But it’s similar to the annual nominees for Best Picture – while your favorite may not be on the list, it’s still a good snapshot of what’s making an impact at the time. So, whaddaya say we get that turntable spinnin’ and drop the needle? Without further ado, we present the best music of 2016.

If you have an ugly sweater party on your weekend agenda but you’re still fresh out of holiday cheer, our annual DIY ugly holiday sweater is to the rescue! You can always buy a pre-made sweater at your local Buffalo Exchange, but if you want to win the prize for the coolest, craftiest sweater, we recommend making your own. For this year’s sweater, we’ve crafted a festive fireplace. Forget Netflix’s Fireplace For Your Home – this holiday season, it’s all you!
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.
Every six months, we support new local charities through our Tokens for Bags® program. Instead of giving out bags, we give customers the opportunity to donate five cents (the cost of the bag) to a charity of their 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.

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!
With the new season, there are new ways to wear your current clothes! Don’t put away your leather motorcycle jackets just yet—you can wear them all year long. A little layering goes a long way to take your outfit to the next level, whether you want to achieve a certain look or stay warm during those chilly summer nights.
