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 Pre-Sale?

We love children (we are moms, too). But we are extremely busy on Pre-Sale and our floor is very crowded with lots of wonderful merchandise. There isn't much room to maneuver strollers with babies. We strongly suggest that you NOT bring your children to the Pre-Sale. Just bring a tape measure and their measurements and enjoy a mom's night out. Children are welcome to attend on one of the Public shopping days.

How should I price my items?

We suggest you set the price at 25-30 percent of the retail value. Baby equipment, furniture and large indoor/outdoor toys usually sell for more 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 items competitively, also.

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

Yes, but you will need to enter your items online in separate batches and under separate Consignor Numbers. Register for each sale separately.

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. NO WIRE HANGERS, PLEASE!

How do I secure small pieces that belong with toys or equipment?

Place them in a Ziploc bag and then seal the Ziploc with clear packing tape. This is important!IN permanent marker, include on the ziploc: your consignor number, price, and item description. (If that bag becomes separated, we want to be able to match it back to the appropriate item!)

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 with your name on it. Large bags will need to be checked 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.

What if my clothes or items have a slight smoke smell?

We are not able to accept ANY clothing or other items that have an odor of any kind.

Can you tell me a bit more about sponsorship opportunities?
