BHL Vendor Hot Pick: Found Vintage Rentals

bridal-hot-list-vendor-hot-pickI know sometimes when Monday’s roll around, it is really hard to get going and start the week off. I mean, you have to say goodbye to the weekend, and hello to a work week. But when you have a fabulous new vendor added to our “Vendor Hot Picks”, Monday just became my favorite day of the week. I am talking about a vendor who seriously knows how to impress. One that has me swooning over all the amazing details they have to offer. All courtesy of Found Vintage Rentals. I had the pleasure of visiting the fantastic warehouse where all the magical genius happens. I was so enraptured by all the charming and inspiring details, I could not turn my eyes away.  I did not want to miss one single item. But I know I did…there was THAT many fabulous things that had my vintage loving heart swooning the whole time. I have to admit…I kind of wanted to sneak and hide behind one of the lovely couches and live there. If I could. Yep, that is how much I am in love with Found Vintage Rentals.

I have always been a huge fan of vintage, but after today, I will forever be a fan of Found Vintage Rentals.  Oh, you will see why in a second when you browse through all the gorgeousness.

Each piece in the Found Vintage Rentals collection is hand-picked for its charm and history. The collection at Found has been rented for special events such as weddings, birthday parties, and corporate meetings as well as church retreats and trade shows. The curated objects add personality and a one-of-a-kind look to photo shoots, pop-up shops, family portrait sessions, and film sets. As the pioneer in vintage rentals, Jeni’s unique style, unlimited creativity, and impeccable taste continue to lead the industry. Whether renting a single statement piece or roomfuls of furniture and accessories, Found’s clients seek distinctive pieces to add warmth and personality to their celebrations and sets.
