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!

Black on the Canvas featured Buffalo Exchange Georgetown

“A REFRESHING CHANGE” BY BLACK ON THE CANVAS

Black on the Canvas featured Buffalo Exchange Georgetown in “Buffalo Exchange” on July 5, 2015: “I recently visited Buffalo Exchange, a thrift shop in Georgetown … The store offers an array of unique pieces, including clothing, shoes, bags and jewelry. … Also, the pieces are far more interesting than the ones you find in any shopping mall, with each vintage piece telling a story from its own time; a time when people really cared about every stitch woven into their masterpieces. This is a refreshing change from today’s age of mass production and outsourcing that you find with today’s clothing companies. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and always available to assist you in picking out whatever you are looking for. If you are considering purging your closet or adding new pieces, then you are at the right spot. …”


Mother’s Day

By Anusha S., Buffalo Exchange D.C. (Georgetown)

This year I am fortunate enough to spend Mother’s Day not only with my mom, but also with my grandma, who is visiting from Iran. It has definitely been nice having her, and being that she lives 6,500 miles away, I don’t get to see her too often. It has been about 16 years since I have been there myself, so naturally I enjoy asking about ways in which the city she lives (Tehran) has changed over time. Iran is an Islamic Republic, and being so, women are required to cover themselves in public. But that doesn’t stop them from expressing themselves through fashion. With an endless array of colors hanging from the walls in their bazaars, to the beautiful Alborz Mountains, the city of Tehran creates the perfect backdrop for any fashion photoshoot.

Go Ask Kara

By Kara (@GoAskKara), Buffalo Exchange Georgetown

Buffalo Exchange (1)I have been in the process of doing a total closet turn over! I see beautiful clothes all day, every day at my little Georgetown, DC Buffalo Exchange so I am CONSTANTLY trading old clothes for new ones. My plan was to start selling off all of my sweaters and NOT buy anymore. I did not stick to that plan. However, I have mixed in a lot of great pieces for Spring and Summer in all of my many Buffalo Exchange hauls!
