The 2,800 square foot “supermarket” is stocked with over 30,000 handmade items available for purchase.
For her fifth large-scale installation, British artist Lucy Sparrow converted a sweeping space in downtown Los Angeles into a full-on felt supermarket modeled after the city’s classic convenience stores.
Open for business until August 31 at The Standard, Downtown LA, “Sparrow Mart” is stocked with everyday items from produce to packaged foods, to cleaning supplies and liquor bottles made entirely from the fabulously fuzzy fabric. The 31,000 pieces—all handmade and signed by Sparrow—are available for purchase in store. Prices vary, with $10 sushi rolls, $35 candy bars, and $65 bottles of gin among the range of feel-good felt goods for sale.
