it is weird that companies advertise stuff they don't have. that's a pretty bad disconnect between marketing and operations, right?
but ebay has no such disconnect. it's like I go there and say hey world, show me what you GOT! in my weird size. and then I can be dressed.
josie's shoe size is up to 9 now (good lord) so I bought her some really great looking nike running shoes for $25. that made me realize me own running shoes are not as supportive as they used to be, they have some real miles on them, so I bought myself some asics. I bought 11s this time. I am between 10.5 and 11. Well okay... I sometimes think my left foot is 11, right foot is 10.5. For most shoes I don't care but I wasn't sure on running shoes if I wanted a nice "my feet are hugged" feeling, or "I've got plenty of toe room" feeling. I will report back after I get some miles on the size 11s.
I have a new gap wool sweater with colorful stripes that I've worn once a week since I got it.
ethos leggings that I bought as part of my search for the perfect leggings. qualifications are 1) size tall 2) side pocket for my phone 3) light colored, so I can run in the dark and not get hit by a car. well... or a car will at least see me as I'm being run over. Anyway I'd never heard of this brand before and they could be thicker but they meeting the 3 qualifications and I'm happy!

and the silliest thing... I found some lululemon leggings in my size for only $25. when I got them in, I didn't think they were high rise enough. so I posted them on facebook marketplace and sold them for $35. not something I'd make a habit of, but hey... gets around the idea that there's no returns, right?
