Embracing Individuality: Hannah Gill Talks Fashion and Music

By Jessica Pruitt, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Hannah Gill has a powerful, sultry voice that is wise beyond its 19 years and her band, Hannah Gill and The Hours, has a nostalgic feel that we just can’t get enough of. Following the release of their EP, The Water, she and her band have been touring the country, playing in cities across the US and hitting up Buffalo Exchanges along the way. We gave Hannah a $200 shopping spree to see what she could do and talked to her about fashion, music and her band.

How did you get started singing?

I was always singing during my younger years, but I really got started back in middle school. I used to refuse to join choir because I didn’t sound like the high sopranos. My voice was low, so I thought that meant it was bad. It wasn’t until 7th or 8th grade that I heard people like Amy Winehouse on the radio and they changed my whole perception of what a female voice is supposed to sound like. That’s when I really began to own it.

Everyday Charity: Giving Back by Shopping

By Amelia Gotobed, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Here at Buffalo Exchange, we believe that giving back should be part of your daily routine. Besides helping cut down on clothing waste in general, we’ve brought that philosophy into our stores by eliminating plastic bags and offering our customers the opportunity to donate 5 cents in place of a bag to a local non-profit instead. Doing your good deed for the day has never been so easy!

We care about having a positive impact on the communities we operate in and empowering our customers to make a difference right in their own backyard. In New York, customers are helping to support the Lower East Side Ecology Center every day, just by shopping with us!

If you’ve been to the Buffalo Exchange in Chelsea, then you might’ve spotted me behind the register bidding farewell to some really great pieces right before they leave the store. In other words, I’m a cashier.
