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

***UPDATED to include Spring/Summer 2020 event details!***

This post was sponsored by Rhea Lana's of Siouxland in fall 2019, 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:

What is Rhea Lana's?

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 held was the fall/winter 2019 event from September 28th through October 5th, 2019.

The spring/summer 2020 event is being held from March 20th-March 28th, 2020, with exclusive shopping times starting on the 20th for those with platinum, gold, or silver tickets, and for consignors. There's also a special shopping time on the 21st for military, moms-to-be, and teachers!

Then starting Sunday, the sale will be open to the public.

Wow, a lot has changed since I first posted this! When I first started this post, the nearest outbreak of COVID-19 was one family in Omaha! Now, we have seen nearly everything in our tri-state area closed to try to flatten the curve, and the number of cases skyrocketed higher than many people thought possible, yet mercifully lower than many of the projection models. 
I did a major update on this post in June 2020 and a small update in July 2020, and it will now reflect what is re-opening in our area! I will try to keep it up to date, so check back for updates, but I do not run any of these organizations, and I encourage you to seek out their individual websites and social media to confirm closings that af…
