The Tent Merchant provided our wedding linens and loveseat. The rentals were amazing and Joey was a pleasure to work with. She really went the extra mile to reach out to our planner to ensure we had the correct linen dimensions. They helped us bring our wedding vision to life. :) Would highly recommend!

John, Sherine and the entire Tent Merchant team was a dream to work with. Not only were all of our rentals high quality, they truly cared about making sure our Wedding was everything we wanted and went above and beyond working with us. They were always responsive to our questions over the phone, email or in person and made the setup a breeze!

Very friendly staff members and a great selection for the ceremony and reception! We just need chairs for the ceremony and though they have different types to choose from, I wish they didn't have an added delivery fee when we're getting married so close to their store yet have to pay quite a bit extra just for the delivery and pick up. But everyone says this is the place to go and they do seem very helpful, so we're going with it! :)

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!

I love working with the Tent Merchant team! They are professional, polite, knowledgable, flexible, and positive. I am consistently impressed with their attention to detail and client-centric focus. Definitely my preferred rental company vendor in Santa Barbara.

The tent merchant has very different linens & many things to choose from If your looking for classic linens they are great Tamara

The Tent Merchant has always been wonderful to work with, they come highly recommended by The Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara!!
