The Old School Bus is finally in our hands!

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.
