We recently had the pleasure of talking with Angelica Sundae, a hairstylist by day and electrifying drag performer by night. Angelica has been shopping at Buffalo Exchange for fifteen years, first in Las Vegas and currently at BE Manhattan. Read ahead for a Q+A about Angelica’s one-of-a-kind style, love for Buffalo finds and even a bit of fashion advice fit for a queen!
A mix of dark, gothic glamour, Vegas showgirl glitz, and good old-fashioned buffoonery. The idea of being stunningly beautiful and also completely ridiculous is very appealing to me!
I have ALWAYS had luck finding interesting pieces there and I love that I can put together a really great look that doesn’t drain my bank account.
Holidays (Halloween, New Year’s) as well as for events that I produce, such as my show ”Snack Theater” at Chelsea Music Hall in Manhattan.
An extravagant robe and opera-length gloves in every color!
Listen to yourself. If you know your body and you try different silhouettes, you will eventually find not only what looks best on you, but what makes you feel like a confident boss. Confidence is necessary to work any look.
Feeling inspired to add some glitz and glamour into your wardrobe? Take a cue from Angelica Sundae and find fabulous pieces on a budget at your local Buffalo Exchange! Secondhand shopping has never been so chic.

It’s no secret that I have a whole lot of clothes – they live in two closets, dressers and, somehow, always in a pile on the floor. Don’t even get me started on my collection of bags, shoes and accessories! To help me sort through my overflowing wardrobe, I enlisted the help of my boyfriend, Dylan. He picked out my outfits for a week and, as a result, helped me realize that I needed to part with a few of my well-loved pieces and bring them in to Buffalo Exchange to sell!
What I wore: Free People dress with embroidered sleeves, vintage basket handbag, strappy Topshop sandals, Universal Threads mules, Forever 21 earrings
Why he picked it: He knew it was my favorite dress and he also knew I never usually end up wearing the strappy sandals or vintage handbag (spoiler alert: both, while very cute, are also very impractical).
How I felt: I love love LOVE this dress. What I didn’t love were these sandals. After brunch and an afternoon of thrifting, my feet were screaming for comfort. I had to go home and change into these mustard mules. The bag, too, proved to be difficult – it was too delicate for everyday use and, while I love vintage, I am more concerned with function over fashion (at least when it comes to handbags). These ones both went right into the bag for Buffalo Exchange!
What I wore: ASOS floral and zebra print blouse, BDG jeans, Dolce Vita sandals, cheetah print earrings, GAP tote
Why he picked it: I rarely wear jeans and I’ve never worn this blouse. This probably won’t come as a shock, but I often shop for an idealistic future – “Maybe I’ll wear this if I’m at this place at this time and the moon is in this phase.” It’s not realistic and I’m left with an abundance of clothes I never wear – thank goodness I can trade them for store credit Buffalo Exchange! I’d been holding onto this blouse for a special occasion, but Dylan showed me that I don’t need a specific reason to wear an outfit. If I love something, then I should wear it – who knew it could be so simple?
How I felt: I have to admit – I was hesitant to walk into the world in this look. A floral AND zebra print blouse with distressed kickflares, cheetah-print earrings and banded sandals?! At the end of the day, though, this turned out to be one of my favorite looks
What I wore: ASOS flower-striped dress, Universal Threads mules, vintage beaded bag, resin cherry earrings
Why he picked it: This was a hot day (here in Tucson, it stays warm a good chunk of the year), so Dylan paired this cotton dress with backless shoes and a minimal bag. A pragmatic choice that led to a super cute, put-together look!
How I felt: This was such a fun outfit and satisfied my craving for color coordination! It was just another day at the office, but the retro floral dress with the side tie reminded me of a sarong I’d wear on a tropical cruise. V refreshing! Also, I have to give Dylan props for the cherry earring selection. I wouldn’t have paired florals with fruit, but it works so well!
What I wore: Urban Outfitters smock-top, Forever 21 light-wash denim skirt, resin circle earrings, ASOS tiger mules, GAP tote
Why he picked it: Casual Tuesday, anyone? We were in a bit of a rush to get out the door this morning, but this outfit doesn’t show it. A denim skirt paired with a cotton blouse is simple and always stylish. For a bit of fun, Dylan decided to add these tiger print mules I could easily slip on and matching orange and black resin earrings. I was ready for the day in no-time!
How I felt: I love any and all smocking and the denim skirt is a staple of my closet (I have this same skirt in a medium-wash denim). However, my love for fun shoes proved to be incompatible with my achy feet! Although I didn’t have to change footwear mid-day, I think these shoes should go to someone who’ll wear them waaay more frequently, which means they’re going right into the Buffalo Exchange bag!
What I wore: Striped apron dress (brand unknown), navy camisole (brand unknown), ASOS gold bamboo earrings, Dolce Vita Sandals, vintage handbag
Why he picked it: Taking some advice from the times I’ve styled him myself, Dylan wanted to try out a fully neutral look without going monochromatic.
How I felt: While it’s true that all neutrals go together, I wasn’t so sure about this one. For some reason, the beaded bag with bamboo handles and two-strap sandals didn’t quite feel right with the look. I’m definitely still going to hold onto this dress, but I usually reserve it for fall when I can layer it over a black turtleneck, tights and booties – picky, I know. I learned that maybe I should stash this piece away with my fall/winter items. Still, I commend Dylan’s concept of tonal dressing!
What I wore: Forever 21 zebra-print button down, Target denim skirt, Converse high-tops, vintage woven handbag, Forever 21 marbled resin earrings
Why he picked it: Feeling inspired by the 80s revival, Dylan went for a graphic black and white look with a bold pattern. Then, he added the neon green bag for a pop of color.
How I felt: This was fun! I have a ton of animal print in my closet, and this button-down is something I routinely pushed back because I wasn’t sure how I wanted to style it. Who would’ve known all I needed was my dependable denim skirt? This is a great outfit to take me from my 9-5 to happy hour!
What I wore: Free People dress with embroidered sleeves (this time in blue!), Universal Threads Mules, retro belt, blue tassel earrings (brand unknown), vintage beaded handbag
Why he picked it: Another thing about me: when I love something, I buy it in every color I can. Knowing this, Dylan wanted to end the week with something familiar but really jazz it up with metallics, beads, tassels and rhinestones.
How I felt: Great! In retrospect, I feel like I need to invest in a steamer, but wrinkles aside, this is a go-to look! While I was initially unsure of wearing so many sparkly accessories at once, everyone I interacted with today complimented me on how the whole thing came together, to which I gracefully replied, “Thank you, my boyfriend is my stylist.”
All in all, I feel great about this week of outfits. Even though I was a little nervous at the start, it was such a treat to see what my boyfriend really thought about my clothes — not to mention how nice it was to not have to pick out my own outfit every morning! It also helped me realize which items I really don’t need to hold onto (wonderful as they may be!) Now, I’m taking my reusable tote filled with goodies to sell at Buffalo Exchange. If you’re feeling inspired to have your partner, friend or roommate sort through your closet and pick your looks for a week, I say go for it! You’ll probably end up with some great new outfit ideas and a bag full of items to clean out. Your local Buffalo Exchange buys the best of all seasons year round and your closet cleanout could be worth cash or trade to spend on a wardrobe refresh you’ll really love!

