1. REGISTER TO BE A CONSIGNOR at www.wichita.rhealana.com. Once you are
on our homepage, click on the Sign Up Be a Consignor Tab. You will be prompted to
complete the information and answer some questions.
2. GATHER CLOTHING, SHOES & ACCESSORIES TO SELL. Clothing is seasonal for
each event. We will be accepting spring and summer clothing, including jeans and light weight jackets.
3. GATHER BABY EQUIPMENT, INDOOR & OUTDOOR TOYS & HOUSEHOLD ITEMS.
We sell over 95% of these items at our sales. They are big money makers! Examples
of these items are: strollers, highchairs, cribs, pack and plays, swings, bikes, wagons,
jumpers, toys, Power Wheels, outdoor toys, furniture, etc.
4. PREP YOUR CLOTHING ITEMS. There are detailed instructions on our website
under the Merchandise Preparation tab. Once you get going, this is very easy to do!
5. PREP YOUR BIG ITEMS. Make sure your toys have batteries and are cleaned up.
Remember, these are big sellers and the better they look the better they sale!
6. ENTER & PRICE YOUR ITEMS. You will do this on our website. Just follow the easy
instructions to get going. The great thing about our software is that you can work at
your own pace and save your information as you go. This allows you to price at your
own convenience. A good rule of thumb for pricing is about 25% of the retail price for clothing and 30-40% for big toys and equipment. Infant clothes are in abundance and should be priced competitively.
7. PLACE TAGS ON YOUR ITEMS. You will find these tags at Wal-Mart of Office
Depot. If you are unable to find any, contact us. You will need the 1 ¾ inch x 1 3/32 inch string tags.
