Fab Shoes at an Awesome Price? Buffalo Exchange!

It’s no secret that I’m a thrifty shopper. A large portion of this blog is built on my principle of never paying full price, but always looking like did. While being frugal is the name of my shopping game, I haven’t always been able to apply my “get it on sale” motto to shoes. I wear a size 10, like every other women in the Metro Atlanta area, and find it hard to buy quality shoes at a reasonably discounted rate. Well, that was my story until I was introduced to Buffalo Exchange.

If a thrift store and Urban Outfitters had a baby it would be Buffalo Exchange. The reason why this vintage/consignment store is so near and dear to my heart is because of its shoes selection. Without fail, I have scored a fabulous pair of shoes each and every time I’ve set foot in the store.

On my first trip I was actually selling some of my items. While waiting for the attendant to survey my goods I spied the cutest pair of taupe wedges. They were a whooping $13. Before what I brought to sell was sorted and selected I had already purchased the wedges.

Honestly, I thought this shoe luck was a one time thing. I was certain there was no way I would find another pair, and in my size I might add. It just couldn’t be. I was wrong!

On my next trip I was, again, selling some items (these trips were months between each other). This time I went straight to the shoe section. My eyes caught a glance of a fly pair of peep top boots, and for $10! Sold! After this amazing score I began to think that my shoe finds were not luck. Could they be a day in the life of Buffalo Exchange? Before I could come to a concrete answer there was one more test.

Instead of, as before, waiting months between my next visit, I decided to go back within weeks. In my mind there was no way there would be another pair of shoes that fit my fancy. Yep, wrong again! Not only did I find more footwear but I hit the boot jackpot! A black pair of genuine leather Bussola riding boots, never worn tags still on, for $26.50 (faints)! That buy, my dears, sealed the deal! Buffalo Exchange is now my go-to for fabulous shoes!

Do you ever have difficulty finding shoes that fit your style and wallet? What are some of your go-to shoe stores?
