Q. So how does this all work?

Q. What are the prices?

A.   Our rentals are priced individually, as specific sets or as packages giving you the opportunity to choose what works for your special day. All of the items have the prices listed on the specific inventory page. (Find our unique Rental Inventory here.) We can also create custom packages if you’d rather that we put something together for you, including styling & design, for an additional fee. See our Services pages for more info. Contact us directly for any further inquiries.


Our rates are assessed “per event”, which we consider to be a maximum of 48 hours, allowing half a day for delivery & setup, a full day for the event & half a day for take-down & return. Longer-term rates are available upon request. Late returns are subject to additional charges. Unless you have confirmed your order with a 50% deposit, prices are subject to change at anytime.

Q. How do I reserve items from your rental inventory?

Q. Do you offer delivery?

Charges for delivery start at $95 within the foothills region for small items. A minimum rental order of $350 is required for us to deliver. Higher minimums are required for the Bay Area & parts of Northern California. Please inquire for a specific quote.


Because of the fragile & delicate nature of our vintage & antique pieces, not all of them make good travel partners, so require our delivery team handle them. Please inquire for specific details.


Delivery fees assume the rental items are being delivered to a level area within 25 feet from the delivery vehicle. Additional labor fees may be assessed for delivery or pick-up of orders that are further than 25 feet from the delivery vehicle, involve carrying the items up or down stairs, or require substantial time or effort when delivering or picking-up.


At the time of pickup, all rental items must be broken down & placed in the same central location in which it was delivered unless other arrangements are made prior to your event. Items must be in the same (or sufficient) packaging material as when they were dropped off. Items not ready for pickup when scheduled will be subject to additional hourly fees.

Q. Can I pick up my rentals from your studio?

A.   Approved items can be picked up directly at our warehouse in Grass Valley, California with the proper transportation for your order. We have a $250 rental minimum for these pick ups. Your order will be packed & ready, we simply ask that you return all original packaging materials such as totes, bins, mason jar boxes & bubble wrap or a replacement fee will be assessed. Be prepared to load your own vehicle, although we will assist in getting items to your vehicle.


Because of the fragile & delicate nature of our vintage & antique pieces, not all of them make good travel partners. For that reason we do not allow our clients to pickup certain rentals from our warehouse. We may approve another industry professional to pickup an item based on prior approval in which case we would need to be contacted requesting this permission by the time of final payment. Really, we just want to make sure that all of our items are transported safely & make it back to us in the condition that they left.


If will-call rental items are not picked up within the timeframe noted on the Invoice & arrangements have not been made in advance, a $25 off-hour/reschedule surcharge will be assessed.

A.   We know that you may have changes to your order, especially if reserving early. Should you wish to cancel a portion of your rental items or make substitutions, the total fee shall not decrease by more than 10% of your total rental fees. There are no refunds for cancellations of items made less than 30 days prior to your event date. Keep in mind that our rentals are one-of-a-kind & may not be available for your date.

Q. Do items need to be returned clean?

A.   All serving ware, dessert trays, cake stands, dinner & drinkware come to you clean & ready to use. We ask that all dishware & food service items be scraped free of food immediately after use, dumped of liquids  & packed in their original containers.


All other items should be returned clean to avoid a cleaning fee, which may include professional cleaning fees on upholstered items. Fees vary depending on extent of cleaning required. We simply ask that you return all original packaging materials such as totes, bins & bubble wrap or a replacement fee will be assessed. 

Q. What happens if an item is damaged?

A.   We understand that life includes mishaps now & then. The customer is responsible for items from the time of delivery until the time of pick-up. In the case of will call items, the customer is responsible from the time of pick-up until the time of return. Please ensure that items are secure at all times & protected from the weather. We charge for broken, damaged or missing items including missing equipment such as totes, containers & moving supplies. Fees for non-repairable or missing items will be assessed on a case-by-case basis & are charged to the credit card on file. Replacement fees vary according to each item & are available upon request. If an item is able to be cleaned or repaired, you will only be charged for the cleaning or repair of the item & for any rentals missed while the item is out of our inventory.


Damaged or missing items must be reported prior to the event or the items will be considered received & in good condition.
