Q: What exactly are Specialty Rentals?
A: Any item that will make your guests say “Wow!” We love finding unique pieces that will make your event special to you. Some of our pieces are vintage and some are new, but they are all unique! We have vintage couches, tables, chairs, china, lace, and so much more that we would love to use to make your event stand out from all the others. What we don’t have are white linens, round tables, and plastic folding chairs, as all of our pieces are unique.
Q: How do you save a wishlist on the website?
