For curiosity, we dropped by Philly AIDS Thrift in search of Halloween costumes. But it is a reflection of the 80s when AIDs was spelled in the same breath as hopelessness. It may look funky but sad to say, it is dirty and tired.

A really well curated collection of thrift that eliminates the junk. Reasonable prices and the funds support people with AIDS. A must stop for any thrifty queer!

Came here killing time walking around Philadelphia and it was a cool little store. Dvds, records, cds, books and thrift store finds. Friendly staff and good prices. Worth checking out for sure.

Sadly, I was not as impressed as I'd hoped to be. It's an eclectic Goodwill. I'm sure there are treasures to be found, but the whole place smells kind of weird.
