This nationwide consignment-cum-thrift store aims to reuse and recycle one-of-a-kind fashions. Supply and demand dictates the ever-changing stock, which usually consists of higher-end vintage, designer basics, evening wear, shoes, and accessories. With the store’s reasonable prices and items usually in excellent condition, it’s likely you won’t look like you rolled out of the thrift store.
You can also bring in your former-favorite clothing and accessories, which the good people at Buffalo Exchange will buy from you and sell back to the public. The buyers are discriminating, so don’t bother trying to sell unless your old duds are in great shape and are still likely to be stylish in someone’s mind.
