Our donated items go to local foster families and non-profit organizations in the community.

Can I consign a crib?

Because of our high regard for the safety of children and in light of the recent ruling by the CPSC, Rhea Lana's Inc. will no longer be accepting ANY cribs manufactured before December 2010. Cribs manufactured between December 2010 and June 28, 2011, must have a certificate of compliance and not be recalled to be consigned with Rhea Lana's. Any crib manufactured after June 28, 2011, and has not been recalled, can be consigned as long as it meets Rhea Lana's quality standards.

Is there a guideline on prepping clothes?

Yes! Click on the Consign tab on the right of the screen then merchandise prep. If you have further questions on prepping, please contact us by e-mail at Whitney@rhealana.com or Kaila@rhealana.com

How should I price my item's?

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 0-9 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.

Do I stay with my items when I come to check in?

No. We take care of the items that you will be consigning and return any unsold items on Pick Up Day.

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

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 with you if they are extremely wrinkled. Please do what is necessary to make your clothes look clean, nice and presentable. Remember, the better they look, the more likely they are to sell.

Can I use wire hangers?

No wire hangers please. You can pick up plastic children's hangers in the infant/toddler section at Walmart. This is where I have found them to be the cheapest.

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.

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.

Can I bring children to the Pre-Sale?

We strongly suggest that you do NOT bring your children to the Pre-Sale. We have a large crowd and feel you would enjoy this time without children. Just come equipped with 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.

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.

Can I enter additional batches?

Yes, you may enter additional batches.

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

We are allowing workers and consignors to bring one immediate family member with them to the Pre-Sale to help them shop. This includes your husband or mother, not your best friend. You may give your guest pass to your friend & meet them at the Guest Sale later in the evening.

Will you be featuring local businesses and non-profit organizations?

Yes! We have lots of sponsorship opportunities. Let us help you reach your target market - moms with families. We offer website sponsorships, and more. Contact us for complete information.
