Sunday 9th Sept: Supermarket Sarah
On the evening of the Simon Foxton preview I unexpectedly discovered a second source of obscene colour nourishment . I met Sarah Banger who is the mastermind behind a revolutionary and royal righteous-arse impressive shop "Supermarket Sarah". She started out on the Portabello Road and has since moved the market stall into her own home for an appointment only experience, complete with tea and cakes. As the stock changes, Sarah also catalogues the produce with a live shot on the website so when online buyers click back it will have morphed. In addition to this, she devises specific stories so that there is a flow of themes to her collection. Having previously worked for titles such as Wallpaper, World of Interiors & Living etc. it is second nature for her to design beautifully captivating still-life scenarios. Obviously I'm particularly drawn into the monochrome palettes of which red will be up next.
Not only are the pieces harvested with a discerning eye but they are also arranged in this delectably delightful unique homepage. One of her local Notting Hill contingent foot-fall browsers is in agreement ..................according to the tag line which appears on her hand printed/cereal box business cards.............

Anything with a silly sense of humour and selection of quirky styles gets a big thumbs up from me................can't wait to see what is going to be popping up in this rad new retail experience. Click on the link or go give her a visit, I think her biscuit tin comprises of jazzy pastel coloured party-rings..................
