The Corner Shop: Lucy Sparrow creates pop-up hand-sewn shop in Bethnal Green

Artist Lucy Sparrow has converted an abandoned corner shop in Bethnal Green, East London, into a pop-up exhibition called The Corner Shop. Inside are over 4,000 hand-sewn products – from magazines, to sweets, to ketchup and even ice lollies. Everything down to the till and charity tin have been fashioned out of fabric.

The project was listed on Kickstarter, and after successfully raising the funding required, Sparrow opened the shop's doors on 1 August.

The exhibition runs until 31 August, but for those that can't make it to London in time, almost all of the items are available for purchase online. Just don't eat or drink them.
