Howdy, Tucson! Buffalo Exchange is stocking up for spring and summer and we want your closet cleanout! We’re currently looking for warm-weather pieces like dresses, tank tops, shorts and women’s T-shirts. If you have clothes more fit for fall and winter, bring them in, too – we buy all seasons, year round! For the fellas, we’re especially on the hunt for great jackets and sweaters. One more thing: don’t forget the footwear like canvas sneakers, espadrilles and sandals for men and women. Your closet cleanout could turn into cash or trade to spend on your new spring look!

It’s no secret that southwestern styles are everywhere these days. Fringe, leather, concho belts, and chunky turquoise rings, are no longer a niche look, and have made it to the runways. Here in Tucson we have always celebrated southwestern style, and are overjoyed to see cowboy boots on socialites and squash blossoms in magazine editorials.

It is another bright and sunny day here at our Speedway & Campbell location as Tucson gets closer to the blazing summers our city is loved for. And yet, there she was, Enid, a regular at our store, shopping her heart away. Nothing screams “summer lovin’ girl” more than yellow rolled up chinos and leopard print Sperrys. Enid pulls fashion inspiration right from her backyard, from the bright florescent sunsets to the native southwest heritage of our homeland. If Enid were to put a label on her sense of style it would be “ugly folklore”. She’s been shopping at Buffalo Exchange all her life she says—always keeps it loyal and funky. Her favorite Buffalo find has to be her leopard print Sperrys she rocks on the daily.
Peace and love,

While the rest of the country is enduring April showers, Tucson is getting a head start on May flowers. Here in the southwest, the weather is almost unrealistically beautiful — the sun is shining, the bees are buzzing, and the roses are blooming. Each day as we step outside the breeze blows in a longing for that perfect summer day. You know the day–with a combination of nostalgia for the endless, wild summers of your childhood, and every photo you’ve seen of 50s bathing beauties. It’s also a day of picturesque picnics, rolling in the grass, vintage sundresses, and laughing with friends. Feeding the ducks and spending every moment outside from sunrise to sunset. Looking ahead to the oppressive heat of Tucson’s real summer, we decided that today would be the day!

Hidden in the semi-small city of Tucson are Molly and Carl Johnson. Your average happily married couple brings awe-inspiring couples costumes once a year (and sometimes more) to the streets of the desert. Mostly homemade or random pieces put together, this couple says no to the prepackaged costume and yes to the creative craft of DIY. We asked them for an inside look at the ultimate costume duo.

Halloween gives us the chance to be anyone or anything for a night! Share your creativity with friends and party-goers rather than dying all-night in a mask. Need more convincing why masks are a bad idea for Halloween, let us share with you:
Today we mourn the passing of Grace, official office cat, dirt roller and chair scratcher of Buffalo Exchange. Gracie was rescued from the Humane Society as an adult cat (1-2 years of age) in 1998. She has welcomed many faces over her 15 years of cat service. Her petite size belied her big personality and spunky nature. Her love for laying on printers and desks was unwavering. Her final weeks were spent sun bathing on the porch of her favorite office while passerby’s gave her the ultimate belly rub.
She will be greatly missed and we are so thankful for the time she has spent us with.
We love you Gracie, but you already knew that.
