Q & A

send us a message if you aren't finding what you're looking for

What do you do exactly?  We rent our items in our inventory to people who weddings, photographers, and anyone else who wants unique and vintage props for their event. Please note we are not event coordinators/planners.

How does it work? After you have used the inquiry form or emailed us at to tell us what items you want, we create a custom proposal for you. If you want to proceed, you secure the rental items with a 25% retainer payment. When it's time for your event, our team will be on site to deliver all the goodies you selected.   

What time increments can an item be rented?  Hourly and Daily rates are available currently. 

How much is this going to cost?  Our pricing varies by piece. We have put together a guide to give some insight on what to expect. We do have minimum orders in place and those range from $350 for the Tri-Cities and $500 for the Knoxville area. 

How do I secure items?! Is there a deposit? We require a non-refundable retainer of 25% of the total rental fee to lock in a rental reservation. The remaining amount is due 30 days prior to your event date. If you schedule a rental and the event is in less than 30 days, the total is due at booking. 

What if it rains? The Little Prop Shop rentals are not weather-proofed, therefore, we require clients to provide a back-up plan for any outdoor events.

What if I damage an item?  If an item is damaged while in your care, we require you to stop using that item and call us immediately. If an item is completely destroyed while in your care, you will be billed for 10 times the rental rate of that item and payment will be due within 5 days. Damages include but are not limited to: staining of any kind to upholstery, broken legs on furniture, and rips or tears to upholstery fabric.

If our upholstery is stained while in your care, please find out what the stain is from and call us immediately. By doing so, we may be able to correct the stain before it becomes damaged beyond repair. Sofa cleaning Rate: $250 | Loveseat Rate: $150 | Chair: $100.  These prices are reflective of quotes received from local upholstery cleaning companies. We reserve the right to choose the company who cleans our items. There is an extra fee for weekend cleanings.

What is the cancellation policy? Please let us know ASAP if you must cancel a rental reservation. All payments made will be considered liquidated damages to The Little Prop Shop and non-refundable.
