I just put the address from their website into google maps, and it comes up as a house.  It could be that they’re running the business from a house, but that sounds a bit suspicious to me. 

I also put the business name in Yellow Pages and looked for businesses in Hudson, MA…and there are no businesses named “Event Uplighting” in Hudson, at least according to YP.

Contact them and ask for references; also have them refer you to other vendors they worked with to verify.

There is one vendor I always side-eyed – the cake baker – because she wasn’t a full time baker but a professor who baked AWESOME cakes on the side. She did have a list of extremely satisfied patrons and I wasn’t disappointed. As an “audition” she baked the cake for the engagement party and it was phenomenal!

Check out the references!

Definitely check with the vendors to check his references, but I wouldn’t be quick to think it’s a scam. There are quite a few people in my area that have small businesses and run them out of their home. Oe was highly recommended to us for cheap decor rental and set up. We pulled up and it was a house and we kind of looked at each other! She had an upstairs landing set up as her office and had examples of items set up. She actually had good review, but we didn’t like any of the items she had available. Also, I know a lot of florists that worked for floral shops and branched out on their own (including my florist) like this guy is saying. My florist was really cheap because of it. She was able to keep her prices really low, because she didn’t have a shop or a lot of employees. You can get really good deals from these people, you just want to make sure you talk to someone that’s used them!
