Buffalo Exchange How to Sell Your Clothes 3 Flat Lays of Men's and Women's Clothing

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!

Graphic prints in florals and tribal patterns have our hearts beating faster this spring! Mirrored prints are even better and we’ve seen this popping up everywhere including our faves Zara and ASOS. We love everything mint green; especially in combination with an interesting texture like this fuzzy skirt.

40th Tour: East Village

Buffalo Exchange (7)We were graced with some of the most beautiful weather of the year, which made our stop in the East Village a veritable sidewalk party! Our regulars lined up in anticipation and we lassoed in some future regulars with our Email List contest and sidewalk photography! We were poppin’ corn and spinning candy floss all-day for a bustling neighborhood. It was so inspiring to see East Village edge combined and styled with funky vintage! Our customers’ eyes were as big as saucers as they skimmed through our selection of fiesta wear, leather fringe, vintage dresses, sterling silver, crocodile bags, pearl snaps, and Frye boots. Overall it was a truly classic, spring day in New York City with a festive Buffalo Exchange twist.
