The temporary store accepts clothing (children, maternity and juniors), toys (indoor and outdoor), furniture (children and household), baby equipment, books, puzzles, video games/systems, DVDs, sports equipment and more. Consignors keep 70 to 80 percent of their total sales.
Consignors need to sign up and enter their items for sale online at honolulu.rhealana.com by Nov. 11 at noon. Merchandise is then dropped off Nov. 12 and 13, and a check along with your things that are not sold are to be picked up Nov. 21. You also can choose to donate your unsold items to The Lokahi Giving Project.
Rhea Lana’s was founded in 1997 by Rhea Lana Riner, a wife and mother of three, who hosted her first consignment sale in her living room in Conway, Ark. In 1998, Riner and her husband Dave, created a consignment sale barcoding and data entry system and hosted its first Web-based computerized children’s consignment event. In 2008, they started selling Rhea Lana’s Franchise packages, and have since grown with a total of 38 events in 15 states last year.
