Artist Transforms an Abandoned Shop into a Grocery Store
London-based fabric artist Lucy Sparrow transformed an abandoned Cornershop in Bethnal Green, east London, into a unique pop-up grocery store filled with hand made felt products. Each item- from the bean cans, to the snacks, drinks, frozen dinners, chewing gum and newspapers are made entirely out of felt: each meticulously hand sewn, stuffed and priced to sell. Sparrow painstakingly stitched together an incredible 3,944 items over a seven month period. The shop will be open throughout the month of August 2014 – with everything available to buy. Check out below this original concept.
