Do you have an Item Limit for consignors?

We have a minimum limit of 15 items or $35 worth, in order to participate, unless you have furniture or baby equipment.
As always, we encourage you to bring your best items so that you sell a high percentage of your things. A consignor who brings 75 great items will do better than a consignor who brings 100 items that are poor quality and marked too high. There is NO limit to the TOTAL number of items you can bring.

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

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 PreSale?

We love your children, but we know you will enjoy your night more if you don't have them with you. We strongly suggest that you NOT bring your children to the PreSale as there might be lines and will surely be a lot of shoppers. Just bring a tape measure and their measurements and enjoy a mom's night out!

How should I price my items?

We suggest you set the price at 30% of the retail value. Baby Equipment, Furniture and Large Indoor/Outdoor Toys usually sell for more than the 30%, 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.

Can I be a consignor in more than one Rhea Lana event?

Yes, but you will need to enter your items online in separate batches - one for each sale. Be VERY sure you enter your items for the correct sale.

Do I need to sign up for a new consignor number for each sale?

No... Please reuse your number from previous sales (this helps us tremendously during our sorting process). If you can't remember it, there is a place on the "enter items" page where it can be requested. If you have any problems, just email us at karen@rhealana.com and we'll be glad to send it to you.

Can I use wire hangers?

No. Use childrens plastic hangers for sizes 10 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 12 and above. No wire hangers, please! We've NEVER seen an item of clothing that would stay on a wire hanger without an abundance of safety pins! Clothing looks nicer and doesn't smash as easily on plastic too. You can collect hangers from purchased clothing during the year, or you can also purchase them for around $1-$2 for 6-10 plastic hangers from the dollar store or Wal-Mart.
examples of hangers accepted HERE they do not all need to be the same color.

How do I secure small pieces with Toys or Equipment?

Place them in a ziploc bag and then seal the bag 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 tote, or a large shopping bag. We may have some bags or baskets available for use, but are on a first come first serve basis.

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

If it meets our "excellence 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! Presentation is very important, please do what is necessary to make your clothes look clean and nice.
Remember, the better they look, the better they sell!

Can I enter additional batches?

Yes, you may enter additional batches until 11:59 PM the day before the LAST CHECK IN day. See the SALE INFO for specifics.
