Hi! My name is Sarah English and I love Buffalo Exchange, because of their recycled earth-friendly atmosphere! I completed a degree in Horticulture and have worked in Buffalo Exchange’s Accounting & Payroll departments for the past five years. Though my job is pretty schedule-oriented, composting doesn’t have to be!
I started working for Buffalo Exchange in August of 2015, as my sophomore year of college finally came to an end. I didn’t know what was in store for me, but I was excited to enter this extremely fashion-forward world. I slowly started to develop knowledge about clothing as I was exposed to all kinds of brands, materials, and qualities. As I’ve developed as a buyer I’ve started to discover my own sense of style.
A great statement piece can make or break any outfit! At the Downtown Portland Buffalo Exchange Madeline Music has been spicing up her wardrobe with fun and innovative pieces from her jewelry collection. From funky feathered earrings to pieces that she’s made herself, Madeline’s expansive jewelry collection is not to be missed! We sat with her to chat about some of her favorites.

Meet our Shipping and Receiving department. This hardworking crew has the daunting task of putting together new clothing & accessories, customized for each of our four dozen stores around the country, at a clip of 85,000 pieces a month. How do they keep up the breakneck pace? With a steady stream of tasty tunes, of course! Check out this eclectic sampling of the music that keeps our warehouse groovin’ and Buffalo movin’…

You might assume that a company with 48 (soon to be 50) retail locations nationwide would be headquartered in a glossy corporate high-rise. Not Buffalo Exchange. Heck, you could easily walk right past our headquarters without even noticing it. That’s because no one expects a company this large to be housed in, well, a house. Actually, seven of ‘em. Come see the neighborhood that makes up Buffalo Exchange HQ.

Here in Tucson, we’ve been having an unusually cold and dreary winter. This time of year, many of us get so wrapped up in the pursuit of warmth that we forget how to have fun with our wardrobes! As a music lover, one of my favorite ways to bring some excitement back into my winter wardrobe is to reference some of the greatest style icons of all time: rock stars—particularly those of the late 60s and 70s. In the past year, throwbacks to these iconic decades have been popping up on the runway in collections from Saint Laurent, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Prada just to name a few. To demonstrate how you can put together your own rock star looks, I spent the day playing dress-up in homage to some of the greats.
