Fantastic wedding vendor! I would highly recommend. Susan has a large collection of all things vintage that fit perfectly with any wedding. She has a large warehouse of items that you can take a look through. We rented some furniture, candles, decor for our centerpieces, a large farm table, and some chairs that were the talk of the wedding. She has SO MUCH MORE. Susan comes to set up everything the morning of your wedding and then picksit up when you’re done with it. It’s so easy and totally worth renting! Susan is a wonderful woman and great to work with.

"I highly recommend Gertrude & Evelyn! Susan was one of my favorite vendors to work with! I found her early on and just knew I needed some of her furniture at my wedding. Meeting with her and seeing her inventory was so much fun! She has so many unique and beautiful pieces. We ended up renting two settees, two chests, wood blocks for the centerpieces, vintage plates and silverware. Everything was so perfect! It fit the vibe of our wedding perfectly. I hope to work with Susan again in the future. It was such a great experience!"

"We had the pleasure of working with Susan on the vintage place settings for our wedding at The Barn at Wagon Wheel Farm in Burlington, WI. Her products are incredibly unique and beautiful. Her vision is amazing in making the look truly eclectic and elegant. Susan made our day easy and worry-free. We are so lucky to have found this gem of a company to make our day extra amazing! We would recommend Gertrude & Evelyn to anyone!"

Antiques always have a story, and I have always loved mysteries. So I was naturally intrigued when I tagged along to my first estate sale with my mother. She was an avid antiquer, and often brought me along to auctions and estate sales where we would hunt for treasures side by side. That day I bought my first antique, a beautiful plate from Germany (for a whopping $0.25), quite a keen eye for only being 9 years old. Needless to say, my collection grew quickly, and my love for antiques didn’t fade. My collection of antiques grew over the last fifty years, to the point that I knew that I couldn’t keep them all to myself.
