I love these too! But I have only seen them with a high price tag, I am going to start looking for them at flea markets.

Try searching "bus roll" or "bus blind." Good luck and let me know if you find one, I'm from Richmond as well!

Check on ebay, not vintage..but mine are from Restoration Hardware..and I love them. (mine are reproduction NYC bus rolls, and the stops actually hold meaning for me)
Received my fab tunic today...the fit is perfect! LOVE IT!

An etsy shop to check out...maybe she could do custom...search shop name "redletterwords". It's been in my favorites for awhile!) Have fun!

Since you're going to be in town you should definitely set aside some ample time to visit Solo ... you will love! I'm pretty sure Alexis put it on your list 'o things to do.
