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!

Buffalo Exchange MN customer Joe Cole

Meet Our Costumer: Joe Cole

By Buffalo Exchange Minneapolis

Joe Cole has been a regular at Buffalo Exchange Minneapolis for the past four-five years. When he isn’t serving at Parella or playing music, he is on the hunt for his next favorite item. He has always loved clothing and shoes, but attributes his main interest in fashion to his good friend, Max. His style is ever-changing; it ranges from styles inspired by street fashion to suits, depending on his mood, of course. He doesn’t have a favorite brand; just appreciates good clothing and the ability to have fun with clothes. Joe’s favorite item of the moment is the Michael Kors blazer he is sporting in this photo shoot. As a tall gent at 6’5” he has always struggled to find a good pair of pants, but he does advise men to “do yourself a favor, and find a fitted pair of pants.” Cole’s fashion/life advice: “Dress for yourself, not for others. If you’re cool with wearing sweatpants every day, that’s chill.”

40th Tour: Minneapolis

Buffalo Exchange (2)

Buffalo Exchange’s marvelous Airstream Land Yacht stopped in Minneapolis and featured a varied selection of western and vintage wear and gear. It was an honor to have our company’s founder , Kerstin Block, celebrating with us all-day! We were joined by some of our beloved regulars, Buffalo Exchange fans who came especially for the occasion, and curious passersby who stopped in just to see what we were up to! We welcomed everyone with fantastic donuts from a local favorite, and offered our shoppers everything from crocodile boots to western shirts, and belt buckles to vintage dresses. Grace G., a self-proclaimed Buffalo Exchange super fan, drove an hour and a half with her friends just to come to the event. Another veteran shopper, Katie L., had the date saved on her calendar for a month! All day long, customers stopped by to shop and let us know what the company means to them, and how Buffalo Exchange has played a part in their lives. The day was an absolute blast, a big success, and here’s to forty more great years!

BuffaloExchange

A new artist, Daniel Green  has begun to display his photography at our Minneapolis location! His photography draws inspiration from other worlds full of creatures, beasts, characters and things that have yet to exist. Daniel does all of his own set and costume design for each shoot, which often includes building an abstract creature from unlikely household objects. He will often buy clothing for his photo shoots from Buffalo Exchange and has even used some of the staff as models! He is a great up-and-coming talent that we are proud to display!
