    If you're into recycling you'll like Buffalo. They buy and sell young, cool clothes and usually have a good variety of woman's and men's clothes. They don't tend to have a huge shoes selection though.

    The best Buffalo Exchange in the USA can be found in Austin. The selection of vintage concert tees is amazing + the staff are incredibly friendly!

    Unless your clothes are in immaculate condition or very unusual, usually the buyers won't take them. Denim is always passed over, but they pay well for shoes!

    Awesome selection of gently used clothes at bargain prices. Also there's often designer shoes, so don't forget to scour that section for deals!

    Don't plan on trying to sell clothes here unless they're name brand or very unique. The buyers tend to be very picky with their selection as so many people try to sell their clothes.

    A fashionable thrift store with its own distinct urban style! I've found their sweater collection to be pretty good.

    It's not a thrift shop. Therefore, they usually just don't take everything. They avoid things you can easily find at goodwill or savers and anything that's old that people don't want. Sorry about it!

    The best costume store for the price and the quality. Also if you dig through the clothes a bit, you will find some expensive designers' clothes as well.

    This place is cool for hats and jeans... They are a bit snobby when it comes to selling your clothes... So get ready.,..

    Always opt to go plastic-less! Take your clothes without a bag and donate 5 cents to your fave charity!!

    There are some really upscale shirt brands--take the time to look! Shirts that I KNOW usually sell for $100, I got for $12.50.

    If you want to sell, go early in the morning, as soon as they open if possible. Otherwise expect to wait and wait and wait...

    Don't bother attempting to sell clothes. Why wait in a long line to have a bag full of clothes rejected? They are EXTREMELY picky, so if you aren't a super hipster, don't bother.

    Opt to take your newly purchased clothes without a bag and instead donate to one of three local non-profits selected by the store. Read more
