Here is a Real Convenience Store Filled Entirely With Fake Foodstuffs

By: Lawrence Bonk

Convenience stores have a long and storied history of offering us beef jerky, candy and sugary pseudo-coffee. What if, however, instead of all of the foodstuffs we know and love tolerate, they were filled entirely with felt fakers? If you are near London, you'll get a chance to see what that would be like.

A British artist named Lucy Sparrow has opened a convenience store filled with fake snacks and fake drinks, all made from felt. Don't worry, nicotine heads, there are fake cigarettes as well. Why would anyone do this? It's art! All told, Sparrow created over 4,000 fake items over the course of seven months.

Don't worry. If you are stuck in a country that doesn't count the Beatles as favorite sons, you can order some of these felt creations online. Check out the website here.
