Vacation Paking List

Spring Breakers: A Vacation Packing List

By Buffalo Exchange Seattle (U-District)

Whether you’re headed somewhere warm and sunny for Spring Break or planning for cooler weather in a culture hub like Seattle or Portland, we’ve got the spring vacation packing list for you!  You don’t have to stuff your entire closet into a single, overstuffed carry-on to have an exciting vacation wardrobe – just pack items that can do double-duty. The key is sticking to a color palette or theme.

Ahem! Can you pass the denim, please?

By Jessica Pruitt and Amelia Gotobed, Buffalo Exchange HQ

If you have an ugly sweater party on your weekend agenda but you’re still fresh out of holiday cheer, our annual DIY ugly holiday sweater is to the rescue! You can always buy a pre-made sweater at your local Buffalo Exchange, but if you want to win the prize for the coolest, craftiest sweater, we recommend making your own. For this year’s sweater, we’ve crafted a festive fireplace. Forget Netflix’s Fireplace For Your Home – this holiday season, it’s all you!

What You’ll Need

Before you start, you’ll need to gather your supplies. We found a red sweater at Buffalo Exchange and the rest at the craft store. If you don’t want to purchase a new sweater, you can cut costs by recycling any color sweater from your closet. We spent a total of $30 on this project and about 30 minutes making it.
