The Cornershop

Last weekend, I made a special trip up to London, in pursuit of one place … The Cornershop! After reading about The Cornershop through a link on Facebook, then repeatedly coming across features in newspapers & online, as well as seeing other bloggers photos on Instagram,  it was the one place I had to visit this summer!

 The art installation was created by Lucy Sparrow and promotes the perfect mix of art & community. Lucy ran workshops during her one month installation at the shop for people from a wide variety of backgrounds… find more information here.

 I was hugely surprised by the wide variety on offer at the Cornershop. I kept thinking one item was my favourite, then changed my mind to something else!

Dr Pepper… What's the worst that could happen?

 Ritz crackers are a huge favourite of mine. I was also super surprised to see Heinz Ravioli, which is my 'brunch' staple when I'm at my family's house!

There was a wide range of alcohol & cigarettes, as well as magazines.

 I think it would be hard to not find something to love and take home from the Cornershop! I wanted to buy everything! It was such a nice little corner of East London to go and visit. I was surprised, for a weekend morning, that it was so busy!
