British artist Lucy Sparrow has converted an abandoned corner shop in Bethnal Green, east London, into a temporary art exhibition titled The Cornershop featuring 4,000 hand-sewn felt products. Chips, magazines, candy, frozen dinners, and even the cash register have been faithfully rendered in fabric, a process that took Sparrow about seven months to complete and began with a successful plea for help on Kickstarter. The shop is open to visitors until 31 August and almost all of the items are available for purchase online.
