We sat down with longtime Buffalo Exchange shopper and journalist Christian Portilla to talk about her personal style and her life in South Florida. She writes freelance for the Miami Herald and Miami New Times and runs her own website, RoamFreeWrites.com. Find out why she loves shopping resale and her favorite spots to visit in Hollywood, Florida!
What do you love about Florida – and Hollywood in particular?
The Hispanic community has played an essential role in my development as a human and a professional. Miami is unique: you can’t get a Cuban coffee – or “colada”, as we call it – for 75 cents anywhere else and we have the best “pastelitos” and “croquetas” in the world. In Hollywood, local shops and small businesses are really starting to take to the area and build community. I’m excited to see how it continues to grow. Hollywood also has an amazing beach that’s my go to spot to catch some waves.
Do you have any other favorite spots to visit in the Hollywood area?
Besides Buffalo Exchange and the beach, Hollywood is home to the Yellow Green Farmers Market. Many of us Miamians drive up to visit. It’s only open Saturday and Sunday, but they have incredible finds and lots of vegan options for people like me who eat a plant-based diet.
Hey Gents! Clean out your closet and bring in your past faves to Buffalo Exchange for cash or in-store credit on the spot! We’re looking for excellent fall and winter styles, including sweaters, jackets, denim, shoes and accessories. We love everyday basics, current trends and designer as well as great vintage and unique items. Don’t forget that we also buy the best of all seasons, all year round.

What do you get when you’re a music fan AND a stat nerd? 66 music “Best Of”s distilled to one consensus list to rule them all.
There are, of course, drawbacks to cobbled-together selections like this, what with their common denominator-ness. But it’s similar to the annual nominees for Best Picture – while your favorite may not be on the list, it’s still a good snapshot of what’s making an impact at the time. So, whaddaya say we get that turntable spinnin’ and drop the needle? Without further ado, we present the best music of 2016.
PINEGROVE – CARDINAL
This album made it onto 26% of Best Of lists and 3 Top Ten lists.

If you have an ugly sweater party on your weekend agenda but you’re still fresh out of holiday cheer, our annual DIY ugly holiday sweater is to the rescue! You can always buy a pre-made sweater at your local Buffalo Exchange, but if you want to win the prize for the coolest, craftiest sweater, we recommend making your own. For this year’s sweater, we’ve crafted a festive fireplace. Forget Netflix’s Fireplace For Your Home – this holiday season, it’s all you!
What You’ll Need
Before you start, you’ll need to gather your supplies. We found a red sweater at Buffalo Exchange and the rest at the craft store. If you don’t want to purchase a new sweater, you can cut costs by recycling any color sweater from your closet. We spent a total of $30 on this project and about 30 minutes making it.
Every six months, we support new local charities through our Tokens for Bags® program. Instead of giving out bags, we give customers the opportunity to donate five cents (the cost of the bag) to a charity of their choice. Since 1994, we have raised over $656,798 for thousands of local nonprofit organizations through our Tokens for Bags® program, saving 13.1 million bags from polluting the environment.
