Our Story

Meet Cathy, Kevin, Betsy & Ryan

Cathy…

Born and raised in Delafield, Wisconsin. My parents were preservers of the past with a house full of family antiques. I saw Kevin in 6th grade playing baseball for another school and told a girlfriend that I was going to marry him. By high school he figured it out too (Thank goodness!!). We started collecting vintage items and antiques after high school and we have never slowed down. Ask any family member what we do and they will say, “they go antiquing.” Our home is filled with one collection after another. We had started to panic that we would have to stop buying as we are out of room. Our daughter saved us! She decided to have a rustic vintage wedding. So we collected more treasures only to realize we would have to store even more. Family and friends loved the decorating at the wedding so much, they joked that we should go into business…next thing we knew Vintique Rental was born. I could have never dreamed that I would combine a dental hygiene career and the running of a speciality rental company.

Kevin…

Raised on a farm near Genesee Depot, Wisconsin. I spent most of my youth combing our property and surrounding areas for anything old…..bottles, architectural finds, coins, and other treasures. So when Cathy and I were planning our future, antiques seemed like a no brainer. We love a good deal and that usually means that most things we buy need repairing, stripping, or an overhaul of some kind. I have learned how to repair almost anything, as well as to visualize possible creations. (Which is not an easy task!) I have a sales background which comes in handy when dealing on our treasures.

Betsy…

Raised in North Lake, Wisconsin by my antiquing parents….Cathy & Kevin. My brother Jameson and I had no choice but to like antiques. I never knew anything else. I even decorated my apartment at college with antiques. I am a full time kindergarten teacher as well as Vintique’s full time techy and custom writer. My parents like to refer to me as the “boss.”

Ryan…

Raised in Hartland, Wisconsin. I grew up playing all types of sports and spending time outdoors. I was always ready to explore and pitch in on projects. I met Betsy and knew she was the one for me. She loved to drag me to flea markets and antique shops. I have always loved nature and appreciated rustic and natural design elements. So when we decided to get married, we knew we had to blend our styles. I continue to spend my days working outside as a landscaper and a tree trimmer. I married into Vintique and have become the wood supplier, the muscle and all round helper.

The four of us make a great team. We are very excited about this business and are all more than willing to work hard to make your special event extraordinary!
