Buffalo Exchange Tokens for Bags program

Tokens for Bags® Charities Fall 2016

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.

Mother’s Day

By Anusha S., Buffalo Exchange D.C. (Georgetown)

This year I am fortunate enough to spend Mother’s Day not only with my mom, but also with my grandma, who is visiting from Iran. It has definitely been nice having her, and being that she lives 6,500 miles away, I don’t get to see her too often. It has been about 16 years since I have been there myself, so naturally I enjoy asking about ways in which the city she lives (Tehran) has changed over time. Iran is an Islamic Republic, and being so, women are required to cover themselves in public. But that doesn’t stop them from expressing themselves through fashion. With an endless array of colors hanging from the walls in their bazaars, to the beautiful Alborz Mountains, the city of Tehran creates the perfect backdrop for any fashion photoshoot.

The great Airstream trailer that’s been making its way around the country was banned from parking in front of the Washington, D.C. stores. So, how do you do a trailer tour without a trailer?

Style File: D.C. (14th Street)


Temperatures are dropping in the nation’s capital, but we’re finding warmth in cozy layers. Vintage-inspired prints, oversized fits and lots of textures are key looks this winter in D.C. Our customers and staff love mixing retro pieces with current trends to create styles that are uniquely their own! Shearling and blanket capes have become a staple on our racks. This winter, high fashion is going minimal and street style is packing on the gaud.

Street Style: Washington DC

Buffalo ExchangeSpring is in the air and the cherry blossoms have inspired a plethora of stylistic takes on the flora/fauna spring trend.  Ninety’s bold polka dots and grunge inspired daisies and sunflowers brighten up color palettes while some are still wearing those darks and neutrals we loved so much throughout winter.  With the onset of humid, summer-like temperatures during the day and cool breezy evenings, mixed media sweaters and jackets are a must.  Pairing stockings with shorts and skirts has become a city wide it-girl look.  With so many festivals and outdoor activities, spring time in D.C. is highly enjoyable for the local and tourist alike.  Here at Buffalo we have the pleasure of not only observing both but housing the right digs for local and visiting fashion fanatics.
