Subway Banners

Subway banners are all the rage right now.  They look so great on a wall as an accent, or grouped alongside other art work.  We happen to have two different kinds in the shop at this time.  The always popular Paris Metro banner, and the very cool Chicago Stops, made by our friend Steve.

 Here is a closeup of the Paris Metro banner.  It makes a very cute backdrop in the shop.

Here is the full image.  It is also available in New York subway stops and London as well.

We also have these cool Chicago banners.  They are made from a local artist and a great customer of ours, Steve Milano.  He has an authentic Chicago bus stop roll that he makes these banners from.  Come see them at the shop, or check out his Etsy shop were he sells his fab vintage camera lights as well.  Go to upcycledlighting on Etsy.

Restoration Hardware is featuring Subway banners right now.  But at $719 a pop, not for everyone.

I found this Paris one from a very talented artist on Etsy.  You can get one here.

And finally, one for the kids.  How sweet is this?  This artist on Esty offers these beautiful play room renditions in an array of colors.  See them at LilyGene.


With so many options to choose from out there, where will you start?  Remember, you can always make yourself a personalized one.  There are many tutorials on the internet.  Maybe when I have the time I'll give it a try. In the meantime, I have the Paris Metro banner, and one of Steve's Chicago bus stops.  That's a good start I suppose, but I'm REALLY thinking about adding the play room rules.  It's just so perfect and quite adorable!


Have a great day, and remember, we're open again this week!
