Buying clothes based on nub guesses?

Has anyone/would anyone buy clothes based on nub scans? I wouldn't go out and buy a load of brand new things obviously but a friend of mine has a bin bag full of lovely next stuff, stuff that's virtually brand new and was brought only a few months ago. She offered me the whole bag for £15 and has got to be worth well over £100. It's baby girls stuff and most have my guesses have been girls! Would anyone else?

What would you do with it all if you have a boy?

Well I suppose you could always buy it then sell it on if it's a boy. If you can be bothered.

You have a 50/50 chance I guess if it's that much of a bargain. If you can afford £15, why not?

When is your 20 week scan? Can she hang on to the bag til then?

you could take the chance, buy the bag for 15 quid, worst that can happen is your guess is wrong, then you can sell the bag on for the same money

Can she hold onto it until you know what your'e having? I guess £15 isn't a lot to be out if you have a boy. Nub "guesses" are just that. You have a 50/50 chance.

I'd buy it. If you find out you're having a boy someone will buy it from you on a FB selling page.

No hmm

No my nub looked like a girl. Even posted online for opinions and
ALL were girl. My boy is 3.

But then again for £15, why not, you can always sell it for £15 if you find out it's a boy.

If it's a bag full surely some is gender neutral? Hope so. For £15 I would buy it, sift through it and sell on the pink stuff if it's a boy, no great loss.

We were convinced girl based on nub but it was a boy. There might be some stuff in the bag that's neutral anyway but tbh your friends and family will give you so much stuff as you get towards your due date that it's probably not worth the money. Also charity shops tend to have lovely, barely worn clothes that are super cheap (my sister gets all hers for 25 an item and most of it is from next, mamas and papas etc)
