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.
There are plenty of great finds here. The women's clothes are colorful. The staff does the best they can when it's busy. It can get very cramped on weekends. There is practically no outside air. It gets very stuffy. I wasn't sure if it was the unwashed merchandise, the store upkeep (they don't clean thouroughly so neat freaks beware), or the crowd, but I highly recommend washing your clothes at least twice when you get home. If you're willing to suffer for your find it's worth it.
