Cousin wants me to give her baby clothes back. WWYD update in blue

So I have a cousin that had a baby that is 2 years older than mine, last year she had a yard sale and had some really nice brand name clothes, that I bought from her.  She is expecting again and it's going to be a boy, and she called me and told me that she'd like her clothes back when my son outgrows them.  She says her MIL bought them for her and they are expensive.  Do you think I should have to worry about keeping them in good shape so I can return them to her free of charge, when I paid for them or what?

 

I came back and this post had exploded there are a few questions people are asking me, Yes my cousin was having a yard sale cause she needed money, but this is not a person you just hand money too, so I have my reasons for not just giving her money, but the clothes were nice clothes some still had he swing tags someone asked how much I paid.  About 80.00 total, someone also asked me if I had sold them, no I haven't sold them, my little boy is wearing some of them.  As far as her just giving me the clothes they weren't all used hand me down so I wouldn't expect that, she was having a yard sale for a reason.  Someone also asked how she worded her question.  It was basically "Ya know those clothes you got from me some of them are pretty expensive and when you get done with em I'd like them back."  Someone also commented on pettiness yes I suppose it is a bit petty of me to come on here I was just wanting some feedback.  I am surprised by the amount of it.

I think you bought them and they are yours. She can buy them back if you choose or you get to do whatever you want with them. Thats kind of crappy on her part.

I wouldn't worry about keeping them in good shape, but I would give her what I was no longer using. You could just tell her that since you paid for them, you don't really feel right about giving them back to the person you bought them from.

No, you paid for them, she didn't just give them to you or loan them to you.

I would laugh at her, and let her know she is more than welcome to purchase them back.
