In bailment, the bailee can use the goods only accordingly to the direction of the bailor.

In a sale, the consideration is always in terms of money.
In a Bailment, the consideration need not be money as it may be the understanding to return the goods bailed on accomplishment of the purpose.

In a sale, there is no return of goods from the buyer to the seller, unless there is a breach.
In a bailment, the goods are necessarily returned after the specified time or accomplishment of the purpose.
