Buffalo Exchange Resale Shopping Tips

Top 7 Resale Shopping Tips: An Insider’s Guide to Shopping Buffalo Exchange

By Jessica Pruitt, Buffalo Exchange HQ

I absolutely love shopping resale. For one thing, you can’t beat the prices. For another, the variety of brands and styles in one place means you spend less time shopping and more time finding unique pieces that fit your individual style. But I’ll admit that secondhand shopping can be tricky sometimes. After all, you can’t necessarily try on the same pair of jeans in several different sizes or request the same T-shirt in a different color. Once you know all the resale shopping tips and tricks, though, trust me: you’ll find way more awesome stuff for way less money. Here’s how!

Treat Yourself by Shopping on a Weeknight

Buffalo Exchange Resale Shopping Tips Trying on Shoes

Weekends are prime shopping time, meaning lots of people crowding the racks and potentially trying on that one-of-a-kind piece you’ve been searching for. If you can swing it, shopping on weeknights is a great way to unwind and treat yourself after a long day at work or school. Plus, with all the customers that tend to sell at the beginning of the week, the racks will be well-stocked with fresh inventory. All the better if you make it into a weekly routine: you’ll find the best stuff by stopping in often to see what’s new.

After the holidays, when all the champagne is gone and all the sparklers are burnt out, it’s not unusual to find your closet stuffed to the gills with fun pieces you bought and only wore to one – albeit spectacular! – party. If you’d like to give ‘em one more chance to make an appearance in your #OOTDs before you sell to your local Buffalo Exchange, read ahead to see how easy it can be to bring your NYE looks from night to day with a few key pieces.

Night-to-Day Incog-neato!

A metallic dress befitting a starry night filled with fireworks can be brought back down to earth with a low-key trench jacket made from a comfortable jersey knit. Incorporate a chic translucent cross-body from the night before and slip-on trainers. Top it off with a dad hat to stylishly hide the bed head you may or may not (totally!) have.  Full Story

Oh, January. No matter where you are in the country, you’re probably kind of over the whole winter cyclone thing. Plus, after dressing up for most of December, it’s easy to fall into a post‐holiday fashion slump. Fortunately, we here at Buffalo Exchange have got your parka‐covered back! With help from Buffalo Exchange Portland (Hawthorne), we’ve put together some cozy winter-to-spring outfits that you can start wearing now. As the weather warms up, simply peel off a layer or two!

Café – Oh, Late!

We can all agree that getting out of bed is especially difficult on overcast winter days. So, if you ever find yourself late to a coffee date with your BFF, throw on cropped black pants with an oversized sweatshirt (we suggest going sporty chic with a purposefully worn‐in team logo) and a denim jacket. Finish it off with a chunky circle scarf and a pair of mod white booties. When the temperatures begin to rise, this is one of those winter-to-spring outfits that you can easily modify by ditching the jacket and scarf and rolling up the varsity sweatshirt sleeves. Next thing you know, you’ll be too cool for school.
