Collectors Weekly featured Buffalo Exchange Founder, Kerstin Block


Collectors Weekly featured our Founder, Kerstin Block in “Could the Clothes on Your Back Halt Global Warming?” on May 21, 2014: “… In 1974, when Kerstin Block started her vintage and used clothing store, Buffalo Exchange, with her late husband, Spencer, in Tucson, Arizona, nobody wanted to be seen in used clothes. … “It was only poor people that wore used clothes,” Block says. “People didn’t collect them, even vintage clothes. People didn’t really go out and buy much used clothing in those days, and people didn’t want hand-me-downs and things like that. But we started out by having different kinds of things, ethnic styles and then also vintage clothing. And I wore these things. People would say, ‘That looks really great,’ and wanted to know where I got it. Then I’d tell them, ‘Well, it’s used, and I got it at Buffalo Exchange.” … the store buys stylish, wearable clothes … and a little bit of vintage. … making their curated selection of used clothes a better deal than what you find at Urban Outfitters. And Buffalo Exchange, which prides itself on being an eco-conscious company, also offers new clothes, but clothes that could go to waste otherwise. …”

Dear Buffalo Friends,

Greetings from the most tubular city of all time: San Diego, CA. Pacific Beach is a unique community in one of America’s finest cities. It’s just like the movies with palm trees, bodacious babes, beach bums, groovy vibes, and killer beautiful waves.

It was another amazing day for the Buffalo Exchange 40th Anniversary Tour as it stopped here at our Hillcrest store in San Diego! We found ourselves up to our eyes in beautiful vintage smocks, gowns, and piles of western boots and bags. We had even more memories and laughs with friends new and old! We saw everyone, from our favorite regulars and faithful vintage lovers to some brand new Buffalos in the making.

Buffalo Exchange

It was the hottest (and coolest) day of the year—to date—in California, particularly at Buffalo Exchange’s 40th Anniversary celebration in Costa Mesa. Shoppers and Buffalos alike rung in the Anniversary with four live musical acts, a henna artist, and our very own roaming vintage Airstream trailer stocked to the brim with Costa Mesa’s coolest classic finds.
