We have so many things going on in the Rhea Lana family (over 74 franchises now!), it's fun to gather in the off-season and celebrate our growing company. Last week over 70 owners from across the country gathered in Little Rock, Arkansas, at our Annual Owner's Conference. Lots of great information was shared by these smart owners about how to make the most of their businesses. Our owners are all different; some are single moms, some are professional women, some are stay at home moms, but all have helping their families and serving their communities in common.

Happy Mother's Day! It's the day we all have in common and we're happy to know so many awesome moms and grandmoms in the River Valley!

Don't let anyone tell you your children are already set in their ways, fully developed or beyond help. YOU ARE THEIR MOM. You are THE ONE who can impress anything on their little hearts, you were CHOSEN to be their guardian, the keeper of their heart! It's never too late, and you can do it!

Have you heard?  Rhea Lana's has something new available for the first time in the consignment industry.  You can use our new smart phone page to enter items anywhere.  Rhea Lana's is now offering item entry through your smart phone - either by hand or using the voice recognition feature.  Using voice recognition, consignors can enter items with ease by speaking the details of the specific piece into their phone for translation and entry.  This means consignors will no longer need access to a computer to enter items.  Smart phone item entry also means more mobility and productivity.
