I recently visited Buffalo Exchange, a thrift shop in Georgetown where clothing and accessories are bought, sold and traded locally by store customers. The store offers an array of unique pieces, including clothing, shoes, bags and jewelry. All of the clothes are organized by size for your shopping ease and there are lots of dressing rooms so you don’t have to wait in line to try on the beautiful pieces you pick at the store. Also, the pieces are far more interesting than the ones you find in any shopping mall, with each vintage piece telling a story from its own time; a time when people really cared about every stitch woven into their masterpieces. This is a refreshing change from today’s age of mass production and outsourcing that you find with today’s clothing companies.
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and always available to assist you in picking out whatever you are looking for. If you are considering purging your closet or adding new pieces, then you are at the right spot. Check out their locations… Maybe there is one in your neighborhood 😉
