Found Vintage Rentals:Jeni Maus

Domain featured a piece today on Jeni Maus, owner of Found Vintage Rentals. Maus sources treasured props for Southern California’s top private events, weddings, and film sets. 
"Maus has partnered with “pre-loved” furniture and décor marketplace Chairish, an easy way for design lovers to buy and sell furniture to each other, to host a blowout floor sale of her unique finds. From Union Jack flags and iron demijohn baskets to striped settees and distressed leather couches, the selections, which start at $150, are straight out of a fairy tale." Shop her collection here!
I would love to start my own collection of vintage furniture and decor items to rent out to wedding and event venues and movie sets in DC so I decided to email Jeni and ask her some questions on how she started out collecting her pieces and how she acquired clients to rent her items. I will post her answers if she ever writes me back! In the meantime I am going to start looking into renting out a warehouse to store all the vintage pieces I am going to buy! Sorry Joey....every day is a new idea!
