We will have free barcode label pick up days and we do offer barcode mailing (for a small fee). We will check all items for quality and Consignors will put items out on the sales floor. Please note: We love all the RL children but we will not be allowing children under the age of 13 in our store during Consignor Check In.

Is there a Consignor Fee? And what do I make?

Consignors always set their own prices and receive 60%. There is a $10.00 Consignor Fee that is taken out of the 60% check Consignors receive at the end of the sale.

Consignors can earn up to 70% by referring new Consignors via our "Tell More Sell More" referral program.

Do you have an Item Limit for Consignors?

We have a total item limit of 150 items per consignor ID. Within this 150 item limit, we have a limit of 25 items size 0 through 9 month. Bundles are considered 1 item. We encourage you to bring your best items so that you sell a high percentage of your things. A consignor who brings 75 great items will do better than a consignor who brings 100 items that are lesser quality and marked too high. Note: there is a $3.00 pricing minimum.

What is Consignor Drop & Go?

This is a Consigning option where Consignors drive up, fill out paperwork in their vehicle, an employee unload items and RL employees will put them out on the sales floor. We REQUIRE ALL items be marked for donation or we will not accept them during drop & go. This means all unsold items will be donated to our charity partners at the end of the sale. We will REQUIRE all items to be labeled with the string tags AND the barcode label stickers prior to Consignors arriving at their appointment. We will have free barcode label pick up days and we do offer barcode mailing (for a small fee).

When do I shop as a Consignor?

Consignors shop EARLY during our pre-sale! Consignors who choose "discount ALL" and "donate ALL" are who we call "ALL STARS". Our ALL STAR Consignors get a BUMP in shopping time and shop earlier than all other Consignors! It's worth it to be an ALL STAR!

Can I bring my children to Rhea Lana's of Fox Valley?

We love all the RL children and seeing them grow year after year. We know they enjoy helping you consign and shop. We have always recommended you leave children at home but this sale, due to capacity restrictions and sanitation procedures, we will not be allowing children under the age of 13 in our store during our Consignor Check In Days or during any of our Pre-Sale Shopping days/times. Thank you for your understanding!

What if my item is lost or stolen?

We guarantee Consignor items. If an item is lost or stolen we will pay you for it just as if it sold. We are organized and careful with your things and we take care of your things like they are our own. LOSS is very low at Rhea Lana's. You can trust us and our careful barcoding system with your items. If your item has several parts, please attach them securely to the hanger and to each other. If one piece is missing, we will only pay for that one piece, not the entire item. Please be sure to enter specific item descriptions into our database for guarantee of items.

What are my barcode label options?

You can print your labels at home, have them mailed to you or pick them up from us and put them on at home! To print your labels at home you MUST have a color printer and follow the directions given. You will need labels that are the right size. In order for your items to be guaranteed, you MUST bring them to us in order and have your printed inventory sheet(s) for every batch.
We are now REQUIRING barcoded labels be applied to all items prior to check in or drop & go. To make this even easier you can sign up to have them mailed to you as well.

Can I sell furniture?

We are able to accept children's, infant's and playroom furniture. This includes newer cribs, nursery furniture, changing tables, children's beds, play room tables and chairs, rocking and nursing chairs, dressers, and bookcases. Any questionable non-child related furniture MUST be pre-approved by christine@rhealana.com before entering into the system. No TV's, electronics, nick-knacks or non-child-related room accessories, please!

Can I sell Cribs, Crib Mattresses & Bumpers?

For cribs manufactured between Dec 31, 2010, and June 28, 2011, we can accept them if they have a certificate of compliance and have not been recalled.
