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!

Meet Our Customer: Sasha Ramirez

By Buffalo Exchange Long Beach

Sasha Ramirez is a regular customer here at the Long Beach Buffalo Exchange. She has been shopping with us for over two years and is most recognizable for wearing all pink all the time! She describes herself as a “cool version” of Marcia Brady and takes her style inspiration from Priscilla Presley and Twiggy. She is an avid thrift shopper and vintage collector. She loves to shop at Goodwill, the Long Beach local favorite La Bamba, and, of course Buffalo Exchange. Her favorite Buffalo score was a vintage 60s house-printed romper. Currently she is shopping for cute printed shorts and rompers for summer.

THAT’S SO SOLANGE…

Buffalo Exchange Long Beach

Employees Chaz Dennis and Kym Williams and Customer Jarae Holieway show us the best of their Solange inspired style!

Buffalo ExchangeWe are obsessed with Solange and her newly adapted afro-centric style. From the mixing of tribal and ethnic prints to eclectic jewelry, head wraps and long braids. With Solange being one of the more popular celebrities to explore afro-centric style, she is inspiring fashion lovers around the world to experiment as well. The look is highly inspired by Darlene and Lizzy Okpo of William Okpo. Their use of bold textiles and prints with well-tailored silhouettes adorns her head to toe in the “Loosing you” video. Also infusing designers like Loin and Cloth, TART, Givenchy, Diane Von Furstenberg, Kenzo, J Crew and Balenciaga, she is head to toe perfection! We HEART it!

Street Fashion: Long Beach

Long Beach StyleIs it still Summer?? It sure feels like fall still hasn’t fallen upon us. In the LBC, everyone is accessorizing with fun jewelry and thin layers, since we can’t bust out our heavier fall fashions just yet. Women are wearing lighter leather jackets and fuzzy sweaters with multiple rings, bracelets and necklaces; printed pants and animal prints are mixed and matched and flying off of our racks. Men’s tank tops are doing well all year long, throw a flannel or thin button-up over it and it’s perfect for the weather. Men and Women are rocking jewelry, jean shorts and snapbacks; brights and neons are worn as statement pieces with neutral colors and simple basics. Long Beach is all about dressing comfortably while showing off some fresh fashion! Full Story
