Bus Scrolls




I absolutely LOVE the bus scrolls which appear in just about every magazine at the moment! I looked in to purchasing one and even wholesale they were way out of my budget. I was lucky enough to stumble upon Bus Roll Tea Towels!




They had a wonderful Adelaide version seen above. I purchased myself one (a little reminder of home) and will be framing it and putting it on the wall in my kitchen. Same look and a fraction of the price! I have also seen them stretched on canvas and this also looks fab.




I am very excited to have have placed an order for my shop today and am now going to be stocking them!

I have a stretched fabric one in black I bought on ebay for $40!! Saw them in a magazine earlier in the year and loved it. Since then the price is ridiculous. Great to hear you have sourced the tea towels and will look great in your kitchen...Sure to be a great seller....

Hi Letitia. I am sooo glad you commented on my blog because now I have found yours and absolutely love it!(Now following).
My husband and I lived on K.I. when we were first married. He had his first teaching job there. His family are mostly in Adelaide and we are overdue for a holiday down there.When we do, I will be making a detour to visit your White Shed!!!
I would love to mention you on my blog. If this is okay let me know by commenting on my blog. Maybe I could pop on a picture of your shop - that should entice the bloggers:o)(Only with your permission of course).

Bus scrolls are divine, especially the locally relevant ones! You'll have to post a pic of your framed one once it's up - I'd be keen to know where you get your frame. And I'm so excited you'll be selling them through the White Shed! It doesn't get any better! xo

Hi Letitia,
Found your blog thanks to Ange at Chair Up and am so glad to have found you! Would love to see some more photos of the inside of the home you built. It looks stunning from the outside! I too belive that the little details (door handles and toilet roll holders) make a huge impact and really matter! Thanks for the wonderful blog!
