How long have you been coming to Philly AIDS Thrift? Since 2010.

What’s your favorite thing you bought here?

I bought a two-piece skirt and two piece top—I got it at your old location. I think it might be forties. It’s bright pinkish-red with blue stripes. I hardly ever wear it but I love it when I do get to wear it. It was $10, by the way.

What keeps you coming back to our store?

To see if I can ever top that ten dollar two piece.

What’s the #1 top played song on your iPod?

That’s a hard one…It probably has to be From the Ritz to the Rubble by the Arctic Monkeys.

Do you believe there are aliens out there?

I don’t have any reason to not believe there are aliens out there.

Who was your high school crush?

You know, it’s really not worth saying…

Do you think that black is a color or the absence of color?

It’s a color.

How sure are you?

I’m 99.98% sure it’s a color. If you can wear it like a color, it’s a color.

Lastly, what’s your least favorite movie?

Oh crap…it’s probably one of the few movies I’ve turned off but never finished. It was The Hills Have Eyes and it wasn’t my choice and someone else picked it. It was unnecessarily upsetting.
