Sellers don't bother – I read the reviews but attempted to sell some items and check out this location. Waste of my time.
Doesn't matter the quality or brand name if it isn't hipster they don't want it.
I'm shocked, I had numerous items of quality including 2 brand new Armani items with tags that they refused.
Apparently if it isn't faded and looks like it came out of your granny's closet, they don't want.
Save the time and energy, go elsewhere.
Needs to be more openminded when buying merchandise – I have tried to sell merchandise to this store twice. Last month I brought in 3 pairs of new addias tennis shoes and was told there was a surplus of tennis shoes in the store?
Today I brought 2 pairs of jeans in the store. They had no holes or tears in them. I was told by the sale clerk that they were a little worn and not slim cut or a darker color? Naturally, they are going to be worn since they are used???
Brought new merchandise and was turned down. Brought in good shape jeans size 12 and was turned down??
I feel Buffalo Exchange needs not be so ridgid when buying mechandise. Not all women can fit in slim cut jeans or want to wear a darker color? Need be more open minded.
Clothes! – I'm glad that there's a BuffEx up the street from me. Selection is good, but since it's smaller than Hawthorne, yadda yadda. One person was a little offputting, but it's bound to happen in this town. Everyone else for the most part is friendly. The men's dressing rooms are not substantial, unlike the women's.
To the girl accusing BE of being racist, maybe you shouldn't bring in generic mall clothes next time.
fun place to shot – i always find something special here and for a low price. it's a great place for retail therapy!! i can find some really unique items here.
sometimes i feel like they look at me before even looking at the clothes i'm going to resell. i guess it's like a job interview-dress to impress they are your client at that point they are shopping from you..but, i still don't really like that aspect of it.
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.
I always find something at this Buffalo Exchange – Though not as heraled as the Buffalo on Hawhthorne, this downtown location seems more dependable to me. I always have good luck both buying and even selling used clothes there. Not super into the new clothes they have for women, but some of the new items for men are nice. Great purses and scarves as well, also hip shoes (like boots and flats) in many many sizes. Jewelry selection is sort of cheesy but if you are into costume jewelry and fake gold, this could be your thing. Employees are nice and not intimidating or too hip to talk to you.
The best store in Portland. – I first discovered this glorious clothing and accessory store a few years back on a romp through the downtown area.Now,I've been to a few cute stores before,and I love them dearly,but I have to say that Buffalo Exchange on Burnside is my absolute top pick.
It's the first place I go to when I'm downtown and I never leave empty handed.
They have a great selection of clothes there,really great fashions and I even found a brand new pair of designer jeans for 42 bucks,that were retailed at 180 dollars! I really recommend shopping here.

Not worth it! – This place would be great if they replaced the IGNORANT staff. They seem to stiff anyone that doesnt have white skin. Maybe they should hire someone ethnic to add some sense and flare to this place! Other than looking like 80's grunge/punk groupies, the staff doesnt have a clue. I brought in a bag of mostly brand new items from places like Banana Republic and Gap, most still had the tags on them but of course since I am not the same skin color as them, they didnt take a single item. Thanks but no thanks. Better selection, service and value across the street at Red Light.
preventing me from running around unclad – Buffalo functions as my closet. I'll run in if there's something I need, and I'll take clothes I'm no longer wearing there. Everything is well priced, great condition, organized--and it's rare that I leave empty-handed. Fun stuff, well made, seasonal...and they support others in need.
And their biggest asset: the staff is friendly (they all remember my name, even if I haven't been in for a while), professional, clear, honest if you ask 'does this work?', and upbeat.
