Here are some guidelines to help as you prepare your items for the sale. Click here to see what is acceptable and not acceptable for the sale.

Supplies Needed

HANGERS – in order to protect your clothing items we only accept plastic hangers. Find plastic hangers at Wal-Mart, Target, Dollar Stores. Retail plastic hangers are acceptable too.

STRING TAGS – Avery White Marking Tags Strung (size 1.75 x 1.093 inches) are required on each item to affix our barcode labels to. You can find these at Wal-Mart, office supply stores, Rhea Lana Store (link) or large quantities may be purchased from Amazon.

You’ll also need re-sealable bags (for shoes, small toys, etc…), masking tape, scotch tape, sharpie, and safety pins. For large quantities of quality safety pins we recommend ordering from Cleaners Supply .

If you would like to print your barcodes at home you’ll need adhesive address labels size 1” X 2 5/8” (30 up). We recommend ordering from Amazon Here. Please note: all labels printed at home MUST be printed in color.

Clothing

The better they look, the better they sell! Please take time to wash and iron your clothes if necessary. Please check for stains, broken zippers, torn hemlines, etc.

We will be checking your items at the store and will not receive any item that is not in excellent condition.

Use small PLASTIC hangers for sizes 10 and below. Use larger PLASTIC hangers for sizes 12 and above. No metal hangers, please! Plastic and wire-coated hangers can be purchased at discount stores. This makes shopping more pleasant for everyone!

This is our Spring/Summer Sale. We will not be accepting holiday attire, corduroy, thick winter coats, winter boots and obvious fall/winter items for our next sale.

Please group items together so that they will equal a value of at least $3.00. They need to be pinned together as well so they don't get separated.

All pants must be clipped or pinned to a hanger, not folded over, as they tend to end up on the floor and shoppers want to see the entire pant to purchase.

Safety pin all sets and accessories securely together with pants hung on the back of the shirt at the waist. Both pieces need to be viewable without unpinning them.

Shoes

We will only be accepting Like New shoes. All shoes must be warm weather shoes, such as sandals, water shoes, flip flops, etc.
Shoes are tricky to tag, so please follow these guidelines to insure shoes remain together:
1) Write your consignor number and price on masking tape, placing on bottom of both shoes.
2) Safety pin the price tag to a shoe lace or through the shoe eyelet.
3) You may ZIP TIE shoes together or put them in a Zip Lock bag.

Blankets and Bedding

We no longer accept Bedding or bedding sets to our sales. This includes anything with Polyfill such as comforters, pillows, crib bumpers, etc.

Toys, Furniture, Equipment

Toy recall information- Due to the high number of toy recalls during the past year, we will be inspecting toys very carefully. We reserve the right to pull any toy that we think might have been recalled. To help us, please do not bring any toys that have been subject to a recall.

Large Little Tikes Toys, Furniture, and Baby Equipment are in high demand! We typically sell 95% of them at our events. Use strong clear packing tape to secure the string part of the tag only to the large item leaving the tag itself free. Please do not stick the barcode label to the item or ziptop bag...only adhere the label to a white string tag.

In addtion, please write your Consignor ID and price of the item on a piece of masking tape and attach to your large toys and children's furniture. This will enable us to sell your item even if the tag comes off!

Bedding

No bedding sets, pillows, thick blankets, or anything with polyfill will be accepted.

Car Seats

Your car seat must have been manufactured within the past five 5 years. It must not be subject to recall or have been in an accident. You may check the following website for current recalls: www.carseat.org/Recalls/179NP.pdf All seat covers and straps must be thoroughly cleaned. You will be asked to sign a car seat waiver stating your car seat has all the pieces and is in excellent condition and not more than five years old. Car seats will be closely inspected for safety reasons.

Furniture Nook

We accept children's furniture including cribs (see note below), changing tables, rocking chairs, children's beds, dressers, desks, bookcases and tables.

RECENT GOVERNMENT RULING ON CRIBS
"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."
