable section for ‘Frock in Trade’ in the March 2013 issue of prominent Tucson magazine, Tucson Lifestyle.

Starting a business can be a daunting task. Imagine failing to learn new skills, losing your job, and raising a family. For Kerstin Block, those past failures would soon become successful achievements with an idea to open a unique clothing store. In a recent interview with Tucson Lifestyle, Buffalo Exchange president, Kerstin Block revealed “I love to shop, and I have the rummaging/digging instinct.” Her addiction to thrift stores and swap meets naturally helped her and Spencer Block to open the first Buffalo Exchange in 1974 in an old union office across from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. Today Kerstin and her daughter, Rebecca, run the family business with 48 stores in 17 states. Through the decades, Buffalo Exchange has become a thriving resale fashion retailer. In the interview Kerstin and Rebecca discuss how they have maintained the business over the years: “We have worked very hard to remain fashion-oriented,” said Rebecca, “Buffalo Exchange is very unique—you never know what you are going to find!” “We go by style rather than brand name,” noted Kerstin, “We are very honest with our customer about what an item will sell for,” Rebecca added.
