Everything in this store is made out of felt

A British artist by the name of Lucy Sparrow – whose bio says she “sets the agenda for textiles within the urban art scene”  has created something called “The Cornershop.”

It’s being billed as the “fluffiest, furriest shopping experience imaginable.” You walk into what was an abandoned store, and everything that you might find in a convenience store – and I mean everything – is there, but it’s made entirely out of felt.

She’s sewn felt newspapers…

…felt cigarettes….

…felt cheese…

…even felt Prozac…

She spent seven months doing this, and it really does look amazing. You can see some more pictures taken by the Mirror in the UK.  The store will be up for a month, and each of these 4,000 or so felt objects is for sale.
