Do you have an Item Limit for consignors?

We have a minimum limit of 15 items unless you have furniture or baby equipment. The maximum limit is 150 items per consignor number. The consignor fee is $9.50. Once you have entered 150 items in your consignor number (either in 1 or multiple batches), you will need to sign up for an additional consignor number for any remaining items. This is different from previous seasons 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.

Then bring your already labeled items to either Drop & Go or one of the Check In Days. These items will be guaranteed at Check In 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.

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

Consignors to may 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. We will be checking! All other tickets will follow individual guidelines.

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 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!

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, seal the bag with clear packing tape and tape the string tag to the outside of the bag. Also, write your consignor number and the price on the actual bag itself.

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 under one consignor number 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 up to 150 items entered (either in one batch or multiple batches), this will be deducted from your Consignor check automatically. If you have more than 150 items, you will need to start another Consignor number and you will again be charged a $9.50 fee.

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.
