Buffalo Exchange: The Closet of the Best Friend I Want To Meet
by Sarah Heath
The Buffalo Exchange originated in Tuscon, Arizona circa 1974. The store is a family affair, started by Kerstin and Spencer Block. The couple, both Swedish, thought Buffalo sounded American and Exchange was to the point. Lucky for us Denverites we have a franchise right on the border of downtown.
The Denver store is located on 13th and Grant St. in Capitol Hill, and specializes in buying and selling men and women’s fashion. The place is too funky! There are so many racks full of clothes. For the girls: sweaters, long sleeve shirts, short sleeve shirts, dresses, and racks of skirts and pants along the wall. And all the same sections are there for boys. Shoes, bags, $8 sunglasses, pins and leather, oh my!
I stopped in on a Friday, right after I cashed my paycheck, and I immediately tried on probably ten shirts and dresses and all the men’s sweaters. I never know what to look for when I go, which is incredibly vital to the experience! When I go I’m in the mindset to create my personal iconic style. It’s like dipping into my best friend’s closet, in fact that’s exactly what The Exchange is about. I’m waiting till the weekend to go back in with my gently bruised treasures, the clothes that I bought for full price and only wore once, and trade them for clothes already stocked. Read more

When did retro fashion sneak back into the closet of America’s teens? When my editor approached me with the direct quote, “Sarah you dress about how I’d imagine your mom dressed when she went to high school, but when your mom went to high school they didn’t show up in poodle skirts. I want you to explain that, what’s up with retro fashion?” I’ll admit to a little apprehension…after all, my mother went to high school in the early 1970’s. This happened to be the week of Halloween and I began to realize the point of this article when I showed up as Janis Joplin and everyone wanted to know why I hadn’t worn a costume.
I’m a sixteen-year-old from downtown raised by Quakers and who attended a liberal arts school for junior high. To me this explains everything and I became very excited to turn in a two-paragraph editorial on why I look like how my mom might have looked like in high school. So I decided to explain how I became introduced to the fashions of the years past. Then I realized I have no idea, which is when the research began. Read more
