We are allowing volunteers 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 volunteers 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 make other arrangements for your kiddos for the Pre-Sale Event simply because of lines and crowds. Shopping without your little ones will be much less stressful for you (and them.) Be sure to bring your kids' sizes, measurements and a tape measure with you, but treat yourself to a night out without kids while you have fun shopping with other moms.

How should I price my items?

We suggest you set the price at 25%-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. You may also view our RL Pricing Guide at http://searcy.rhealana.com/pricing-points.asp

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 10 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 12 and above. PLEASE, DO NOT USE ANY WIRE HANGERS.

How do I secure small pieces with Toys or Equipment?

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

When I sell items in a ziplock 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. 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 ziplock 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 the 'cut off' time. YOU WILL BE CHARGED ONE CONSIGNOR FEE PER BATCH/300 ITEMS, so you will want to make sure that each batch has the maximum number of 300 items before you open/start a new batch.

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.
