"Our wedding venue (Mercantile Hall) was beautiful, but Susan at Gertrude and Evelyn took it OVER THE TOP! From the moment we met, she completely understood my vision. Our wedding had some of the most beautiful decor I have ever seen, and G&E made it happen. You can tell when someone in the wedding industry genuinely cares about what they do, and strives for perfection, and Susan is that person. Reasonable pricing and genuine care--a wedding rarity!"

"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.
