What You’ll Need

Before you start, you’ll need to gather your supplies. We found a red sweater at Buffalo Exchange and the rest at the craft store. If you don’t want to purchase a new sweater, you can cut costs by recycling any color sweater from your closet. We spent a total of $30 on this project and about 30 minutes making it.

Buffalo Exchange Resale Shopping

Never Grow Old: The Power of Resale Shopping

By Buffalo Exchange Ventura

­­Buffalo Exchange Ventura customer Johnathan Whalen is a truly remarkable man. At the age of 85, he’s still evolving his personal style and trying out fun new things. He even participated in Peace Corps just a few years back! We sat down with him to find out what he loves about resale shopping and where he gets his style inspiration from.

What are you looking to add to your wardrobe?

I wish I could think of things that I need, but I can’t. I have beautiful suits from years ago – even tuxedos. I have more shoes than Imelda Marcos. I am always looking for a new challenge, though. I just bring out a garment that I have at home and look for something I can complement it with.

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!
