A Little Bit About Us

About Us

It all started with a vision.

A little About us… Urban Antiquities offers a collection of vintage and handmade items for rent. We love giving new life to each piece for people to enjoy again and again. The concept for the business started years ago as my college capstone project. Today, the business represents an assortment of eclectic and vintage finds, hand-made pieces and custom designed paper-goods that all offer true character and personality.

We revamp old, tired items into beautiful pieces that showcase their original character and charm. We successfully represent a greener way to shop; where appreciation for custom details, fine craftsmanship and the patina of an era gone by are not forgotten.

What better way to show your style than with one-of-a-kind pieces that make a statement about your great taste! Perfect for photo shoots, weddings and other events – we’re sure you’ll find something you love in our inventory.

In addition to one-of-a-kind rentals, Urban Antiquities also offers an assortment of paper-goods and stationery perfect for any event. Show your true feelings with a hand-written card or an adorable art print. Shop our stationery collections or talk to us about a custom design that allows you to really show off who you are and your personal style. We offer unique designs to fit any style.

FLEA MARKET FANATIC & CREATIVE EXTRAORDINAIRE.

I enjoy helping my friends and family in any way I can – I’m their go-to for design advice, bargain-hunting and decorating. I have a knack for it. My favorite way to spend a Saturday is sipping coffee while sifting through junk at the local antique shop or flea market… what started out as a hobby has really become a passion… The character and custom feel of hand-crafted goods is slowly disappearing and I’d love to make a difference from my small corner of the design spectrum. I really feel that in a world of mass production, it’s easy to get lost in an abundance of pre-fab goods. Please don’t fall into that category! My ultimate goal for Urban Antiquities is to be an affordable option that truly offers one-of-kind pieces and designs to show off your personality. Let me work with you to showcase your style at your special event!


MEET DANETTE.

PROJECT MASTERMIND AND MAKERISTA.

With several years under her belt as lead merchandiser for a local home décor and gift store, my mother has an array of design experience. Her true passion is crafting. She can reinvent almost anything but especially old, tired items (most people would call junk) into real treasures. My parent’s house is full of home-spun designs that showcase her creativity. Locally, she has sold her hand-crafted architectural finds over the last ten years. My mother never sits still, she’s always got a project going or an idea brewing. Her and my father love renovating, over the years they have owned and renovated a pasel of houses ranging from Victorian and Cape Cod to Ranch style. Not only does she like to decorate but she also loves the outdoors and creating outdoor living spaces along with landscaping. She is blessed with the gift of visualization and can navigate a master plan for any scale project! I love working with her and wouldn’t want to be in business with anyone else.
