Please only bring your like-new shoes! 1) Put your consignor number and price on masking tape or painters tape on the bottom of the shoes or inside the footbed, this will help if they get separated. 2) Safety pin the price tag to a shoe lace or through the shoe eyelet. Zip tie the shoes together.

It is best to package a bedding set together in its original clear plastic bag with zipper. Large ziploc bags can also be purchased to keep bedding clean and together. Per the law, we are NOT allowed to sell bumpers!


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.

Loose Items

Bottles (no used nipples), bibs, rattles, new socks, bows, and small accessories - group together appropriately in ziploc bags. Seal with clear packing tape. Pin the tag to the ziploc bag. It also helps to write your consignor number and info on the ziploc with a Sharpie in case the tag comes off during the sale.

Toys, Furniture, Equipment

Must be clean and in working order (batteries included). Small parts must be bagged and attached to the main part very securely. If parts get separated, the item will not sell. Games should be taped closed and include ALL pieces. 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 Sharpie in case the tag comes off. Puzzles should be wrapped securely in clear Saran wrap to keep the pieces intact. Toys not packaged appropriately will be pulled from the sales floor.

Regarding stuffed animals, we only accept licensed characters, Squishmallows, Beanie Babies, and battery operated.

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!

Toy recall information- Due to the high number of toy recalls during the past year, we will be inspecting toys very carefully. We reserve the right to pull any toy that we think might have been recalled. To help us, please do not bring any toys that have been subject to a recall. You may check the following website for current toy recalls: Also for a helpful resource made available by the Consumer Product Safety Commission Click here.

Car Seats

Your car seat must have at least ONE YEAR before expiration. For the Fall 2024 sale, that means the expiration date may not be before September 1, 2025. It must not be subject to recall or have been in an accident. You may check the following website for current recalls: 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 that you are the original owner. Car seats will be closely inspected for safety reasons and we must be able to see the label that includes the manufactured date.

Large Furniture

If you would like to bring large furniture pieces to our sale you may do so but please make sure they are for children only (example: a kids bed is okay, but a living room couch is not).

Because of our high regard for the safety of children and in light of the recent ruling by the CPSC, Rhea Lana's Inc. will no longer be accepting ANY cribs manufactured before December 2010. Cribs manufactured between December 2010 and June 28, 2011, must have a certificate of compliance and not be recalled to be consigned with Rhea Lana's. Any crib manufactured after June 28, 2011, and has not been recalled, can be consigned as long as it meets Rhea Lana's quality standards.
