In the great state of Pennsylvania, there are a ton of amazing thrift stores, but there's one that is a must-visit.

It's called Philly AIDS Thrift in Philadelphia, PA.

One website says, "Go ahead. Browse aimlessly. In fact, the Philly AIDS Thrift, which benefits local AIDS organizations, encourages it. The thrift shop - where you'll regularly find sales - features a plethora of items, including clothes, books, antiques, housewares, and knick-knacks."

The thrift shop's website says, "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."

This thrift shop is open from 11 am to 8 pm on Mondays through Saturdays. They close at 7 pm on Sundays.

"With our most recent round of special grants to twenty-three Philly area HIV service organizations totaling $246,000, we have now surpassed OVER THREE MILLION dollars in total donations to date.  Our current total is $3,381,778.40. We couldn’t have done any of this without our wonderful Shoppers, Donors, Volunteers, and Staff," their website also says.

Their website goes on to say, "The best part of Philly AIDS Thrift is the abundance of sales! Generously donated items arrive all day long, and that means we need to move our merchandise fast! So you can always anticipate sweet sales on tons of items throughout the store."

The address for this thrift shop is 710 S. 5th St Philadelphia, PA 19147.
