It’s no secret that in Buffalo we love our Bills. Sunday morning feels like Christmas morning as we unite dressed in red, white, and blue. It’s safe to say everyone will be ready to go for game day with their own Bills apparel.

The newish trend of Instagram shops makes grabbing the most unique pieces so easy and so fast. From vintage crewnecks to bleached dyed sweat sets our local thrift accounts (and some shops) are giving us all the 90’s nostalgia.

Here’s how it works: just follow these accounts closely for their next post or inventory drop. Once you find a piece you love just comment sold and…that’s it. Once you give your shipping info and send your payment, you’re literally done. It’s so simple and easy, and best of all you can do your shopping from anywhere-literally whenever you want to – for better or worse. Each account has specific instructions so be sure to check out their bio and highlights for more info on the process.

Pro-Tip: Turn on post notifications for the accounts you love so that you can try to grab a piece before it sells out – and trust us, Bills gear will sell out.
