I am an avid thrifter and rarely buy new clothing, or new/used clothing at boutique prices. Buffalo Exchange is my one exception. I almost always walk out with something treasured at a low cost. I have found great quality, designer brand shoes at affordable prices, and vintage dresses that have been altered to my exact liking. Most of the time they also carry a whole rack of large and extra large sizes, which is appreciated. I love and support their quest to eliminate plastic bags, and have always enjoyed their token system for gifting a non-profit or environmental cause in lieu of using a bag. They also have the option of reselling your worn items for credit or cash, however it is a complete toss up as the outcome usually depends on the unique taste of the Buyer. You may have better luck selling your worn clothing online, as it is very inconsistent. Some times I have tons of items they want, other times nothing. It is still a good option if you like to rotate your wardrobe out throughout the year and are looking to make something out of it before throwing it in a yard sale or donation.

Hunting for clothes at Buffalo is fab, probably because they're super picky about what they take. In the market for new jeans, designer, marked down 95% off because some other beezy wore them for a season -- well you're in luck! They're probably here. And although buying shoes at the Buff kind of grosses me out, because feet, anything I can throw in the washing machine is fair game. Go, hunt, and be merry. Just don't expect you can come in with 8 bags of donation goods and expect them to get jazzed about your A&F tank tops from 1992 -- they're not taking them.

I had a great experience at Buffalo Exchange. I thought all the customer sales people were great. They didn't take all of my clothing, but it's up to their discretion what sells and doesn't in any given season. I also looked at their web-site to see what they actually needed right now, and that's what I brought in. My daughter and I each found a couple of items to purchase also which made for a pretty good trade. I'm giving it 4 stars because of the parking situation--ugh, but in any city, that's what you'll find.

Brought lots of clothes and the chick didnt even take a look at them and said no to the few bags she checked. The person in front of me had good leather jackets and good shoes and didnt take them either. I just wasted my time and gas. Not worth it. If you want to get rid of clothes just donate them.

This place is great! Friendly, genuine staff and some awesome items. It is no your average thrift store, and you will not find less than quality items in here. Some things may cost a bit more, but it is because they are worth it! Style isn't cheap. :-) Found a pair of colorful high top Nikes for my boyfriend last year- they look like thy have a tv test pattern on the side- amazing find, got them for $30! Thanks for the like new $150 shoes at a fantastic price! I have purchased dresses here and never am disappointed. Fun to browse too, and always fun to bring in your own old clothes for cash or credit.

Bringing clothes in to sell to Buffalo Exchange and watching them pick through your belongings is unnerving. They are VERY picky and seldom choose more than one item to buy from you. When they tell you they don't want ANYTHING, it's worse than being picked last in gym class. It's a mix of confusion, humiliation and sadness. WHY must you be so picky, Buff Ex?

I like the thrill of finding a treasure here. It's a nice and clean store that you'd like to spend time finding a good deal. Not all of the clothes and accessories are used, there are some that are new and never been worn. Don't forget to bring a reusable bag, by turning down a plastic bag - you can donate 5 cents to a foundation of your choice.

Good for buying, horrible for selling.
