Details about HVR's first ever sale! It is time to make room for inventory additions. There are some big pieces coming in this fall and HVR needs space!
Plan to visit us along the shores of Lake Huron in the town of Goderich.
HVR will be on-site at Dunlop Livery Antiques at 34002 Blyth Road. Take HWY 21 North from Goderich. You will see Cal (our white delivery truck) and the great barn of Dunlop Livery Antiques. I hear that the antique barn just might have a special sale that day too.
Sundays are Flea Market Days on The Square in Goderich too. After you load up with goodies from HVR's tail gate sale and Dunlop Livery Antiques, you can shop some more in Goderich.
Such a whirlwind of fabulous events this month. Weddings, mitzvahs and toddlers' birthdays! If you have not been keeping tabs on our vintage rental activities on Facebook, here is a little update from the last two weeks.
Yesterday HVR was so happy to be on site with some of our favourite wedding colleagues. Mimosa Flower Studios
out-witted the heat yesterday with an outstanding display of flowers.
It is always nice to work with a wedding planner again because that means we must be doing something right! Kate, from Little White Dress
, was at the top of her game yesterday and all the details kept her hopping. She did a great job and hopefully she is resting up this afternoon. See you in October Kate for a wedding at Berkeley
. And much to our surprise we spotted The Cake Museum
and had a quick catch-up with the master artist, Ida. It was our first time at Alton Mill
and we can't wait to go back. HVR has so many vintage props that fit in nicely with the venue.
The mis-matched chairs looked great and I was surprised at how well they mixed in with over 50 chivari chairs that had to be brought in as well. Over 150 chairs were set-up in one of the galleries and quickly moved by the HVR team after the ceremony to the tent for dinner. Click Photography
was there to capture it all and I'm sure she will post some pics soon on her blog. See you in July Chris!

The mis-matched chairs made their debut a couple of weeks ago at Ravine Vineyard
in Niagara for a beautiful ceremony. The rain (and wind) kept us under the tent but the view of the vineyards was outstanding plus the rain made everything look so fresh. Fleurish Design Studio's
floral arrangements were gorgeous. It was a treat to finally meet Jessica and we look forward to working with her again later in August. We can't wait to see the photos from this celebration of love by Kristen Weaver

HVR is also busy styling back drops for wedding photos and engagement sessions. The weather posed a few challenges, like how can we hang a chandelier in a tree when it is pouring outside? (Thankfully a beautiful wrap-around veranda saved the day) And it isn't just about weddings. It was great to work along side Angela from A to Z Event Management again last weekend to pull off a spectacular bat mitzvah celebration for Rebecca. I have never been surrounded by so many beautiful flowers before and I had to take a deep breath before I started dismantling the arrangements to use in the vintage canning jars and sap buckets. I got over it pretty quickly after seeing the final whimsical results.

I adore bunting. I must say that it is one of my favourite things. I never really knew about it until a couple of years ago. It quickly captured my heart. I simply love it.
Bunting isn't new to the party circuit. It is such an easy way to continue the colour theme, add texture and fill the eye with a sense of celebration. Originally created during the 17th century as a type of material used to create flags. Today, bunting is simply a string of fabric.
HVR was asked to create custom bunting for an event this spring. Although I love to sew, I certainly do not have the talent to create perfect double sided triangles strung together. I enlisted the creativity of a wonderful local sewing talent who pulled together an amazing assortment of fabrics and sourced another great company to create the perfect lettering as per the client's specifications.
We had so much fun creating it and the client adored it that I decided HVR should offer custom bunting. We need a bit of lead time to create these beautiful strings of fabric. I am partial to the fabric rather than paper and let me tell you, bunting knocks those tissue paper pom-poms out of the park (don't get me wrong, I love those Martha Steward inspired tissue pom-poms).
To order, just send me an email. info @ hazlittvintagerental.com We need total length of the space you want to fill, colours and a few more details that we can discuss over email. HVR will produce a quote for you to review and we can proceed with booking. Bunting can be mailed!
We can produce bunting of any size, shape and length.
Fabrics are sourced, we try to use vintage, when available. Let us know your colours and we will start the search.
All HVR bunting is double sided.
Custom printing, in almost any font and almost any colour, is available.
Take a look below at how the different fonts are display on the flags.
Here are a few more pics of some bunting that was recently created and how it was used at an event.
