About | Southern Charm Vintage Rentals

Hi friends, my name is Hayley Windross! So happy you are here.


As a past client of Southern Charm Vintage Rentals, I first came across this business owned by Kathie in 2019 while searching for our own wedding details. After postponing the date twice, and then welcoming our baby girl Briar in 2021, my husband Blake and I finally had our dream wedding last year.


That summer, I sourced and refinished many of my own decor, and found myself loving and enjoying the whole process. Blake and I planned, setup and styled every detail of our big day and seeing everything come together with all of SCVRs beautiful pieces had me considering a little side business of my own.


After getting to know Kathie and learning that she planned to sell SCVR in the fall, I felt like the opportunity was meant for me and the timing was perfect. I am so grateful that she saw something in us and trusted me to carry on the legacy of her business and take ownership of all the unique treasures she has accumulated over the past 11 years. 


My background as an Art Director with 14 years of design experience allows me to offer some exciting new services! I am running things as usual, with the same full inventory plus some fun new additions, but most importantly I will be offering calligraphy and day-of wedding stationery design and printing. Delivery, setup and styling are still part of our offerings. 


We can’t wait to help you decorate and style your own special day and look forward to seeing all your ideas come to fruition! I’m super passionate about the business and look forward to what’s in store for us this year!

Thank you so much for helping me in creating my vision for Aurora’s first birthday! I was overwhelmed with all your beautiful treasures and could have spent hours deciding, but you kept me focused and on budget. Thank you again Southern Charm Vintage Rentals for being a part of my princess’s special day!

Thank you so much for the set up, it looked beautiful!!!  We received quite a few compliments. : )  And the wedding itself turned out better than we even hoped for.  I’ll be sure to send you pictures once I receive them from my photographer.  We were quite pleased on how everything looked at the venue.

All the best,

Hi Kathie,

I just wanted to say thanks again for everything you helped with to make our wedding that much more special! It was a beautiful June day that honestly could not have been any better! ”

Everything was just perfect! Although I didn’t get to taste much, the guests devoured it all (Thanks Jeannie and Galaxy)! And everyone raved about how beautiful the sweet table and receiving table were.  Kathie, you were an absolute joy to work with and you really went out of your way to make sure everything was exactly how I envisioned it would be.

It is with great honour that I share these stunning images from a styled photoshoot I got to style and photograph this past Spring. I had the pleasure of working with some of Toronto’s finest wedding vendors and I’m so excited to finally share it with you all. Special thanks to Kathie from Southern Charm Vintage Rentals who helped me in every step of the way – I will be forever grateful to you!

We rented chalkboards, tubs, tables and more from Southern Charm Vintage Rentals for our big day in June. From the day we walked into Kathie’s showroom, I knew that we were in the right place. Kathie carries nothing but beautiful pieces for a great rental price! She can help you style your event down the smallest detail or is willing to let you come up with your own ideas and run with it! Pick up, drop off and communication before and after were amazing. I’m already trying to think of the next even where I will need to rent some beautiful antiques. Thank you, Kathie, for all that you did. Our day was beautiful and were were proud to share your beautiful items with our guests!

Hi Kathie,
I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything! You have been so amazing to work with over the past year. I feel like I emailed you every other day with another request LOL! You gave me great advice and provided us with such cute decor items. I received so many compliments on the decor and everyone said that we included so many nice touches and cute details. I know that your rental items were a big part of that! I cannot wait to throw a shower or a party in the future so I can rent more of your items! I attached a few pictures that one of my guests took at the wedding. We haven’t received our professional pictures yet.
Once again, thank you SO SO much. You truly made our day so incredibly special!
