Do you have an Item Limit for consignors?

The Joplin Rhea Lana Sale does NOT currently have an overall items limit; however, we are limiting infant, junior and maternity clothing to the following: 1. Infant Clothing: 20 items sized 0-9 mos PER GENDER PER CONSIGNOR. 2. Junior Clothing: 10 items sized 14 junior and up PER GENDER PER CONSIGNOR. 3. Maternity Clothing: 10 items PER CONSIGNOR.

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

Option 1 - Buy label paper and print and affix your labels on to your tags at home. The label size is 2 5/8" x 1". This option will void your guarantee, UNLESS you bring your items in numerical order to consignor check in. Once we are able to check your items and account for everything, we will guarantee your items.

Option 2. Pick up your printed labels from us anytime during our check in day or pre-label pick up day Saturday, February 10 from 5-8pm in the convention center lobby! You can take the labels and affix them to your tags at home. This option will void your guarantee, UNLESS you bring your items in order to consignor check in. Once we are able to check your items and account for everything, we will guarantee your items.

Option 3. Keep the items in order and pick your labels up on check in day and label in store. This is the best option if you are a first time consignor!

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

YES!! We allow consignors to bring their husband or mother with them to the Pre-Sale to help them shop. This does not include your best friend. We will be checking! You may give your guest pass to your friend & meet them at the Guest Sale later in the evening.

Can I bring children to the Pre-Sale?

We strongly suggest that you NOT bring your children to the Pre-Sale. Depending on the presale you qualify for, the lines can be very lengthy (MUCH shorter if you work a shift or two in the store). The long lines are NOT fun for children, nor their irritated parents. :) Just bring a tape measure and their measurements and enjoy a mom's night. I would encourage you to bring them on the other days of the sale as we will have an excellent photographer onsite taking pictures!

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 and are in high demand. We have an abundance of 0-6 month clothing 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 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 6 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 6 and above. No wire hangers, please! They will not be accepted at drop off.

How do I secure small pieces with Toys or Equipment?

Place them in a Ziploc bag and then seal the Ziploc with clear packing tape. This is important!

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

First, be sure to stick the bar code label to the price tag. Do not stick it directly onto the bag. Then attach the price tag securely and place both item and tag inside the ziploc bag. Please make sure the price 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. Some people tie a belt around the laundry basket for drag it around. We will have shopping carts available for your use at the times when the store is not too crowded to use them. So, the following pre-sales will definitely be able to use them: supermoms, early worker, worker. All other pre-sales on Thursday will be too crowded for the carts. After Thursday, we should have them available at all times. 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 "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! 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 Monday, February 11 at 4:00pm.

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?

Yes! Let us help you reach your target market - moms with families. We have Vendor Booths in our Gallery of Friends. For the application and agreement, email sherrie@rhealana.com
