In the month of May….

How may we help you? By keeping you covered.

When you rent a tent from Made in the Shade, you are know you are getting quality. Quality products. Quality services. Quality experiences. May is peak events season. The month will fly by in an instant. Believe it or not, almost all of our inventory is out on rent for the majority of the month. Keep in mind, we carry one of the largest selections of tenting in Northern California.

We’ve got you covered!

Mother’s Day

One of my favorite things about Made in the Shade is that it is a business that celebrates women. It is a company that was created by a woman, and not just any woman, but a mother. There are actually quite a few mothers that keep this place running behind-the-scenes, and this Mother’s Day, I think it is fitting to draw attention to these incredible women and give them some much needed recognition—even if it is just in my own little way.

It takes a special type of woman to be a working mother, and we are so grateful to have such a great group of strong women working here.

So, thank you to our awesome ladies: our President Nancy Vasquez, our CPO Angelica Preciado, our Sales Lead Nina Garcia, our Bookkeeper Terry Lang, our Receptionist Elanda Jimenez, our Warehouse Lead Rosa Vazquez, and Erika Velez, Emma Guevara, and Maria Cortez from our Vinyl Department for all that you do! Happy Mother’s Day!

Today, March 8, is International Women’s Day. While we would like to think we appreciate women 365 days a year, at Made in the Shade, International Women’s Day is the perfect time to highlight the woman who keeps the operation moving, our president, Nancy Vasquez!

Nancy started Made in the Shade in 1991 in her garage, and with the help and support of her family (and friends who became family) has turned this company into what it is today – one of Northern California’s top tent vendors.

Her vision, strength, and passion for this company and its employees is palpable and truly inspiring.

So happy International Women’s Day to all the amazing women out there, but specifically, happy International Women’s Day to our fearless leader, Nancy! Thank you for believing in your business, your employees, and being a great example of what it means to be a thriving female leader in a very male-dominated industry.

Thank You.

Let’s talk about September.

In our business, September is one of the busiest months of the year. The weather starts cooling off, so people start moving their events outdoors, and, in bustling Northern California, each weekend hosts amazing festivals.

This fall we have experienced an increase in jobs that sits somewhere between 5-10% over last year. We are at 15-20% less staff over last year. As you can imagine, that has added some challenges to our scheduling process. With that being said, the way our crews have performed throughout the month of September define what Made in the Shade is all about. Their tireless commitment to performance and safety (sometimes through the night) never wavered.

Our customers depend on our crews to build the infrastructure for their events. That is why they return year after year. We’ve earned that respect and loyalty because of what our crews bring to the job. From those who maintain the equipment to those who install it; those who confirm the jobs to those who manage the jobs on site; each person at Made in the Shade plays a valuable part that keeps MITS up and running.

The famous philosopher Kelly Clarkson once sang, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” and that has never made more sense for me until I saw firsthand the effort put forth by Made in the Shade team members. This month has been the most challenging we have seen in 2018 by far, but it has also solidified the Made in the Shade team as one of the best in the business.

Thank you to all of our employees and to all of our customers!

Now bring on the holiday season!

Ah, fall…in my opinion, fall is the perfect Northern California season. One-hundred-degree weather is a thing of the past, the sun goes down sooner—making everything seem cozier, and it becomes perfectly acceptable to spend your free time curled up watching Netflix.

One of my personal favorite shows to binge is The Great British Baking Show. This show has everything I like: baking, competition, Paul Hollywood’s sweet baby blues, and most important to today’s blog—a beautiful tent in the English countryside.

This structure is called a Losberger Sailcloth Tent. Losberger is a German tent manufacturer that produces high quality, stand out tents that are hard to ignore, while the Sailcloth refers to the dramatic peaks that you see here. We currently do not have the Sailcloth peak style in our inventory, but we have been steadily growing our Losberger inventory this year, so we can get you close. We also offer festival style tents which can give you a similar peak if that is the look you are after.

Our staff is incredibly well-versed in the large variety of tent styles. So, even if you happen to be watching a quaint little show from across the pond, if you spot a tent that sparks your interest, give us a call, and we will see what we can do about recreating the look for any upcoming event you might have! Cheers!
