Our Team

We clean it.  We store it. We pull it.  We pack it. We unpack it. 

We clean it. We store it. For one rental price.

Our team has elevated schlepping to an art form.

Because nobody like dirty, dinged up rentals at their event.

Favorite memory: Love late night retrievals. Everyone’s so happy. There once was a father of a bride sitting at our table & chair that we were picking up with 3 drinks in front of him. Told him i needed the table & chair but would let him finish his drinks and grab those pieces last. by that time he was passed out. bride came over, she and i took dad to a venue chair and propped him up..she thanked me for helping her with her dad. Second week there and hooked ever since.

The Relics Rentals Difference

Think Anthropologie meets Martha Stewart! The antithesis of plain vanilla rentals has arrived. From church pews, to backdrops and farm tables, from vintage glamour to modern industrial with a rock ‘n’ roll edge, we’ve got the goods to fit any design aesthetic and whatever event or project idea you’ve dreamed up. With a warehouse full of affordable details that provide beauty and inspiration to our clients, we’re truly a destination for event designers, art directors, stylists, brides, party hosts, planners, film & video producers, commercial photographers, and more!.

As a boutique specialty rental company and prop house located in the heart of Milwaukee, we maintain a carefully curated inventory of gorgeous and distinctive furniture, decor, dishware, and details both grand and small. We’re the ace up your sleeve with our unrivaled selection of goods for creating one-of-a-kind visual displays and unforgettable events: from intimate soirees to epic galas, from trade shows to residential & commercial staging, from styled shoots to theater. From conceptualization to execution, our creative team is ready to assist and support you to ensure your event or display will be full of adventure and oozing with originality using our extensive treasures of upcycled, reclaimed, and repurposed inventory.

An event planner with no time for the decor details? We can handle it. A stylist with no clue which direction to take? Look no further. A photographer in which styling is not your thing? We rock at it! A bride with pinterest overload? We can cure it. A hostess who loves to entertain but hates to clean the dishes? We’ve got you covered. We live for this stuff!

We’re here to make this as easy as possible.

Relics’ clients have a love for the unexpected. Some seek distinctive pieces for their forward-thinking celebrations. Some just trust us to tell their story by creating unforgettable environments: whether it’s building a glorious backdrop for your ceremony, putting together a swanky lounge area for your guests, or setting up your elegant reception pulling from our extraordinary tabletop collection that spans continents and time periods. Relics Vintage Rentals is at your service for one feature of your event or the whole dang affair.

Let this be the beginning of your Relics experience.

Using Relics for our wedding was an absolute dream. Mary was lovely, energetic, and helpful on the phone. Kelly was incredibly organized and friendly. Going to the warehouse was so much fun! The team knocked it out of the park! They delivered everything and picked it up with no hiccups….and the actual pieces we rented!! They were STUNNING!!! We used Relics for two lounge sets, rugs, table decor, goblets, and serving platters. I will never ever get over how gorgeous everything looked. One of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

Highly recommend! A special request made my wedding stand out from the rest. Thank you for going thru the hassle of count the darker blue, not bright blue, glasses!!! The staff was kind and helpful.

– Brooke

I’m a fellow wedding vendor in Milwaukee and I’ve worked with Relics on several occasions to rent various frames, easels and other decor for my own clients. Their collection of vintage goods helps elevate our design and print work to the next level! The entire crew at Relics is responsive, helpful and has a keen eye for styling. I’d highly recommend their services to couples as well as other vendors!

– Ashley

They saved my daughters wedding! When we found out that the vendor that we rented tables from was just not showing up to weddings that he was contracted for with only 3 weeks before the wedding we contacted Relics and they provided everything we needed very quickly and and a great price! Excellent communication and perfect pieces! I recommend them very highly!
