Prop Houses Open This Coming July 5th (2019)

It’s that time of year again where everyone gets together, grills hot dogs, and tries to blow everything up but their hands.

This year July 4th falls on an awkward day, Thursday. That means some people, with their hands hopefully completely still intact, have to get back on the production wagon the Friday after festivities.

As is our custom we’ve asked so you don’t have to. So without further ado (and even fewer explosion jokes related to limb safety) here is our list of prop houses who will have their doors open for you this Friday, July 5th:

Ruby’s Road Trip Visits: Alpha Companies, Atlanta

The next spot Ruby and I swung by was Alpha Companies‘ location in Atlanta.
IMG_4460They are known for their large inventory of medical props and furniture as well as office dressing and furniture. Their location in Atlanta, GA is no exception to that.

Robert Vanasco, the prop manager, was helpful in walking Ruby and I around to see what they’ve got.

Of course Ruby managed to distract a little as she’s want to do sometimes of course.

The Alpha Companies

Alpha Companies Web LogoMy first impression of many prop houses seems to hit hardest immediately after I see their mock sets (you know, the fully set up arrangements that could be used as is for a fully dressed set). Everyone’s got em’ but I’ve never seen as many as there are at Alpha Companies. They seem to have every kind! Fully set up crime labs, conference rooms, even courthouses and birthing rooms. How re-birth-ulous… it’s truly the precedent of this new style of prearranged props.

Just as they rent out full set dressing, they search – outside the country even – for their wide array of furniture and props… so you’re sure to find diversity as refreshing as I’m sure their travels to find them are. They’re all so unique it’s like buying Legos, everyone buys the coolest sets, then switches a couple configurations to make it their own.

Many places will build a set for you, but Alpha likely already made it! Besides, seeing everything laid out together with naturally similar characteristics allows for the ease of swapping its interchangeable parts. That way you can take their idea and twist it perfectly, it makes shopping for props fun again!
