"Susan was incredible to work with for our big day! Leading up to the day, she helped us pick out pieces that would work perfect for the vision we had. All of her furniture pieces are so well taken care of and truly add a beautiful, unique touch to any event. Susan and her team were very organized with delivery, set up, and pick up that we hardly even saw them day of. I highly recommend Gertrude & Evelyn for any rental needs."

"Susan was amazing to work with. We were able to go to her studio to look at all of her inventory- she has so much to choose from which is amazing! She had everything set up on time and made sure everything was exactly as we had discussed. Susan communicated great leading up to and offering pictures of items I wanted to add on right before the wedding. Her vintage furniture and accessories helped finish off the vision I had for our wedding. I highly recommend Susan with Gertrude & Evelyn!"

"Susan from Gertrude and Evelyn rentals helped make our wedding SO special. She was extremely helpful from the first email. She was prompt with responding and had answers to my many questions. She was professional, kind, and had an amazing collection that really elevated our wedding. I can't thank her enough and I highly recommend her for your wedding or event! And fun to work with! Thank you for offering some laughs during what could have been a stressful wedding planning year!"

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.