Ready to clean out your closet and looking for the best way to sell clothes? Tackling this task is no easy feat, so here’s a handy guide to navigate through your overstuffed wardrobe and into the world of resale fashion! Keep reading for a few tips to easily pare down and sell your past favorites to Buffalo Exchange.
The first step is to Marie Kondo your closet! Ask yourself if you’ve worn it in the past year or if you’re only holding onto it for sentimental reasons (your mom gave it to you, you really liked it but never get around to wearing it, etc). Most importantly, ask yourself if it truly sparks joy for you! If you’re keeping an item under the conditions of losing or gaining weight, magically growing six inches as an adult or being invited to some fantastical special occasion, it may be time to sell it or donate it so that it can spark joy for someone new.
As you pull items out of your closet, the second step is to sort everything into two piles – one to sell and one to donate instead of bringing it to Buffalo. If an item has a small spot that won’t wash out or a hole, you may want to donate it to a local non-profit. Pro Tip: Don’t over-edit your bag of items to sell! Buffalo takes in the best of all seasons, year-round and is always looking for a wide variety of freshly laundered styles in good condition. When in doubt, bring it in! PS If there’s no Buffalo near you or you’re too busy to bring your closet cleanout into the store, try Sell By Mail. Order a kit online, fill it up and drop it off with UPS! Within a few weeks of Buffalo Exchange receiving it, you’ll have extra cash in your pocket or trade to spend.
Woohoo, you made it to Buffalo Exchange! If there are other people waiting to sell, the Buyers may ask you to have a seat or jump in line. When they call you up to the counter, they’ll ask for your ID and phone number. If you’re anxious about your clothing being judged, don’t stress. Buffalo’s Buyers will be happy to take a look at everything you brought and they base their decisions off of styles that are currently selling well for the store, not off a personal judgment call. In order to make educated decisions, Buyers go through a ton of initial training and, even after that, it’s an ongoing learning process. Buyers spend a lot of time researching current styles, talking to customers about what they’re shopping for and going through the store’s inventory to find out what’s selling well, what’s not selling so well and which areas are either lacking or overly full.

