The best part of Philly AIDS Thrift is the abundance of sales! Generously donated items arrive all day…
Welcome to Philly AIDS Thrift
Philadelphia AIDS Thrift is incorporated in Pennsylvania as a non-profit business. We are also a federally recognized 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization (thanks IRS!). Our goal is to sell the lovely, useful, interesting, amusing, and sometimes mysterious items that generous people donate to our thrift store and then distribute the proceeds to local organizations involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
We always welcome new volunteers. Make a difference while having fun — find out how!
America’s oldest LGBTQ & Feminist bookstore includes something for everyone. We’re just the most charming and unique store in Center City.
