It all started after planning my own wedding. I really wanted my wedding to be unique (who doesn’t?) and I was going for a rustic/vintage feel. I couldn’t find anywhere that I could just rent a sofa or some chairs to use, and at the time I lived in a rowhome about the width of my arm span and there was no way that I was going to find a piece, store it and redo it in my little home! What would I do what with it after? That’s when the light bulb turned on!!! Why not start my own vintage furniture rental company? I’ve always loved vintage style; I graduated from college with a Fashion degree and was drawn to timeless eras which are easily replicated in furniture. I started doing my research, and started squirreling money away for this small business dream of mine. At the time, I was working and living the corporate life, it wasn’t until three years later that I felt secure in my finances and business plan that I took my “leap of faith” and started Carolina Charm. It was a well thought out plan that I discussed at nauseam with my husband, family and friends. I then took a deep breath and I quit my job of 8 + years and started my business. I have dedicated 100% my time to making to launching this business and making it successful!
