Rhea Lana's has always carried wonderful children's furniture. Our Benton-Bryant event is proud to do the same! Please contact Kim to ensure your item is appropriate. We are unable to accept any 'handmade' and 'handpainted' furniture, due to our safety requirements to confirm the craftmanship and materials used, along with the lack of manufacturer information for product recalls. In an effort to maintain excellent quality we will be very selective in the items we accept. All items must be assembled prior to arrival or at consignor check in. Assembled items will sell better during the event and the condition will be confirmed at check in.
