All About It

What is This All About?

Rhea Lana's, Inc. is an upscale children's consignment event business. We have been in business in the state of Arkansas for over 13 years. Since 2008, Rhea Lana's has expanded its footprint into 26 franchises across the nation, and now has 5 sales in the Kansas City area.

Our most popular brands are Gymboree, Hollister, American Eagle, Gap, Baby Lulu, Polo, Tommy Hilfiger, Nike, Cottontail Originals, Pepper Toes, Anavini, Lucky Jeans, Amanda Remembered and Cach Cach. Our most popular toys are Little Tikes outdoor playgrounds, Racing Car beds, Kitchens, Doll Houses, Tool Benches, Barbie Jeeps, Brio wooden train sets, and American Girl Dolls and accessories. We also carry beautiful nursery furniture and bedding, cradles, carseats, strollers, high chairs, exer-saucers and walkers.

Thanks to our consignors who generously donate their unsold items after each sale, we are able to make contributions to several wonderful organizations that reach out to those in need in our community.

Tell me again, how does this work?

Rhea Lana's is a semi-annual (one Spring and one Fall) consignment sale event of HIGH QUALITY children's items and maternity clothes. Consignors enter their items into our easy to use online system, prepare and price their own items, and make 70% of all items that are purchased during the week of the sale. Consignors can check their sales online throughout the week and then pick up their check on the final day, along with their unsold items. We GUARANTEE all items (i.e. if an unsold item is not returned, then we will pay the consignor 70% of the price of that item). If consignors choose, unsold items can be left and we will donate them to a few hand picked local charities.

Do you carry only children's clothing?

No. In addition to carrying clothes ranging in size from infant to juniors,we also carry children's furniture, nursery bedding, maternity clothing, nursing accessories, and infant equipment (such as strollers, high chairs, and portable cribs). We have HIGH QUALITY toys, children's books, video games, costumes/dress-up clothes, and sports accessories.

Most consignment stores give 40-50%. Why do you give 50-75%?

Our consignors are very special to us! We believe our consignors deserve a fair price for their items, and we want each consignor to make the most money possible to benefit their family.

Why do you guarantee each item?

We abide by a simple philosophy, and that is to seek to treat our customers and consignors as we would want to be treated! We value our consignors and the wonderful items that they entrust to us, so we track each item with our unique computerized barcoding system/database. Second, we think more items will be available to moms on a budget if we are careful with the items in our care. Third, some women are not willing to risk losing some items. By guaranteeing their items, women know they will not suffer a loss.

Consignors know that they can TRUST us with their high quality items!

Why is your event better than having my own garage sale?

We do most of the work for you! We do all of the marketing, advertising, and staff the event. You just prepare your items and bring them to the store. You can pick up your check, detailed inventory report, and neatly-sorted items on the final day. We'll even have friendly workers there to help you and answer your questions! Plus, you will make alot more money than you would at a garage sale or consignment store.

Why do you emphasize EXCELLENT QUALITY so much?

No one wants to sort through, much less BUY, low quality items for their children. It is a time waster for everyone to put worn, stained, out-of-date items on a rack. That's why we insist on accepting only HIGH QUALITY items.

Why did you put together a web site?

Because everybody else is doing it (kidding). Actually, we have had our website online for approximately 12 years. When we developed our unique barcoding system and online data entry system, many moms did not yet have computers in their home. If they did, they were just beginning to learn to email and use the internet! But moms have learned to love entering their items online and tracking their sales throughout our events! Rhea Lana's gives them control in pricing their items and makes it very easy to make a great profit.

What kind of control does a consignor have over her items?

Several things:
1. She can select the price of each item.
2. She can choose whether she wants to sell some items for half price on the final sale days.
3. She can track the sale of each item on this website.
4. She knows she is guaranteed the item won't be lost. She will receive payment for it, or she may choose to donate it or retrieve it.

As you can see consignors can be very involved if they wish.
