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 and have been building our little dream one year at a time. We both hold full time jobs as well as operate a small scale mowing business during the summer months. It gets a little busy around here. We enjoy vacationing along Hwy 30A in Florida and spoiling our 2 standard poodles. We are currently restoring a first generation Ford Bronco in our spare time that we hope to enjoy riding in during the warm months here in East TN.
The Little Prop Shop - Vintage Rentals got started in October 2015 after spending countless hours on Pinterest. Idea after idea popped up and we created a plan. We weren't aware of anyone who offered such a thing in our area so we jumped in with both feet first and started our search for the perfect items to add to our collection. With several entrepreneurs in Courtney's family and her background in accounting the idea of starting a small business felt natural to her. James's keen eye for design and knowledge of building has become one of our biggest assets so far.
It's hard to believe we have been on this exciting journey for almost THREE years now! In that time we have doubled our inventory and client base. We love meeting new people and building personal and professional relationships along the way! We have enjoyed every minute of it and can't wait to see what the next couple years holds. In 2018, we are building our wedding inspired inventory to include custom ceremony backdrops and specialty one-of-a-kind pieces that you can't get "down the road".
