    She sounds very...special.

    I think it really depends on your relationship with her.

    If shes a distant in-law that you dont really have much to do with. Then let you DH deal with her

    If you want to keep them you can either be blunt and say "no i paid for them" or you can lie and say you gave/sold them to a friend who really needed them.

    Or you can simply ignore her and go about your normal business.

    Good luck!

    I'd tell her where to go and how to get there! What a nut case!

    You paid $220!!! It's not like she loaned them to you, you paid for them.

    I agree with msmummy. If you were happy for her to have the clothes back, she should pay you back what you paid her, plus your cleaning and storage costs.
    Also agree with janedoe, you give stuff to family, you dont make them buy it. Something wrong with that woman!!

    So much rudeness! First to expect she can just take them back. Secondly, to not even explain but just expect you to read her mind. Thirdly, to expect them for free, and fourthly to be so insensitive to comment on whether you will have more children!

    You were very polite and restrained in your replies to her.

    I'd be blunt and say no. Sorry, I paid for them, they are now mine. I didn't hire them, I bought them. And avoid her for a while. If she's like this often, maybe avoid her a looong while.

    Wtf?
    I'd get it all organise and then when the exchange is happening say 'Okay, that will be $xxx' and refuse to hand them over unless she pays or just tell to get stuffed, you're keeping the clothes you purchased and that belong to you. Some nerve thinking she can just take them back

    Lol how difficult!
    I would be just telling her that you have put them away for storage or lent them to a friend.
    Chances are you wont ever see them again if you give them back.
    If it was a close relative I would let it go but since you aren't close ay all I wouldn't give them back

    I'd add up the cost of what you paid for them and for them to be stored and tell her she can give you the money for it. If she doesn't like it stiff.

    What a weirdo! She can pay for them plus laundering and storage costs. Or to keep the peace just say you don't have them.

    Also, if she kicks up a stink, send her a link to this thread so that she knows that normal people think she is a whack job.
