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.
ACCEPTABLE ITEMS - At our SPRING & SUMMER EVENT we will receive Spring & Summer clothing (Children's, Junior, and Maternity). We WILL accept jeans, pants and light-weight long sleeve shirts and jackets! Swimsuits, sundresses, Easter dresses, sleeveless tops, sports attire/equipment are all big sellers at our Spring & Summer Events. Please save all winter coats, holiday attire and costumes (dress up costumes are acceptable) for our Back-to-School/Fall & Winter Event!
CLOTHING PREPARATION - The better they look, the better they sell!
1) Check for stains, broken zippers, torn hemlines, missing buttons, etc.
We will be double checking at the store and will not receive any item that is not in excellent condition.
2) Wash and iron your clothes!
3) USE PLASTIC HANGERS ONLY!
Please, no wire hangers; we will kindly ask you to switch to plastic hangers if items are brought to Drop-Off on wire hangers! This makes shopping more pleasant for everyone. Clothes tend to fall off wire hangers and may be overlooked and not purchased if on the floor.
Note: Use children's plastic hangers for sizes 10 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 12 and above. You may also use wire COATED hangers as long as they are 'size appropriate'. Plastic hangers can be purchased at discount stores like Walmart, Target and dollar stores. Some retail clothing stores will gladly give you plastic hangers upon your request!
***When hanging your clothing items, make sure the hanger is facing to the left so it looks like a question mark - ?***
4) Group items together so that they will equal a value of at least $3.00.
Infant sleeping gowns or onesies and children's pajamas are great to group together as a set of 2 or 3. They may be pinned together on one hanger.
5) Use larger safety pins to attach all pants to a hanger, ironed flat front.
Pants that are folded over on a hanger tend to end up on the floor.
6) All sets and accessories need to be pinned securely together, with pants hung on the back of the shirt; pin the waist of the pants to the shoulders of the shirt. Both pieces need to be seen without unpinning them. If a shirt/pant set are on separate hangers, rubber band the hangers together.
7) When you are preparing and sorting your clothing items, sort them by gender and size. This will make your online entry process more organized AND will help streamline Consignor Drop Off.
8) When tagging your clothing items, the string tag needs to be pinned on the LEFT shoulder (or right side when looking at the garment). You can loop the string tag through a belt loop on pants, jeans or shorts in order to save a safety pin!
We will be accepting like-new shoes! Please, save all Summer shoes and sandals until our Spring/Summer Event. Shoes are difficult to tag, so please follow these guidelines to insure shoes remain together: 1) Write your consignor number, shoe size 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) SECURE SHOES TOGETHER WITH a ZIPTIE, or SAFETY PIN! (if shoes do not have a way to attach together or you prefer, you may place them in a ziplock bag!)
We are NOT accepting bedding at this time. We will accept the "Breathable Bumpers" but not the traditional bumpers. YES, we will still accept sheets and receiving blankets. Please email Michellescott@rhealana.com if you have any questions about bedding.
Hang and pin blankets over hangers so that shoppers can see them. 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.
Bottles, bibs, rattles, socks, bows, etc... Group these items together appropriately in ziptop bags. Secure the bag closed with clear packing tape and tape or pin the string part of the tag to the outside of the ziptop bag leaving the tag itself free. Please DO NOT stick the barcode label to the item or ziptop bag...only adhere it to a white string tag. It is also recommended to write your Consignor ID and price on the ziptop bag with a Sharpee in the case the tag comes off.
