Oregon Country Fair

By Sophie, Buffalo Exchange Eugene

Once a year, tucked away in Veneta, Oregon, people gather from around the globe to dance, sing, and let their freak flags fly. The Oregon Country Fair started in 1969 as a benefit for an alternative school and it has only grown since. With over 75 food booths and 700 artisan booths, the fair aims to promote “people living artfully and authentically on Earth.” Upon arrival, visitors can take dance and yoga classes, watch various performers ranging from Bhangra to juggling, and even gaze at seasonal wildflowers and butterflies in prime blooming season. At the fair, more is more and the weirder the better. Here at Buffalo Exchange Eugene, we put together a couple outfits as modeled by our employees for inspiration.

Earth Day: 5 Tips to Conserve Water!

Five tips to conserve water! Keep these tips in mind throughout your day and you can make a difference in water conservation for ourselves and wildlife.

  1. Turn the tap off. When you’re brushing your teeth or washing your dishes make sure to only run water when rinsing.
  2. Say no to bottled water. Opt for a reusable water bottle instead of a one-time use plastic bottle. The removal of water to create bottled water and the production that goes into making the plastic bottle is harmful to communities and wildlife.
  3. Load up on laundry. When you do large loads of laundry less water is used per a garment. This also works with dishwashers!
  4. Sweep it up. Invest in a broom to sweep your patios and sidewalks instead of hosing them down.
  5. Opt for native plants. Dress up your landscape in climate perfect plants. Look for regional plants that flourish on the natural rainfall only.

10 Year Anniversary

By Denise L., Buffalo Exchange New Orleans

We’re celebrating our 10 year anniversary this Saturday, May 9 from 11am–7pm!

Close your eyes for a moment and flash back to May 2005. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston had just announced their separation, Britney Spears was married to Kevin Federline, and the radio was blasting “Hollaback Girl” by Gwen Stefani and “Soldier” by Destiny’s Child. Hot movies at the box office were Kung Fu Hustle, Sahara, and Sin City. On television Lost was ending its first season and Family Guy was beginning its broadcast. Carrie Underwood won the fourth season of American Idol and Tom Cruise was proclaiming his love for Katie Holmes on Opera’s couch. In fashion camisoles were popular embellished with sequins or layered under tees, flared low rise jeans, boho skirts, and knit gauchos were all over the streets. For men, Ed Hardy tees and super skinny jeans were all the rage.
