Thrift Store Thursday

You know you're in Alabama when the magazine sections at the thrift store are labeled Men Magazines and Lady Magazines.

Of course, I'm always checking out the stacks for old copies of Runner's World, but which side should I be checking out? Men like to run and are really muscular and can grow beards. Women like to run too but also have babies and wear skirts. This is so hard! And according to these stacks, men care about money, golf, computers and politics, and women care about hairstyles, celebrity gossip, Oprah and cooking.

Turns out the Runner's World is an equal opportunity magazine at the thrift shop.

If they had a girl on the cover, they made it into Lady Magazines.

If they featured a dude (shirtless or not), they made it into Men Magazines

Because I've already read this issue, I decided to mess with the Alabama thrift store status quo.

There are gonna be some really confused magazine purchasers out there. 

Reminder: go here to enter to win some sweet Proud Runner socks. Unlike the mags, these socks are for men AND women. 

Also, if you are still looking for compression socks, the coupon code YMR25 is good until June 1st for 25% off at Pro Compression


  1. That's awesome!! I love that you switched them!!! Oh the massive amounts of confusion you're gonna cause!!

  2. "Lady magazines" and "Men magazines" hahaha

  3. Very interesting!!! I was considering getting myself a subscription to RUnner's world for my birthday!

    1. I keep waiting for a deal on it, but they must have such a solid base that they don't need to do deals very often. Been looking for over a year and haven't found one yet. Magazines are the best presents because they last all year!

  4. THAT is hilarious! ha! Gotta love our home state!

  5. I wonder who was doing the sorting and if they noticed that it was the same magazine or if they strictly looked at the picture. That's a really funny observation though.

    I don't even think our thrift stores have magazine - it sounds like yours are are way better.
