Recently I visited a cornershop in Bethnal green selling all the usuals you would expect. The only difference is this was actually the total opposite of what you would expect.

The 'Cornershop' is an art installation of around 4000 everyday items made from felt. Lucy Sparrow, the maker of this wonder, has spent over 7 months making each and every product you would find in your local convenience store.

From penny sweets in jars, to cigarettes, dirty magazines to frozen chips and ice lollies, it really is an amazing thing to see.


It was so difficult to pick a favourite, they were all so great, I did really like the sweets, chocolates and crisps, but then these are all my favourite things any way.

If you fancy a visit, the shop is at 19 Wellington Row, London, E2 7BB and open everyday in August 10am-7pm. Don't worry if you can't make it, there is also a shop online where you can purchase all the items which are on sale in the shop
