    So easy to work with for beautiful rentals

    We loved working with The Tent Merchant for our rentals. They did our dance floor, chairs and tabletop items and they did a beautiful job. We had a mixup with the pickup and the owner, Shareen, could not have been more lovely. She was responsive and helpful and I cannot recommend Tent Merchant enough!

    Went Off without a Hitch!

    From start to finish, working with The Tent Merchant for our wedding was a pleasure! Long-distance wedding planning is not an easy task but Lilly was absolutely wonderful in guiding me through my selections and had saint-like patience dealing with the many times I changed my mind and requested various quotes. Everything went off without a hitch and I know that wouldn't have been possible without their dedication to organization and professionalism!

As a wedding/event planner in Santa Barbara, I've worked with The Tent Merchant for over 10 years - and I recommend them every time! Their staff are friendly and helpful, and they have worked at every event space in the Santa Barbara/Santa Ynez area. If you have questions about how to make an event space the best it can be, The Tent Merchant can help. They have high quality rentals at a reasonable price, and a large inventory which is most helpful. I adore working with Kirsten and the entire TM staff!
