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.

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 spouse or mother with me to the Pre-Sale?

We are allowing workers 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 workers 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 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 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. 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, November 11th at 8am.

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
