Buffalo Exchange Spring Street Style 2017

Spring Street Style Roundup: Buffalo Exchange Company Meeting

By Jessica Pruitt, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Every year, Buffalo Exchange managers from across the country gather to discuss fashion, business practices and more during the annual company meeting. Recently, the whole team gathered in Tubac, Arizona for three days of training and camaraderie. And you better believe everyone brought their fashion A-game! If you’re looking for solid spring street style, a Buffalo Exchange company meeting is better than Paris Fashion Week.

Now that winter is officially here and arctic blasts are sweeping the nation, what better time to start thinking about spring? Plus, online shopping all the post-holiday sales is a great way to prevent family overload this week. For your 2017 inspiration, read on for the top spring street style trends, as seen on members of the Buffalo Exchange herd.

Buffalo Exchange How to Sell Your Clothes

How to Sell Your Clothes

By Jessica Pruitt, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Whether your closet is overflowing (literally) or you’re just looking to make a little extra cash, you may find yourself wondering how to sell your clothes. It all starts with cleaning out your closet. Find out the top tips for reorganizing your closet and reselling your clothes at Buffalo Exchange.

1) Clean out early, clean out often

Capsule wardrobe specialists and minimal lifestyle gurus recommend cleaning out every three months – once per every season change. If you’re overwhelmed just thinking about it, try every six months. When you clean out, sort into three categories: out-of-season items to be stored away in plastic tubs, worn-out items to be donated and items to sell.

Remember that most clothing resale stores start buying for the upcoming season a few months in advance. At Buffalo Exchange, for example, we start taking Fall inventory in July. We also buy current, high quality items in excellent condition out of season.  Moving to Hawaii (you lucky duck!) and wondering what to do with the brand new Patagonia jacket you’ll never wear? Bring it in!
