Kerstin-Block-History-of-Buffalo-Exchange-First-Buffalo-Exchange-Store45 Years of Fashion

When Kerstin Block first started Buffalo Exchange in 1974, she never expected it to grow into the 48 stores in 19 states that it is today – she just followed her love of thrift shopping. “Somehow,” she says, “I came upon the idea that there must be other people who are equally addicted to this kind of shopping, but who didn’t want to sort through as much stuff.” Enter a new business model – a resale shop where customers could shop hand-picked treasures in one spot and also sell their clothes for cash or trade on-the-spot.

Kerstin and her husband, Spencer Block, ran the business hand-in-hand. Back then, their most common price was $3.50 and they sold primarily denim, hand-woven shirts and Kork-Ease shoes out of a 400 square foot space in Tucson, Arizona. From there, the business grew organically. “People just started bringing in all the stuff that they wanted to sell and they were amazing things,” says Kerstin. To this day, the company is still based in Tucson and runs much the same, though Kerstin’s daughter, Rebecca Block, has taken Spencer’s place in her current role of Vice President. We’re proud the company has made it to 45 years and look forward to celebrating with all of our wonderful customers! We wouldn’t be here today without you.

Coats for Cubs: Give Your Furs Back to the Animals

Now announcing our 2019 Coats for Cubs drive! From January 2 to April 22, you can donate your real fur coats and trimmings at any Buffalo Exchange location. All collected furs will be sent to wildlife rehabilitators, where they are repurposed into bedding that nurtures recovering wild animals, providing more warmth and familiarity than options like towels and sheets. These furs help injured and orphaned wildlife by keeping baby animals warm and minimizing human contact during the recovery process.

“It really helps the animals to have something to snuggle into,” says Jody Raines of Illinois Valley Wildlife Rehab. “It appears to relax them and makes them easier to work with. Every baby heads right to the fur hiding place when I take them in.”

Since 2006, when Buffalo Exchange first became involved with Coats for Cubs, we have collected and distributed over 15,108 furs. Last year alone, we collected 1,464 furs to give back to the animals. Help us make it another great year! To learn more and see photos of some of the animals who have benefitted from donated furs, visit CoatsforCubs.com.

Please note that we are not able to provide tax receipts since we are a collection point only and not a non-profit ourselves.  If you would like a tax receipt for your donation, you will need to reach out directly to a rehabber and coordinate the donation on your own. We have a list of rehabbers on the CoatsForCubs.org under the Wildlife Rehabilitator Info tab. Also, most states maintain their own directories of certified wildlife rehabilitators, which can be a great resource.
