This is such a Sydney story.
For the 37 years spanning 1930 to 1967, a man named Arthur Stace walked the streets of Sydney ... and wrote on them; one word, always the same word, in yellow chalk in large, elegant copperplate.
That word was "Eternity."
He worked before dawn, alone and in secret, travelling to a different neighbourhood every day. For decades this divine prank mystified the people of Sydney. The scrawls were an enigma. People grew up with them. Columnists wrote about them. Street sweepers swept around them. Artists like the late, great Martin Sharp were inspired by them.
Before his conversion to Christianity in 1930, Arthur was a derelict alcoholic on the edge of insanity. Then one day at a Baptist Church (now the Eternity Playhouse on Burton Street in Darlinghurst) he heard a noted give-em-Hell preacher shout to the congregation: "I wish I could shout 'Eternity' through the streets of Sydney." He repeated himself and kept shouting "Eternity, Eternity." The words rang in Arthur's head as he left the church. He began to cry, bent down and wrote it for the first time. He knew what he had to do.
Our Eternity design celebrates Arthur Stace's Eternity by faithfully reproducing his iconic scrawl.
NB: NEW! Mr Eternity ... The Story of Arthur Stace, by Roy Williams with Elizabeth Myers, launched on 23 November 2017, is now available at REMO HERE.
Shipping & Returns
Shipping & Returns
We ship from REMO in Bondi. However, just about everything bearing a design is now printed to order and shipped from a production facility in Victoria. This new process takes a little longer, but the wait is worthwhile. For Regular Shipping orders, it takes roughly 7 to 15 business days to custom print and deliver your order using Australia Post. Some places outside metropolitan areas may take a bit longer. Need them a bit faster? Select the Express delivery option and we will use that method of shipping, although this will not speed the production process itself.Please note that international orders may be subject to additional customs fees and duties, which are the responsibility of the customer.CustOMERs can return or exchange for any reason whatsoever. Please just send the items back to us at PO Box 7488 Bondi Beach 2026 in the original packaging with clear exchange or return instructions.Having said this, all REMO merchandise bearing designs is now custom made to order. We do not operate a physical store and have no use for returned t shirts. Therefore, we would ask you then to please be very careful with T Shirt size selection. There is a table on every T Shirt product page that sets out relatively exact measurements for both width and length of the various sizes. If you have a T Shirt you like and a ruler near by, you should be able to work out your size. Also, AS Colour is a relatively well known brand, especially in the Australian market, so many of you would already know your size for that brand.
