Jeni has collected vintage pieces for over 16 years. She lives for the “thrill of the hunt” and has developed a magnetism for amazing furniture and accessories. Over the years she has honed her eye. She is constantly discovering a “diamond in the rough;” she is always able to see beauty in things others discard.
In 2010, she began Found Vintage Rentals out of her passion for rad vintage furniture and desire to help brides express their style. With 13 years of experience in the wedding industry alongside her photographer husband Joel, Jeni has firsthand knowledge of what makes a wedding really spectacular.
At Hide & Seek, Jeni will share her vision for the collection at Found Vintage Rentals and give insights about how to develop a collection of your own. She’ll talk about how she developed the relationships, brand, and style she needed to grow Found so rapidly without spending thousands on advertising or marketing.
Allison Howell brings over 10 years of experience in the event industry to the team at Found. As a former invitation designer, she has a strong background in marrying creativity with business ownership. She’ll share the inside scoop about profitability, efficiency, and marketing to today’s bride.
Together Jeni & Allison will offer attendees at Hide & Seek a blueprint for a vintage rental business that thrives. They don’t have all the answers but they sure have learned a lot of lessons the hard way. Their insights will help you start your business off on the right foot.
