What percentage do I make?

Consignors earn 70-80% of their sales.

What is the consignor fee?

The consignor fee is automatically deducted from your proceeds.

How can I maximize my consignor experience?

Consignors enjoy the experience when they allow themselves enough time to get all their items prepared and entered without feeling rushed. Organizing your items by gender and size will allow for easy entering and a quick drop off. Using our Voice Entry feature is a HUGE time saver for consignors as it allows you to enter 100 items in just 30 minutes. Consider printing your barcode labels at home to expedite consignor drop off.

Please visit our Consignor Schedule to view the consignor deadline.

Where can I find string tags?

Wal-Mart, office supply stores, and the Rhea Lana store

Where do I drop off my items?

You will drop your items off at the event location during the designated Drop Off days/times.

What are my BARCODE options?

We will have your barcode labels printed for you at Consignor Drop Off unless you choose to print them at home. You may also take advantage of one of our Early Barcode pick up days/times which allows you to pick up the printed barcodes from us and affix the labels at home.

How should I price my items?

We recommend pricing your items at 25-30%. Our Pricing Guide goes into more detail.

Can I be a consignor in several RL events?

Yes! You’ll need to have a separate consignor number for each event.

What hangers do I use?

We require plastic hangers for all items. We care about your items and plastic hangers ensure your items are protected and look great on the rack. Retail plastic hangers are acceptable!

Do I get my hangers back?

Your hangers stay on the items and go home with the shopper. However, any items you purchase will include the hanger. If this is your first time consigning we suggest marking your items 25-50 cents higher to help re-coop your initial investment.

What if my item is not worth $3?

You’ll need to bundle items to reach the required $3.00 value minimum.

How long does drop off take?

We typically recommend to allow one hour per one hundred items for Consignor Drop Off.

Your Check and Sales Report are available on Consignor Pick Up day!

Can I see which items have sold?

Yes! Our consignors can watch their sales live from the website or the Rhea Lana App.

Can I bring a guest with me to consignor pre-sale?

Yes, you may bring a spouse OR parent only with you.

Are consignors required to volunteer?

Consignors are not required to volunteer, but we certainly encourage you to join our team as a volunteer! Volunteers shop first and score the best deals!

Why is RL’s better than having a garage sale or selling in the Facebook Marketplace?

It’s much less work than conducting your own garage sale and certainly safer and much easier than meeting strangers and selling items one at a time online.

I’m running short on time, which items should I enter first?

We frequently sell 95% of our baby equipment, furniture, and toys! This includes outdoor toys! They are in high demand and you can earn top dollar for them at Rhea Lana’s!

What do I write on my tags?

We encourage you to write the number that corresponds with your item entry on the tag. This will help you keep your items in order during the consignor process. There is no need to write any other information on the tag.

Do I need to assemble large items?

We require all items either come assembled or are assembled at consignor drop off.

What is the inventory sheet?

The inventory sheet is printable once you click ‘Finish Batch’, it is a print out of each item you’ve entered into the event and is required at consignor drop off in order for us to guarantee your items.

Do I have to find all my unsold items on Pick Up Day?

No, we will have everything neatly sorted for you by your consignor number.

What if I want to consign but am unable to make it on Pick Up Day?

If you are unable to pick up your own items you are allowed to notify us with whom has permission to pick up on your behalf. Please note, our guarantee is void for items when anyone other than the consignor picks up unsold items. Any items left past the designated pick up time will be given to donations as we are unable to hold any items in our rented space.

Where do the donated items go?

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

Do you have an item limit for consignors?

We have a minimum limit of 15 items in order to participate, unless you have furniture or baby equipment. Due to the growth of our sale and in an effort to continue our standard of high quality items, we are limiting the number of items. Each Consignor may bring up to 150 total items. We are also limiting the number of maternity items to 25 per Consignor. So, bring your best! It is our experience that a consignor who brings 75 great items will do better than a consignor who brings 100 items that are poor quality or out-of-date and priced too high.

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

Option 1 - Let us print them for you free of charge. You'll pick them up and label your items at the store on one of the Drop Off Days. (This is most popular.)
Option 2 - Let us print them for you free of charge. You'll pick them up and label your items at home. Then bring your already labeled items on Drop Off Days. (You will need a printed inventory list and your items must be organized in inventory list order in order to be guaranteed.)
Option 3 - Print your barcode labels at home using a COLOR PRINTER. Follow the directions CAREFULLY that appear on the "enter items" page after you enter your number and password. Label your items at home. Bring your labeled items on Drop Off Days. (You will need a printed inventory list and your items must be organized in inventory list order in order to be guaranteed.)

Do I need to sign up for a new consignor number for each sale?

NO...... Please reuse your number from the previous Fayetteville/Springdale sales (this helps us tremendously during our sorting process). If you can't remember it, there is a place on the "enter items" page where it can be requested. (Rhea Lana's of NWA and Rhea Lana's of Fayetteville/Springdale are considered two separate sales, and if you consign at both events, you will have two different consignor numbers.) If you have any problems, just email us at ashley@rhealana.com or briana@rhealana.com and we'll be glad to send it to you.

Can I bring children to the Pre-Sale?

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 without the kiddos.

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

YES!! We allow 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 and meet them at the Guest Sale later in the evening. (We value the time our workers volunteered to earn their pass, and we want to make it fair for everyone.)

Can I use wire hangers?

Please use children's plastic hangers for sizes 10 and below and larger plastic hangers for sizes 12 and above. (We do not allow wire hangers because they can create a gray ash as they slide along our racks.)

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! We cannot be responsible for lost toy pieces so please make sure and secure them firmly.

When I sell items in a ziploc bag, how do I attach the price tag?

First, be sure to affix the barcode label to a string tag; do not stick the barcode label sticker directly onto the item or the bag. Then attach the string tag to the item and tag inside the bag. Please 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.

Can I enter additional batches?

Yes, you may enter additional batches. Just click on "New Batch" on the Enter Items page. (Each consignor number is allowed 150 items total in all the combined batches. If you have more than 150 items, you will need to register for a second consignor number.)

Should I iron my clothes?

Wrinkled clothes do not sell well! 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 - and the BIGGER YOUR CHECK!

Will you be featuring local businesses?

Yes! We have lots of sponsorship opportunities at affordable prices. Let us help you reach your target market - moms with families. Contact Ashley at ashley@rhealana.com for more information.
