Go Green for the Holidays

Selling the clothing and accessories you’re no longer wearing is a great way to earn a little extra cash for your holiday shopping. You can also save money by taking the in-store trade and putting it towards our fun and quirky stocking stuffers or a look for your next holiday party. Yes, that’s right – you just might be able to score a whole new outfit without spending a dime.

Plus, if you’re looking for a sustainable alternative to the mall this December, shopping and selling at Buffalo Exchange is a great way to go green. When you resell your clothes, you’re doing your part to reduce clothing pollution and waste. Every Buffalo Exchange sponsors local nonprofits through our Tokens for Bags® programs, meaning you get to help out the local community just by shopping. Now that’s some instant holiday spirit.

What We’re Buying

Buffalo Exchange is currently looking for adult-sized men’s and women’s cold-weather wares in excellent condition. Think sweaters, jackets, jeans, tees and button-ups, layering pieces, boots and warm hats – and don’t forget the festive holiday sweaters! We buy the best of all seasons, all year long, so if you have a current, high quality summer piece in excellent condition, throw that in the bag too.

If you’re not sure what to sell when you clean out your closet, keep in mind the golden rule: when in doubt, bring it in! We buy everything from fun and funky pieces and vintage to everyday staples. Our buyers will be happy to take a look at everything you have and walk you through the process.

How to Sell

When you come in, a buyer will look through all of your items and make selections based on style, condition and store needs. If they think any of your items will sell in the store, they’ll assign them a retail price. From that price, you’ll receive 50% in store trade or 30% in cash the same day you sell.

Buffalo Exchange Seals

Seal of Approval: Pacific Marine Mammal Center

By Christina Hebets, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Ever seen a sea lion and thought, “Dang, that is the cutest thing ever”? Yeah, us too. That’s why we feel so lucky to be sponsoring the Pacific Marine Mammal Center (PMMC) through our Tokens for Bags® program. Instead of giving out plastic bags in our stores and contributing to environmental pollution, we give out charity tokens that customers can donate to one of three local non-profits.

At Buffalo Exchange Fullerton, customers have the chance to help out adorable seals and sea lions just by shopping! If you often find yourself wondering about these cute little creatures, then you’re in luck. Here are some fun facts about them from the leader in their conservation – Pacific Marine Mammal Center!

History of Pacific Marine Mammal Center

Buffalo Exchange little seal

Did you know that the sea lion conservation movement in California started with one guy on a beach? Jim Stauffer was a life guard back in 1971 when he was approached by a little girl on the beach that told him about a sick sea lion she had found. Jim ended up taking the pup to the vet and nursing it back to health at his house. After this happened a few more times, he created the Pacific Marine Mammal Center with the help of just 3 volunteers! It became the first marine mammal rehabilitation center in California.

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!
