Hi! We are Courtney and James and we love all things vintage. We are both natives to the Tri Cities region of Tennessee and graduates of East Tennessee State University. We were married on June 8, 2013 after graduation and have been building our little dream one year at a time since then. We both hold full time jobs and James operates a small scale mowing business during the summer months. We enjoy vacationing along Hwy 30A in Florida and spoiling our 2 standard poodles.
The Little Prop Shop - Vintage Rentals got started in October 2015 after spending countless hours on Pinterest looking through all of those dream-like photos. I saw little ballerina's twirling around a carousel horse in an open field and a retro camper backdrop for Christmas pictures and wished that could be offered to our local photographers. I wasn't aware of anyone who offered such a thing in our area so we jumped in with both feet. There are several entrepreneurs in Courtney's family so the idea seemed natural to start a small business.
It's hard to believe we have been on this exciting journey for almost TWO years now! In that time we have doubled our inventory and client base. We have enjoyed every minute of it and can't wait to see what the next couple years holds. In 2017, we are building our wedding inspired inventory to include custom ceremony backdrops and specialty one-of-a-kind pieces.
