Sellwood Vintage Rental is located in the Sellwood-Moreland neighborhood of Portland, OR. We offer vintage mix-and-match fine china, mid-century dinnerware, flatware, serving ware, table decor, small furniture, props, etc., for weddings, dinner parties, showers and other special events – or for vintage set styling and design.
We are an excellent choice for small DIY events.
About 20 years ago, a friend of mine was getting married. She was a no frills DIY kind of gal. Her floral arrangements were easily handled, because she worked at a nursery. But her plan for the reception was to have a bunch of pizzas delivered and to eat on paper plates. While I didn’t have a problem with the pizza -because yum, pizza – the whole paper plate thing didn’t sit well with me. I made a deal with her, to give me her plate budget and let me handle the table settings. I used my own set of Noritake china (handed down from my grandmother) and rounded up all the rest of the china, glasses, and flatware they needed. The pizza buffet wound up being adorable. (I also talked her into adding some hors d’oeuvres, but that’s another story).
And that is how this all started for me.
Please contact Robyn if you would like to visit my showroom (*cough* garage) and reserve any of our vintage treasures for your special event.
Fun Fact: Several of my items can be seen on the FX television show ‘The Americans’.
