Option 1 - You will get your printed bar-code labels during Consignor Drop Off and you will place the stickers on the string tag in-store. (Don't forget to print your inventory sheets and bring them with you!) Option 2 - Pick your bar-code labels up at our "Early Bar-Code Pick-Up" (Dates will be released closer to the sale) and label your items (place the bar-code sticker on the string tag) at home. When labeling, ensure the bar-code is all on one side... if you bend/wrap the bar-code, it will not scan. Then bring your already labeled items to the store on our Drop Off Day. We will still honor the guarantee IF you bring your items to the store IN NUMERICAL ORDER as they were keyed in (Don't forget to print your inventory sheets and bring them with you!). Option 3 - Print your barcode labels at home using a COLOR PRINTER and ensure alignment is accurate. Follow the directions CAREFULLY that appear after you enter your items. Labels that are not printed correctly will have to be re-labeled in store during drop off. Label your items (place the bar-code sticker on the string tag) at home. When labeling, ensure the bar-code is all on one side... if you bend/wrap the bar-code, it will not scan. Then bring your already labeled items to the store on our Drop Off Day. We will still honor the guarantee IF you bring your items to the store IN NUMERICAL ORDER as they were keyed in (Don't forget to print your inventory sheets and bring them with you!).
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.
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 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.
Absolutely! Just register for a unique consignor number for each area event. Each of our high quality events operates on a separate database which allows us to track every single item and offer our exceptional Consignor Guarantee - if we misplace an item we will happily pay you for it on Consignor Pick Up Day. That has always been part of the Rhea Lana Model.
No, please use children's plastic hangers for sizes 10 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 12 and above. These can be the plastic hangers clothes are purchased from the stores on or they can be purchased from a dollar store. A great way to recoup these consignment costs is to add .50 to each item. No wire hangers please!
Place them in a Ziploc bag and then seal the Ziploc with clear packing tape. This is important.
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.
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.
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.
