Season of the Witch

By Buffalo Exchange Ventura

Buffalo Exchange

“American Horror Story Coven” inspired more than anyone could have imagined. With the resurgence of Goth and the ever strong presence of boho styles dominating retail, it makes sense that the two combine in a delightfully witchy way. Styles ranging in black and earth tones to lace and sheer with tons of jewelry—plus a wicked attitude —make this look easy to pull off. We’re left with only one question: are you a good witch or a bad witch? Outfits styled and provided by Buffalo Exchange Ventura.

“A CAREFREE BOHEMIAN VIBE” BY HOUSTON CULTURE MAP

Houston Culture Map featured Buffalo Exchange in “Buffalo Exchange waltzes across Texas with Airstream vintage pop-up shop” on March 21, 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 … Buffalo Exchange will embark on the great American road trip in a vintage Land Yacht Airstream … popping up at all of its retail outlets … On board the vintage trailer, cost-conscious fashionistas can shop a collection of vintage and Western-inspired apparel and accessories. … the Airstream is worth exploring, too. Its hippie-chic aesthetic comes from eclectic styling; in true Buffalo Exchange fashion …”


Earth Day Kickoff

While $1 clothing is a good draw, the Buffalo Exchange $1 sale is held to benefit environmental causes. This year Buffalo Exchange has picked the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, located in Tucson, Arizona, as the beneficiary. How will my money help? 100% of the $1 sale proceeds go to the Museum and their conservation programs.
