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

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!).

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

We are allowing Pre-Sale Shoppers 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 team has 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 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.

Can I be a consignor in more than one Rhea Lana event?

Absolutely! Just register for a unique consignor number for each area event.

That has always been part of the Rhea Lana Model.

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 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.

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. Remember, the Participation Fee is $8.00 per consignor number. Once you have entered 250 items in your batch, you will need to sign up for a second consignor number and start a new batch under this new consignor number for any remaining items.

Do you accept breast pumps or crib bumpers?

We do NOT accept breast pumps or crib bumpers.

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.
