The Cornershop

How is this for crazy cool: everything, I mean everything, in Lucy Sparrow’s London corner shop is made from felt. The artist spent eight months hand stitching 4,000 drug store items before opening up her store with the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign. Uncanny replicas of candy bars, cigarettes, magazines, ice cream, canned foods, laundry detergent, beer and condoms stocked the shelves of the installation. As of late summer, Lucy sold out of all her provisions and her Cornershop is closed until further notice.

    I really enjoy your blog. I’ve been following you for several years now. I ran across a paper carving artist I think you’ll really enjoy, she’s truly one of a kind. I hope you feel the same way!

    Maude White has many unique and very detailed paper carvings to enjoy, both on her site and on her instagram site. I hope you check her site at http://bravebirdpaperart.com/home1 .

    I visited her site many times tempted to buy something, but ultimately…why? It’s an impressive feat of labor, no doubt, but ultimately what is the purpose of making the consumable and disposable out of felt?

    I love this so much. I’ve seen the Cornershop on Tumblr a lot. The amount of work that must have gone into it is incredible.
