The Felt Cornershop – Lucy Sparrow

Lucy Sparrow spent eight months meticulously hand stitching over 4,000 felt replicas of everyday grocery items, to eventually fill a former derelict shop in London’s Bethnal Green.

Everything in The Felt Cornershop is for sale, from tins of baked beans to fruit, and even a cash register, with a full inventory on her website.

The Felt Cornershop is daily from 10am – 7pm until until 31 August in Bethnal Green, London before moving to Brighton in October.
