Owner of new Hip & Thrifty is a YouTube sensation as a Katy Perry double

After we recently discovered some interesting details about the past of one of Passyunk’s new business owners – mob ties – we decided to check into another.

Kelli Mandruk, owner of the Hip & Thrifty women’s store that opened this weekend at 1810 E. Passyunk Ave., spent time as a Katy Perry double for the YouTube channel Key of Awesome. This parody of California Gurls has gotten more than 43 million views!

We’re starstruck!
