Getting to know you…

Getting to know you, getting to know all about you!

Name: Jennifer

Do you shop, donate or volunteer?
I work here.

How long have you been working at Philly AIDS Thrift?
Three years.

What keeps you coming back to our store?
Paycheck. Just kidding. There’s great people, it’s fun. There’s always great clothes, great deals. Things come in all the time.

What’s your favorite thing you bought here?
Probably the dress I wore to Black Tie Gay Bingo. It’s from the 50’s and it’s embroidered with metallic thread, and it has fringe on the bottom and it’s orange and yellow and black and it’s very beautiful.

What’s the #1 top played song on your iPod?
Do I have a top one right now? Arch & Point by Miguel.

How do you pass these long summer days?
I do projects. I actually use the weight* to make denim patchwork pieces. I’m having an art show of my denim patchwork pieces at the Red Hook Cafe starting July 25.

*We recycle everything here at Philly AIDS Thrift. Sometimes when we get clothing or fabric that can’t be sold, we sell it by the pound to rag companies. We refer to this as “weight.”

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
I really like Cherry Garcia. But I also really like Phish Food and mint chocolate chip and cookies n cream. I like thinks with chunks of chocolate or marshmallow, but not Rocky Road.

What do you like or dislike most about our fair city?
There’s not enough trashcans. That’s what I don’t like the most. What I do like the most is that this is where most of my friends live!

Who was your high school crush?
I don’t want you to put it on the internet! He was my first crush. But he very well knows…

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Radiant Orchid!
