Today I wanted to share with you Supermarket Sarah, a new concept in vintage shopping, built upon the simple concept of buying 'clickable' items on a wall. The homepage is set as a living room wall, designed and updated by Sarah with items she has hand-picked or commissioned.
Sarah decided to leave behind the corporate world. Living around the corner from London's Portobello Market where she held a stall, she turned her home into shop. She welcomes visitors with tea and cakes and stories of Brit elite Damon Albarn and Lily Allen which are recounted on her blog. The site is bursting with vintage, customized and 'unexpected curios', as well as up and coming designers.
I like the idea of someone else doing the sourcing for those unexpected items it can take hours to find at the flea-markets and thrift shops. They are all displayed in a simple and eye-catching manner, styled in a way that makes my magpie eye glint with excitement.