Meet Sedona: the electrifying dirty pop group based out of New York City. The band is comprised of five members: Tia on drums, Merilyn on keyboard, Claire on guitar, and Lily on bass with lead singer Sedona at the forefront. Even though the group has a wide array of personal styles, they’re all avid thrifters with an appreciation for vintage gems. It’s little surprise, then, that the group loves shopping at Buffalo! “I’ve shopped at Buffalo for as long as I’ve lived in New York, so four years now,” Claire says. “My entire outfit is from Buffalo Exchange!” Tia adds.
Sedona did their first tour in March of 2019, driving 70 hours across the country in an old church bus to play SXSW and venues in New Orleans, Pennsylvania and their home base of NYC. “We played a bunch of shows. It was beyond fun to travel and perform with a group of inspiring ladies that I’m lucky enough to call my family!” says lead singer Sedona. They returned full of inspiration for new projects. All five members of the band light up when they talk about their plans for the group. “We set aside some time this summer to write together, which was a first for us, and we can’t wait to play more shows.”
Sedona’s next show is at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on Wednesday, August 14th. You can find their music on Spotify, Soundcloud and Youtube and keep up with the band on Instagram and Facebook. If you’re feeling inspired by this band’s catchy tunes and unique personal styling, head to your local Buffalo Exchange to shop some vintage finds of your own!
We recently had the chance to chat with Paris Warren, a longtime Buffalo Exchange shopper and creative freelancer based in New York. In his professional life, he enjoys wearing a number of hats – from stylist to fashion director to magazine editor and more! This approach applies to his personal style as well – “I’m open to wearing anything,” he says. He describes his style as eclectic and loves shopping for unique pieces at Buffalo.
On a day-to-day basis, Paris takes inspiration from the people on the streets of New York and admires well-thought out looks with attention to detail. “It never gets old,” he says of NY street style. He believes in pushing the limits of personal style without sacrificing comfort. “Be true to who you are,” he advises, “and let that resonate with what you wear.”
For summer (especially in humid NYC), Paris’ ideal look consists of biker shorts and a graphic tee – basically something easy and breezy to throw on. He’s all about the layering, though, so he personally can’t wait for fall and winter to come back around. This season, he’ll be frequenting one of NY’s six Buffalo Exchange stores in search of faux fur jackets in a variety of fun colors.
Paris loves wearing pieces from independent designers as well as secondhand finds from places like Buffalo. “A lot of people don’t know anything about Buffalo Exchange,” he says, “but they should take the opportunity. The staff is really nice and goes above and beyond. There’s also a lot of versatility that you don’t see elsewhere and high quality products. They don’t just buy anything – the selection is curated.” His favorite Buffalo find of all time? A vintage Christian Dior jacket that he scored at Buffalo Exchange Houston. “I don’t only look for high-end brands,” he says, “but it’s pretty amazing when you can find a deal like that.”
However you choose to express your personal style, take it from fashion enthusiast Paris Warren: shopping secondhand is the way to go! Grab your cleanout and head to your local Buffalo Exchange to trade it in and shop for some new-to-you finds – you might score the likes of a vintage designer jacket or even just the perfect pair of jeans.

Drumroll, please… we’re happy to announce our latest giving back initiative – Clothing for the Community®! Through this new program, a wide variety of Southern Arizona non-profits can receive large donations of clothing and accessories from our Sell By Mail department to help them fundraise and do even more awesome work in community.
Essentially, non-profits can use these items to host a fundraising $1 sale. Here at Buffalo, we’ll coach them through the process by providing support, advice, local promotion and, of course, a lot of $1 clothing and accessories to sell. Are you a Tucson-area 501(c)(3) non-profit? Send us an email at PR@BufEx.com to let us know you’re interested in becoming a beneficiary!
The first non-profit to benefit from Clothing for the Community® is Ben’s Bells, an organization that teaches individuals and communities about the positive impact of intentional kindness. Shop, save and fundraise for this great cause during their $1 Sale on Saturday, July 20 at 40 W Broadway Blvd. The sale starts at 8am and is cash only.
At Buffalo Exchange, recycling is the name of the game and it’s always been part of our mission to make sure that no clothing goes to waste. That’s why we give customers the chance to donate the items we’re unable to buy to local non-profits at many of our stores and also why we send any items that don’t sell to our outlets in Nogales, AZ and San Antonio, TX before donating them. This Clothing for the Community® program is just one more way to give clothing a second life and support local non-profits in any we can.
Over the past 45 years, we’ve spearheaded a variety of giving back initiatives. Through our annual Earth Day $1 Day Sale, we’ve raised over $717,900 since 1997 for non-profits like The 5 Gyres Institute and The Humane Society of the United States. We also run a Tokens for Bags® program in which we give customers charity tokens with each purchase instead of plastic bags. Yes, you heard it right – you can give back to your community just by shopping at your local Buffalo. Since launching Tokens for Bags in 1994, we’ve kept more than 15.5 million plastic bags out of the environment and raised $778,660 for local charities.

When I think of New York City’s boroughs, I think of diverse cultures, rich history and, well, pizza. Lots of pizza! When my craving for a slice has subsided, I also think of New York style and the unique ways in which individuals express themselves. We caught up with some of our customers at Buffalo Exchange Astoria in Queens to find out what they love about Buffalo, their style tips and their favorite finds over the years.
What Deb loves about shopping at Buffalo Exchange is the friendly staff that helps you out with any and everything. Not to mention that it has inspired Deb throughout the years to try out pieces she wouldn’t normally wear. Deb’s best piece of style advice? Go for it and don’t be afraid to take chances – you just might be surprised how different it looks on you than on the rack! In a word, Deb describes her style as “eclectic”. Her favorite Buffalo find is a Louis Vuitton bag and sequined tiger jacket.
