Can you believe we opened our first Portland store 20 years ago?! We’re thrilled to be celebrating two decades in the Hawthorne neighborhood with our employees and customers. We took a moment to go through a few fun throwback photos; take a peek at them and check out the 20th anniversary party we have planned for July 23, 10am–7pm!
Every six months we support local charities through our Tokens for Bags® program. Shoppers are encouraged to accept a token instead of a bag for purchases and we donate five cents (the cost of the bag) to a charity of the customer’s choice. Since 1994, we have raised over $656,798 for thousands of local nonprofit organizations through our Tokens for Bags® program, saving 13.1 million bags from polluting the environment.

Buffalo Exchange Hawthorne associate manager Jessica takes us on a tour of her closet and gives us her take on personal style. Jessica has worked for Buffalo Exchange for three and a half years and loves the company’s ethos of constant growth and personal responsibility. Over the past few years, her wardrobe has evolved as much as she has!
Woman’s Day Magazine mentioned Buffalo Exchange in “Save on Back-to-School Shopping” on July 15, 2015: “…Kami Gray, a professional stylist in Portland, Oregon, suggests resale shops like Buffalo Exchange … ‘Kids become more clothes-conscious at this age, but buying brand-new, expensive items isn’t economical or practical when your child is still growing,’ says Gray. ‘Buying resale gets them the brands they want at an affordable price, and they can trade in their outgrown clothes for some extra cash.’ …”
We had two future Buffalo Exchange shoppers with amazing style spotted at our Portland (Hawthorne) location.

One of our most loquacious regulars, Dirk Jackson is a native of Tacoma, Wash. Buffalo Exchange appeared on his radar when he moved to Seattle where he was a working musician for many years. But it wasn’t until he relocated to Portland 14 years ago that he became a regular shopper and seller. “I have expensive taste and I’m very picky, but as a musician I couldn’t really afford that,” says Jackson of the initial appeal of shopping at Buffalo Exchange.
