We encourage you to write the number that corresponds with your item entry on the tag. This will help you keep your items in order during the consignor process. There is no need to write any other information on the tag.

Do I need to assemble large items?

We require all items either come assembled or are assembled at consignor drop off.

Do I have to find all my unsold items on Pick Up Day?

No, we will have everything neatly sorted for you by your consignor number.

What if I want to consign but am unable to make it on Pick Up Day?

If you are unable to pick up your own items you are allowed to notify us with whom has permission to pick up on your behalf. Please note, our guarantee is void for items when anyone other than the consignor picks up unsold items. Any items left past the designated pick up time will be given to donations as we are unable to hold any items in our rented space.

Where do the donated items go?

Our donated items go to local foster families and non-profit organizations in the community.

Do you have an Item Limit for consignors?

We have a minimum item limit of 15 items unless you have furniture or baby equipment. The maximum limit is 150 items per consignor number. Participation Fee is $9.50 per consignor number. Once you have entered 150 items in your batch, you will need to sign up for a second consignor number and start a new batch under this new consignor number for any remaining items. This is different than last season when you could start a new batch. With a new Consignor Number, your 9.50 participation fee will automatically be deducted and no additional consignor fees will need to be paid at check in.

What are my Consignor Options regarding printing barcode labels to stick onto my tags?

Option 1 - Let us print them for you free of charge. You'll pick them up and label your items at the store on one of the Drop Off Days. (This is most popular.) Option 2 - Let us print them for you free of charge. You'll pick them up and label your items at home. Then bring your already labelled items on Drop Off Days. These items will be guaranteed only if they are brought neatly organized and in numerical order. Option 3 - Print your barcode labels at home using a COLOR PRINTER. Follow the directions CAREFULLY that appear after you enter your items. Label your items at home. Bring your labelled items on Drop Off Days. These items will be guaranteed only if they are brought neatly organized and in numerical order.

Can I bring my spouse or mother with me to the Pre-Sale Event?

We are allowing volunteers and consignors to bring either their spouse or parent with them to help them shop, not a sister or best friend. You may give your guest pass to your sister or friend & meet them at the Guest Sale later in the evening. Our volunteers and consignors have worked hard to earn this special shopping privilege and we want to honor them. We will be checking!

Can I bring children to the Pre-Sale?

We LOVE children. But we strongly suggest that you leave children at home or with a sitter during our Pre-Sale event. The store is very busy on this day and children tend to get separated from their parents. Children are welcome to attend on one of the public days!

How should I price my items and should I mark them to go HALF PRICE?

We suggest you set the price at 25% of the retail value. Baby Equipment, Furniture and Large Indoor/Outdoor Toys usually sell for approx 30% of retail and are in high demand. We have an abundance of 0-6 month sizes, so they must be priced competitively in order to sell. Maternity and Junior clothing are not shopped as heavily, so price these competitively, also. We suggest you mark your final items to go half price on our final shopping days. It's much better to sell them at half price than to take them back home!

Can I be a consignor in several Rhea Lana's events?

Absolutely! Just register for a unique consignor number for each event. Each of our high quality events operates on a separate database which allows us to track every single item and offer our exceptional Consignor Guarantee - if we misplace an item we will happily pay you for it on Consignor Pick Up Day. That has always been part of the Rhea Lana Model and always will be!

Can I use wire hangers?

No, please use children's plastic hangers for sizes 10 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 12 and above. These can be the plastic hangers clothes are purchased from the stores on or they can be purchased from a dollar store. A great way to recoup these consignment costs is to add .50 to each item. No wire hangers please!

How do I secure small pieces with Toys or Equipment?

Place them in a ziploc bag, write your consignor number and price on the bag and then seal the ziploc with clear packing tape. This is important!

When I sell items in a ziploc bag, how do I attach the price tag?

First, be sure to affix the barcode label to the string tag; do not stick it directly onto the item or the bag. Then attach the string tag to the item and tag inside the bag. Make sure the tag is visible.

How do I carry my clothes while I am shopping?

We suggest you bring a laundry basket or large IKEA bag for easy shopping. Strollers will need to be tagged at the door.

What if my item is not worth your minimum price guideline of $3.00?

If it meets our "excellent quality" standards, then group it together with one or two more like items. Pin them together on a hanger, or group them in a ziploc bag and put one price for the entire group.

Should I iron my clothes?

Wrinkled clothes do not sell! We will likely send them home to you if they are extremely wrinkled. Please do what is necessary to make your clothes look clean and nice. Remember, the better they look, the more likely they are to sell!

Can I enter additional batches?

Yes, you may enter additional batches until our item entry deadline or until we reach our maximum capacity of items for our location. Remember, there is a $9.50 fee for each batch of 150 items entered, one of these will be deducted from your Consignor check, any additional fees incurred will need to be paid at Consignor Check In unless you register for an additional consignor number.

I don't smoke, but my husband does, what if there is a small amount of smoke odor in my children's clothing that I am bringing to sell?

We are not able to accept ANY clothing that has odor of any kind. When it is hung on the rack with other clothes, the odor spreads. We must be sensitive to children and families with allergies and we absolutely cannot sell any items with smoke odor, pet odor, or any other kind of odor. Clothing with pet hair is also not acceptable.

Will you be featuring local businesses and non-profit organizations?

We have many affordable options including Goody Bag Partnership, Website Presence, Logos on our Print Material, Mentions in our Email Blasts to over 41,500 Central Arkansas Families, Mentions on our Facebook Page of 46,000 members or Vendor Booth at our event. We can design a package best suited for the size and budget of your business or organization. Please contact lindsay@rhealana.com
