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!

A Vintage Buy

By Erin Galt, Buffalo Exchange Sherman Oaks

Buffalo Exchange

I have been a buyer for Buffalo Exchange for five years now, and can say I often remember the customers and their stories as much as the amazing merchandise. May Li and Wayne Okazaki came into the Sherman Oaks location shortly after Wayne’s mother, Helen, passed away at the age of 95. Having never been, they came to Buffalo Exchange, because they could not bear the thought of this fierce and fashionable woman’s wardrobe being destined for the dumpster.

What Are We Thankful For …

By Ana Ayon, Buffalo Exchange Sherman Oaks

BuffaloExchange

As the end of the year begins to approach, our introspective side becomes a bit more active than usual, culminating in Thanksgiving—a holiday in which we are supposed to take a step back from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives and express our gratitude for all the good we have in it. This year has been one of great change for me; I am first and foremost thankful for the unrelenting sense of resilience I’ve had to muster in order to “roll with the punches,” so to speak. I don’t know where I’d be without it and I’m glad it’s here with me. In addition, I am thankful for my family and the friends who have supported and assisted me throughout the trials and tribulations of moving to Los Angeles. Last but not least, I’m thankful for having a job that allows me to juggle the demands of college while simultaneously allowing me to find fashionable clothes on a regular basis. Living the life of a broke college student has never looked so good!

Street Style: Sherman Oaks

Sherman Oaks StyleAlthough the calendar claims fall is right around the corner, here in Sherman Oaks we are combating some “hotter than hell” weather. So be it just natural that the hottest trend we are seeing adorned by all the glorious fashionistas is of the more sultry and Gothic persuasion? Last I heard, black is the last color you want to wear in 100+ degree weather. So how are the ladies rocking the boldest of trends? They are accentuating their color blocked outfits with sheer silhouettes, crystals and crosses dangling from elongated chains, and let us not forget our “studlier” accents. To reference one of the most iconic brooding souls Bob Dylan, let us at the Sherman Oaks Buffalo Exchange help you find the look that “can take the dark out of the nighttime and paint the daytime black.”
