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.

Keep It Fresh!
Take some fashion inspiration from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and dress up as the Banks Family for Halloween. Get together a few of your friends, pick up some 90s gear from Buffalo Exchange Costa Mesa and be sure to practice the theme song! “In West Philadelphia, born and raised. On the playground is where I spent most of my days…”
Spice for Life
Another take on the Spice Girls from Buffalo Exchange Florida! You really can’t go wrong with this 90s group costume. Bust out some group choreography to really make an impression this Halloween!
To Be or Not to Be
Still don’t know what to be this Halloween? Then take a page out of the old bard’s book and dress as Hamlet or any renaissance character. Find a poofy sleeved shirt for men and be sure throw on those tights! Accessorize by carrying around a skull like we did at Buffalo Exchange Bellingham. Romeo and Juliet also makes a great – but tragic – couples costume.
Channel your American Horror Story fandom into a simple – but effective – Coven look this Halloween. To create these looks at Buffalo Exchange New Orleans, we threw on as much black as possible – dresses, tights, hats and boots – and then posed in front of the genuine Coven house. It may not be quite as easy to find a sweet old mansion if you live outside of NOLA, but guaranteed you can put one of these monochromatic looks together in no time.

Tired of recycling your same old witch or zombie outfits and need a few ideas for creative Halloween costumes this year? Look no further! Whether you prefer whipping your costume up the night before or you like to go for something a little more elaborate, we’ve got tons of inspiration to help you put together your spookiest costume yet.
The 90s Come Back to Life
Anyone who lived through the 90s knows how many fantastically hilarious 90s characters, bands and celebrities there are to replicate via costume: Spice Girls, Coneheads, ET and cartoons like Rugrats, Aaahh!! Real Monsters or The Magic School Bus come to mind. To get in the Halloween spirit, find your favorite throwback show on Netflix, then get costuming.
We love summer, but we have to admit: we’re pretty excited for layers. We threw on some of our favorite fall trends here in Philadelphia for photographer Brandon Hayden. On our back to school shopping list this year? Plenty of retro athleisurewear, Clueless-inspired plaids, camo and denim.
Fall Trends: Feeling Fit
Rolling out of bed and heading to class has never been easier. This season, we’re all about track pants, track jackets, retro sneakers (how about these old-school Air Jordans?!) and classic athletic logo tees. These looks are the 90s all over again and we couldn’t be happier about it. Fair warning, though: if you often use the excuse of, “I forgot my gym clothes at home,” you’re out of luck. Welcome to the fittest fall yet!
It’s safe to say that 90s style is making a huge comeback, especially when mixed with current streetwear for a fresh take on old classics. When we think 90s, we think No Doubt, so we put together a whole host of looks based on one of our favorite musical groups. What are you waiting for? It’s time to dust the Spiderwebs off of your retro wardrobe and start Running to your nearest Buffalo Exchange to pay homage to this iconic time period in fashion.
Rock Steady Princesses
Late 90s style was characterized by punk plaids, tight tanks and parachute pants. No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani served as a huge inspiration for these Rock Steady punk princess looks! To create your own version of these outfits, play around with plaid skirts or blazers, lace-up details and fishnet anything. Top them off with combat boots or platforms, choker necklaces and velvet accessories.
This look incorporates two of our favorite 90s trends – Tommy Hilfiger pieces and camo pants. If you haven’t picked up a pair of camo pants yet, now’s the time! We’ve been seeing them in a variety of bright colors at Buffalo Exchange stores across the US. Complete this look with a fitted mesh tee layered under a brightly colored bralette and kick back on your Sunday Morning!Full Story
