i went there the other day to sell my clothes that i didnt even wear and i wanted extra cash. Last time i went there a chick looked threw my clothes and picked some out but this time it was a guy i was a little sceptical because both genders might of had different opinion on my cothes. My brands were roxy i had a dress and i didnt even wear it at all! it was a present so ofcourse it did not have a tag and i had other items but i was very surprised when the guy did not choose any of my clothes! i was pretty bummed and i thought to myself if it was a girl she would of gotten some items but getting none at all? what a waist of time.
Hit or Miss...... – What do you expect when you go into a thrift store. It really is hit or miss, but still a place I go to sell my clothes. There have been times when I have walked in and found many things I like and others where I swear I will never go back. I would def check this place out though--see what you think.
Amazing. – So i just got back from going there the first time. It was amaaaaaaazing. I bought a pair of brand new true religions, a free people tank, a knit hat, a sweater from silence and noise, and a slouchy t shirt from bdg. My brother bought 3 pendleton flannels, a pairs of jeans from lucky, and like 7 tee shirts. Together we spent only 300$! The service was fantastic, pretty organized, and amazing clothes. Im never shopping any where else!!! Thank you buffalo exchange!
Be patient when looking... – I usually go to The Buff in Sherman Oaks and I always find at least a couple items. They carry everything from Target brand items to high end designer. They are extra picky when buying key items I found they always take are purses, dresses and basically worn once shoes. At times when they don't take my stuff I usually come back within a month or so and they end up taking an item they make have passed on. I always have items I buy from the store dry cleaned before wearing which I recommend...
Whack – They wouldn't take my brand new phat farm clothes!!?! is you crazy??? ITS PHAT FARM.. LOL. Phat farm is pretty played out though
Not quite a vintage boutique, not quite a thrift store: Chic clothes on these racks are the coolest castoffs around. – In Short
The first Buffalo Exchange opened in 1974 in Tucson, Arizona, and has since become a famous-label junkie's delight. The eclectic inventory is built by loyal customers who bring in former favorites from their own closets to sell or trade. A constant turnaround of lightly worn men's and women's clothing and accessories keeps the bargain-hunting ground fertile for finds from the likes of Kate Spade, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and others.
hard, but cheap finds – I'm too big on vintage shopping, but I frequented this store because my friend would go there often. Usually, you have to look pretty hard and be pretty imaginative to find something worth purchasing. But I did buy this adorable (though pretty worn-out looking) purse with mushrooms on it for $5. Not too bad... also I bought this plain, black sweater there for $3. Though I can't stand the smell of the place, the purchases were worth the suffering.
SCAM – This store bought hardly any of my merchandise and then asked if I wanted to DONATE it to them. That wasn't really the point of my going in there to SELL my clothes, but looking around I could tell that a lot of people had DONATED their clothes because the store was full of JUNK. Sure there are a few items that you may be lucky to find sorting through all the other junk. I also get severe allergies everytime I go into this dump. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, it's too much trouble to find anything worthwhile and they don't like buying clothes. Take your clothes somewhere else to sell, that is my recommendation.
Shadiness – I find it very shady that my poor review of this horrific store was erased... not surprised though, this store is just as shady.
Great selection, many cheap items – I find delightful deals here like Antik jeans for $100 (those are $300+ new and this still had tags). T-shirts do seem to be extra expensive but many are vintage-y and much better made (nicer fabrics, designs, etc.) than your standard Fruit of the Loom. They have a wide variety of stuff and generally pretty good shoes, though obviously use your judgement. They also have a cute selection of fun trinkets and toys.
All in all, great place and a must if you visit LA or live here.
