PhillyAIDSThrift@Giovanni’s Room is now open!
C’mon in and check us out.
Monday to Thursday: 11am to 8pm
Friday & Saturday: 11am to 9pm
Sunday: 11am to 7pm
To make a one-hundred-day-long story short, Philly AIDS Thrift is VERY proud to announce that we are now the new proprietors of Giovanni’s Room.
These early days will be more along the lines of sneak peeks, and a work-in-progress, but we WILL be open for business as we get the store in shape and fully stocked. Then we will have a Grand Opening weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 10 to 12th, coinciding with OutFest weekend, as we unveil the finished version (it will never be “finished” of course) of what we’re calling PhillyAIDSThrift@Giovanni’s Room!

Welcome to Playing Favorites, wherein local shopping and fashion gurus provide their hidden retail gems—those unique stores around Philly that we might not all know about. Cue the Beatles: We’re about to get a little help from our friends.
For an urban explorer like Streets Dept’s Conrad Benner—a photo blogger who braves crumbling drywall, sketchy floorboards, and chance encounters with ghostly apparitions to get those great shots of Philly’s abandoned buildings—it’s all about the thrill of the hunt. So when Benner told us his favorite Philadelphia shopping haunts include a labyrinth-like book store and a bulk vintage warehouse, we were all, “Sounds about right.”
#6 Philly Aids Thrift
I mean this is a no brainier. I’ve been going to this place for years, since I lived in South Philly, and it’s only expanded and gotten better over the years. A fantastic selection of vintage housewares (I think every plate I have is from here) as well as clothing, art, and even books.
And to top it all off, your money goes to a great cause. Absolutely zero buyer’s remorse associated with shopping at Philly AIDS Thrift.
