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.

40th Tour: SF (Haight-Ashbury)

By Quinn Coats-Fitzhugh, Buffalo Exchange San Fran (Haight)

Buffalo Exchange

It was a beautiful day here in San Francisco, and the charm of our gorgeous 1969 Airstream trailer only added to the ambiance of our predominantly Victorian-style neighborhood. Tourists and locals alike were strolling along the sunny streets of the Haight-Ashbury District, at first timidly, then boldly poking their heads into our vintage pop-up shop to see what all the fuss was about! We had rows of things like colorful plaid Pendleton pieces for the gents, and a handsome gaggle of resin- and Bakelite-handled purses for the ladies. Young and old customers had fun playing dress up and reminisced about the days of polyester while listening to the music of our friend, (and member of the local band “Owl Paws”) Derek and his trusty guitar. We had a surprise visit from some very loyal friends of Buffalo Exchange, who were happy to help us celebrate 40 years of doing what we do best! Three of our former employees who were with us in the 1980s joined together from various corners of the globe (even from as far away as Australia) to check out the festivities! Everything went off without a hitch and we are sure to remember this special day for many years to come. We await our 50th anniversary with fashion-loving hearts!

40th Tour: Berkeley

By Buffalo Exchange Berkeley

At the Berkeley store, we showcased the best of the best curated collection of vintage, one-of-a-kind, and western wear the East Bay has to offer. The Airstream was packed full of treasures that would make anyone’s wardrobe truly envy worthy, from 60s floral one-piece swimsuits to hand embroidered clutches. There was a little something for everyone to find that would fit nicely into their closets, from birdcage bonnets, fringe leather jackets, multicolored ponchos, and delicately layered petticoats. Go to staples in the Airstream were the multitude of belts and cowboy boots. Almost any style or color of embossed leather or beaded belt could be paired nicely with a Scully western shirt, Pendleton skirt, and pair of Justin Boots.
