Rhea Lana's Presents Sioux City's New Kids' Consignment Event!

Pink circle with the letters R ad L and the words "Rhea Lana's of Siouxland"

This post is sponsored by Rhea Lana's of Siouxland, but I had actually already liked their page and signed up to consign before they ever contacted me about partnering with my blog to spread the word!

Have you ever seen the meme about it being customary for Midwesterners to explain, upon being complimented on an article of clothing, that they acquired it at a significant discount? Well, it's funny because it's true! Here in Siouxland, we know the value of hand-me-downs and how buying used items can save money and reduce waste. And Rhea Lana's plays into that perfectly! Here's how:

Rhea Lana is a children's consignment chain known for their high standards and guided by the saying "Moms helping Moms". That means community members can resell their used items there, and then Rhea Lana's pays the person who brought in the items (about 65 % if you label, price, and drop-off your items yourself, or 40% if you use Rhea Lana's VIP service to have your items picked up, labeled, and priced for you!). For shoppers, it means getting quality used children's items at a significant discount (about 60-90% off!) compared to buying new, and knowing that they will be clean, in-style, and in good condition. After the event, remaining items can be picked up by sellers along with their money, or donated if buyers choose that option. Siouxland Rhea Lana's is also opening their doors to foster families in our area to choose before the clothes are donated!

When will Rhea Lana's of Siouxland be open?

Rhea Lana's isn't a traditional store that is open 360ish days a year. Instead, they hold seasonal shopping events lasting about a week, twice a year. Before the sale opens, there is time for consigners to bring in their items and for Rhea Lana's staff to get the sale set up. Then, VIPs and sellers get early access to the sale, and then it will be opened to the general public for about a week.
The first event at Rhea Lana's of Siouxland will be the fall/winter 2019 event from September 28th through October 5th, 2019. The first day, Saturday, September 28th, will be open only with special tickets/passes, then starting Sunday, September 29th the event will be open to the public. Here are the special shopping times on Saturday:

Then starting Sunday, the public hours are:
  • Sun 9/29 1-5pm
  • Mon 9/30 10am-8pm
