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 double checking at the store and will not receive any item that is not in excellent condition.

Shoes

Please only bring your like-new shoes! First, put your consignor number and price on masking tape on the bottom or inside of the shoes. Then safety pin or zip tie the price tag to a shoe lace or through the shoe eyelet. Put the shoes and price tag inside Ziploc bag if you can't zip tie them together. This keeps all the shoes from getting tangled up and keeps tags from getting torn off and lost.

Bedding

It is best to package a bedding set together in its original clear plastic bag with zipper. These can also be purchased at discount stores. The giant Ziploc bags also work well.

Blankets

Hang and pin blankets over hangers so that shoppers can see them. You may also put them in a large ziploc bag. If they are small receiving blankets, group 2 or 3 together in a ziploc bag and seal with clear plastic tape. Safety pin tag to ziploc bag.

Loose Items

Bottles, bibs, rattles, socks, bows, etc group together appropriately in ziploc bags. Seal with clear packing tape. Pin tag to ziploc bag. It also helps to write your consignor number and info on the ziploc with a Sharpee in case the tag comes off during the sale.

Toys, Furniture, Equipment

Must be clean and in working order (batteries included.) Please, go through your toys carefully to assure that they are not missing pieces or broken. Think of how you would feel if you were the shopper and gave your child a puzzle as a gift...only to discover that one of the pieces was missing when he tried to put it together. :( Small parts should be bagged and attached to the main part very securely. If parts get separated it will not sell. Games should be taped closed. Puzzles, books, videos and small toys should be grouped accordingly and put in ziploc bags. Secure with clear packing tape and pin tag to the ziploc bag. It is also good to write your consignor number and info on the ziploc bag with a Sharpee in case the tag comes off. Puzzles should be wrapped securely in clear Saran wrap to keep the pieces intact.


We will only accept Beanie Baby, Disney or other name brand stuffed animals in like new condition.


Large Little Tikes Toys and Furniture are in high demand! When tagging large toys it is best to also attach a piece of masking tape to the toy with your consignor information. This will enable us to sell your toy even if the tag comes off! We sell 95% of Toys, Furniture and Baby Equipment!


Car Seats

Your car seat must have 1 year of use left. You must be the original owner. 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!

The furniture nook has been very popular! We carry all kinds of children's furniture: cribs (no drop-down sides, which have been recalled), changing tables, rocker/gliders, toddler beds, bunk beds, bookshelves, children's desks, etc. If you have a question about a furniture item, please email us at erin@rhealana.com.
