We've all done it. We buy something and then we either never wear it, or we wear it only a few times. These stores will buy or exchange your gently used items. They are also great places to save a bundle on your next clothing purchase.
The first Buffalo Exchange opened in 1974 in Tucson, Arizona and claims to be the very first store that bought, sold, traded, and took clothing items and accessories on consignment. There are two stores in Greater Phoenix, one in Phoenix and one in Tempe. Inventory includes designer wear, vintage, jeans, leather, basics, and one-of-a-kind items. You'll also find new merchandise and accessories.
Consignment apparel from top name brands and well known designers and upscale items and colectibles for the home. Ladies clothing, accessories, jewelry, household articles and home décor, including art and artifacts. Clothing must be less than two years old, cleaned and on hangers and of better or designer quality.
