Rhea Lana's of North Cincinnati
Fall 2018 VIP Consignor Sign-Up
VIP Consignor Guidelines and Policies - PLEASE READ
Thank you so much for your interest in our VIP consignor program. We would love to help you sell your gently used children’s items, but there are few guidelines. Please take a moment to review. If this all sounds good to you, then just select a pick up date/time/location that works best for your schedule and one of our fantastic processors will meet you and grab your gently used items.
***EARLY BIRD SPECIAL***
Sign up now and deliver your items to one of our processors by June 3rd and we'll waive your consignor fee!! This popular special will fill up, so don't wait until the last minute!
We will continue to accept VIP items after the special, but for those of you who'd like to clean out before Summer break...we're here for YOU!
What to expect. VIP consignors receive 40% of their sales less a $9 consignor fee (waived for the Early Bird Special). You will get a consignor pass to SHOP EARLY at our Pre-Sale which will be announced when we get closer to the event. We will hang, tag, store, and transport your items to the event.
How to prepare. All clothes and shoes need to be fall/winter only. However, we will accept short sleeve shirts. No sandals, summer prints or Easter dresses. Clothing needs to be clean and odor free. If items have been in long term storage, please go through them and make sure they are current, clean and not musty from storage. No stains, holes or excessive wear.
All toys and baby equipment need to be clean and in working order with working batteries (if required). If consigned items require batteries, we will replace the batteries (determined by value of item) at the expense of $1.00 per battery.
Items need to be delivered to us in boxes or bags. Lay items flat or fold and sort by size and gender. Outfits need to be together. You will make more money if you do a pre-sort before you give us your items. Totes will be NOT be returned.
We will price items so you will make as much money as possible (about 25-30% of retail) and will be mark to sell at 1/2 price during the last part of the sale. Note: if you have large items, baby equipment or expensive brands, we understand that you may not want to let those items go half price. We strongly encourage allowing all other items to go for half price. You WILL sell MORE and take LESS home! And, of course, if you choose to donate any unsold items, it only MAKES SENSE to also choose the half-price option!
If you choose not to come to Consignor Pick-Up day, we will happily mail your check to your the next day!
*Important* At drop-off, if items have clearly not been sorted and laundered, we will not be able to accept them. Also, items that do not meet the Rhea Lana's standards - clothing with stains, holes, excessive wear, dirty shoes, out-of-season items, items that don't work or are without batteries or items we don't accept (see below) - will immediately be donated and you will NOT get them back. No exceptions. We do not have storage space or the time to arrange to return things to you. Simply read and follow our guidelines listed below to have your items ready and ask questions in advance.
What Happens Next:
Sign up and we will have a VIP Processor contact you to arrange drop off day/time. Please let me know if you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer anything! Once we receive your items, here is what you can expect.
- You will receive a Welcome Letter with your Consignor ID #. This will give you directions on how to log into the system, how to see the prices we set and then during the event you will be able to see what sold!
- Your items will be entered into the system before the event begins. We go in order of when the items are picked up.
- You will receive a pass in the mail prior to the event starting with your Pre-Sale pass to shop early with the Consignors.
- REFER your friends and earn more $$$. Refer 1 friend to consign in our VIP Program (or do their own) and you will earn 45% of your sales. Refer 3 friends and you will earn 50% of your sales! Make sure your friends email [email protected] to tell us you referred them!
Please let us know if you have any questions. We are here to help!
