The Old School Bus is finally in our hands!

September 12, 2022

It has been a long time coming but we honestly couldn't be happier with the outside of the bus, our friends at City Wide and at Signs First did an amazing job! Now to the hard stuff... inside the bus... and we need help! Reach out if you'd like to help us out. It's going to be so lovely once it's all complete.

Old School Bus Update

November 18, 2021

We are still in search of a space to construct the inside of our bus. With winter upon us, a large indoor space would be best, but if not we are happy to take an outdoor space. We have been on the hunt for some time now so please contact us if you know of a business that would be willing to donate us an indoor space until the end of March. City Wide is doing the final touches on the painting, and inspection as we speak.
