An Artist Decided To Stock Up Her Corner Shop And Here Is How She Did It… I’d Shop There!

This is absolutely awesome! And it is also unique, which is not difficult to imagine. After all, artists are not exactly known for their interest in the minutiae of stocking up the shelves of a convenience store. But this one got seriously interested.

So, British artist Lucy Sparrow came across an abandoned corner shop in Bethnal Green, east London, and decided to convert it into an art exhibition, which she named, aptly, The Corner Shop.

The highly unusual exhibition features no fewer than 4,000 hand-sewn felt products. Visitors will see (and you will, in the images below), chips, candy, magazines, frozen food and even a cash register, all of which have been the artist has created from fabric. Ms. Sparrow says that the process took her about seven months to complete and began with a successful fundraising on Kickstarter.

The Corner Shop will be to visitors every day this month and you can also shop online. (Scroll down for the video.)
