    Default Ok or not?

    DS has a bunch of fancy clothes that he is about to grow out of and I can probably sell on the BSS pages as a designer bundle. Most of them are hardly used as little babies grow so quick!
    Quite a few of them were gifts though and I feel a bit icky about selling them. If I don't sell them they will go back to my mums house & get passed along to the next baby boy in our family.
    Would you feel comfortable selling them?

    I think it's fine, you can't possibly keep everything your child gets as a gift.
    If I had given a baby clothes and the I saw the mum was selling it after Bub had outgrown it I wouldn't mind either.

    I sell lots of gifts the kids grow out of or dont use. But I always put the money I got from the sale towards something for the child (new shoes or as dd is older a toy she is wanting or new clothes that fit)

    Etiquette rules would say that once a gift is given, it's up to the recipient what happens to that gift.
    You're not doing anything insensitive or unkind.
    You're making sure someone gets use out of lovely things.

    If you sold them the week after and they still had tags attached I would think it rude.

    If he's worn them it's free for all

    Good idea, I'll have a bunch of stuff to go as we won't be having any more kids so I'll keep a stash from the sales to buy him some new stuff.
