All About It

What is This All About?

Rhea Lana's, Inc. is an upscale children's consignment event business. We hold semi annual events Arkansas and in many other states. Melissa is proud to own Rhea Lana's of El Dorado. She feels blessed to offer something that benefits South Arkansas families!

From Melissa:

Our South Arkansas shoppers are always pleased to find a nice selection of brands like: Matilda Jane, Persnickety, Gap, Crew Cuts, Mustard Pie, Ralph Lauren, Livie & Luca, Nike, Kelly's Kids, North Face and Patagonia. Our most popular toys are Little Tikes outdoor playgrounds, Racing Car beds, Kitchens, Doll Houses, Tool Benches, Barbie Jeeps, 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 make contributions to several wonderful charities and School Guidance Counselors to benefit needy kids in South Arkansas.

Tell me again, how does this work?

We receive HIGH QUALITY children's clothing on consignment and sell at our event. We give consignors a generous 70% of the sale price (which they select). We GUARANTEE no lost items. Consignor's checks and reports are available on Pick up Day after the sale. You don't have to wait for it to arrive in the mail!

Do you carry only children's clothing?

No. At our events we carry children's furniture, maternity clothing and nursing accessories and infant equipment (such as strollers, high chairs, car seats and portable cribs.) We also carry high quality toys, children's books, video games and sports accessories. Again this year is "The Furniture Nook." We will be selling high quality gently used furniture. We are excited for this opportunity to continue out efforts to help meet the needs of your family!

Most consignment stores give 40-50%. Why do you give 50-80%?

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 value our consignors so we track each item with our unique computerized barcoding system and database. We seek to treat our customers and consignors as we would want to be treated. Again, we think more items will be available to moms on a budget if we are careful with the items. Plus, some ladies are not willing to risk losing some items. This way they 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 or selling online?

We do most of the work for you! You just prepare your items and bring them to the store. We do all of the advertising and staff the event. You just pick up your check, detailed inventory report and neatly-sorted items. We'll even have friendly workers there to help you and answer your questions! Plus, you will make lots more money than you would at a garage sale or consignment store. It's also a ONE STOP drop off versus selling items online! And you get ONE BIG CHECK at the end of the week!

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 10 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 LIVE on this website AND on her MOBILE PHONE.
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.
