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!

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.

Buffalo Exchange (5)The Buffalo Exchange 40th Anniversary Tour took a fun little turn yesterday. 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? The Logan Circle store showed how.

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

BuffaloExchange

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.

Fashion Apocalypse

Since the world may end today, it’s time to admit our fashion faults. We all have those moments where we look back at old photos and make an “Oh dear…” face in astonishment at our stylish selves. We pat ourselves on the back with congratulations to the clothing we now own, only to have that “Oh dear… ” face later down the road at today’s outfit. So while we’re living in the moment, let pay homage to our past fashion apocalypse.
