We are Mari & Kyle, the founders of Something Old Dayton, a boutique rental company here in Dayton, Ohio offering vintage, modern and eclectic treasures for weddings, events and photo shoots!
We live in a beautiful 100 year old home in Dayton, but we hail from Virginia! Mari has a background in art and design, and Kyle is an engineer with the heart of a handyman. We have 2 energetic little boys and 2 kitties!
Something Old was a just dream for us in 2015, when a seed was planted in our hearts for a creative venture we could pursue as a family. Mari was greatly pregnant with our second child, Wyatt, and had very little interest in starting a business at the time, but Kyle is a dreamer and an entrepreneur at heart and got the ball rolling while we welcomed Wyatt into the world in December of 2015. We decorated our first event in March 2016 (1 year ago!), Mari was reacquainted with her love of stylign and decorating and we flung ourselves into our baby business with both fear and joy.
Antique lovers both of us, we slowly began to fill our basement with treasures to share with brides and grooms in southwestern Ohio. We quickly outgrew our home for storage and began looking for additional space where we could meet clients, and that's when we found our now warehouse studio just a half mile away from home! Things have snowballed in the year since we moved in and now our studio is in high demand with local photographers, videographers and those looking for unique spaces to host private parties. We are planning new and exciting things for 2017 and we are excited for you to follow along on our journey!
