4 Tips for Selling Clothes From a Buffalo Exchange Buyer

In my tenure as a Buffalo Exchange employee, I’ve spent many hours behind the buy counter, and I’ve seen it all: the good, the not-as-good and the totally unexpected. To those new to the world of resale fashion, the process of selling at Buffalo can feel shrouded in mystery. But fear not: here are my tips on how to get the most out of your closet cleanout and have the most successful selling trip!  

In case you’re in a hurry, here’s the TLDR for selling clothes at Buffalo: 

  • Launder your items first & check for spots, rips, missing buttons, broken zippers, etc
  • Bring in a variety of items (t-shirts, sweaters, shorts, jackets, pants, dresses — you name it!)
  • Get familiar with your store and ask your Buyer what they’re looking for 
  • Take the trade!

Coming Clean: Before Selling Clothes, Throw Them In the Laundry!

Even with the coolest, most stylish clothing, Buffalo can’t buy anything with spots, tears, rips or broken zippers — unless, of course, it’s purposely distressed denim or a vintage tee so amazing that a little spot doesn’t matter. As you sort your laundry, take a look to make sure everything you plan on selling is in the best possible condition. A little detergent (or even dish soap, if you’ve got a grease stain!) will go a long way in keeping your clothes from the dreaded “give back” stack. If needed, try your hand at mending any small rips or reattaching loose buttons. The same goes for shoes and accessories: do a double take for any loose or chipped heels, lifting soles, excessive wear or dirt. If you can clean it up, awesome. If it seems a little too worn, you may want to plan to donate it to your favorite local non-profit.

Shopping for Summer Shorts at Buffalo Exchange

 

Ooh la la, we are in the swing of summer! I recently took a trip to Buffalo Exchange to shop for my top summer staple – shorts – and I’m finally ready to let the heat waves and humidity wash over me! So grab a big glass of lemonade or iced tea, kick back and relax because Buffalo makes the once-dreaded activity of shopping for shorts easy and fun!

Buffalo Exchange LuLu Lemons

 

First at Bat: Activewear

I obtained the holy grail of soft activewear shorts, Lululemons! The red color is delightfully bright and paired perfectly with a mesh activewear top I found in store! Bold colors like this are great for outdoor activities because they make you visible to others sharing the road or trail and easier to find if you get lost. Forget about the pricey Lululemon tag, these were under $25! That’s a 58% discount…. need I say more?

Buffalo Exchange Jean Shorts

It’s Jort Season

The fit of jean shorts is crucial. Don’t fret if it takes a try or two, your body is original and all yours and finding the perfect shorts to compliment that is worth the time. The best part about shopping for these at Buffalo? They have a wide array of sizes and brands and styles so you can find a pair you love. I opted for a pair slightly higher than knee length and slightly longer than cut offs because I love that I can go casual with a simple tank or dress them up with a patterned blouse. The best part of these shorts? I can do cart wheels, backflips and somersaults in these without any fear.

Buffalo Exchange Hiking Shorts

Knock Knock! Who’s there? Hiking Wear!

Hello beautiful, comfy, soft, neutral-toned North Face hiking shorts with adjustable straps! I found these hidden in between two pairs of shorts that didn’t fit, but I made sure to look at every item on the rack so I didn’t miss anything. Pro tip – shop up and down a couple of sizes since fit varies so much by brand! And, when in doubt – try it on. Sometimes, the missing element of a piece is you! When I first saw these shorts, I thought they wouldn’t fit, but the adjustable strap made the waistline a great fit and the length was perfect for my legs.

Buffalo Exchange Gym Shorts

Comfy Time with Casual Gym Shorts

Also on the rack were classic, black gym shorts with white piping. A cute and comfy alternative to bike shorts, perfect for lounging and running errands. 

Are things heating up in your backyard? Catch a break from the summer heat by heading down to your local Buffalo to shop for shorts and other summer essentials. Even better, clean out your closet and bring in those great summer staples you just haven’t been wearing this year or your past-favorite fall pieces. Buffalo Exchange is buying for summer, fall and the best of all seasons! Just book an appointment to sell before you stop in.
