***NEW THIS SALE ***
We are no longer accepting Car Seats or Booster Seats
The safety of the children in our community comes first. After much consideration, we have decided to no longer sell any type of car seat or booster seat. In order to ensure that the seats are in the best shape possible, we are encouraging our customers to buy these items new. Thank you for understanding.
ITEM LIMIT UPDATES
In order to keep our inventory high-end and of the highest quality we are limiting consignors to 50 INFANT clothing items (0-12months) per consignor code. Please carefully check your things and bring your best!
An entire outfit is only considered one item as long as it can be sold together. This new limit ONLY encompasses infant clothing.
Our fall 2014 sale featured nearly 25,000 high-quality children's items at unbeatable prices. We are so thankful for each of our consignors, shoppers and volunteers. In our NEW large, convenient location we anticipate more items, fantastic prices and an unbeatable shopping experience. We would love to have you join up as a shopper, consignor, volunteer worker...or better yet, all three!
Rhea Lana's of Ankeny-Des Moines is a semi-annual consignment sale event of HIGH QUALITY children's clothes, shoes, toys, books, DVDs, baby items, gently used maternity clothes and much much more. Consignors enter their items into our easy to use online system, prepare and price their own items, and make 70% of all items that are purchased during the week of the sale. Consignors can review their sales online throughout the week and then pick up their check on the final day, along with their unsold items. We GUARANTEE all items (i.e. if an unsold item is not returned, then we will pay the consignor 70% of the price of that item).
Oh, and the best part?
