With as many vintage items as I have collected over the years (like over 70 vintage mason jars, a 7 foot long fainting couch, windows, display pieces, furniture, etc...), I am in the process of offering up some of these unique items for event rentals. I don't know if you have noticed, but there has been an Event Rentals tab at the top of my blog for a very long time...yet, I haven't done much with it.
I recently had to move from a small storage unit to a larger one (yep it's that bad), but with the larger space I have more room to see the items I actually have. At one time I had soooo much more, before it was all stolen. Yes, I was robbed and they took EVERYTHING...all my vintage china, columns, windows and doors from old farm houses in Iowa, tables, chairs, linens, furniture, chandeliers, etc...all of it. Yet, I have slowly been collecting things again, and think I have finally reached a point where I feel that I have enough (although still not a lot) that I can do it.
I so wish I had known about the workshop that Jeni Maus, of Found Vintage Rentals just had...I would have been the first to sign up. I am hoping at one point she will offer another one, and I will be sure I attend. Take a look at her studio where the workshop took place...
Maybe one day, I will be able to move out of a storage unit and into a studio myself...hmmm I am dreaming big here...but maybe, one day. I'll just have to wait and see.
In the meantime, if you see anything in my Tuesday Thought posts or my Homemade posts that I do on Thursday's, and live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and would like to rent for an event...then let me know at email@example.com! I would be more than willing to assist you ;-)
And don't hesitate to contact me if you see anything I make and are interested in ordering. I am working on setting up my Etsy shop for custom orders.
