Supermarket Sarah

I just fell in love with a web shop because this is seriously cool stuff. I found it via a wonderfully creative German blog called Ohhh… Mhhh… and the store is called Supermarket Sarah. Sarah Bagner lives near to Portobello Road in London where she has a rather interesting concept – a shop in her home where she posts things up, literally, to her walls and then invites you dear web friends to click on her wall and purchase what you see. How brilliant is this? I love it. I mean, this is truly the coolest thing I’ve seen in a very long time. Way to go Supermarket Sarah!

“Sarah decided to leave the corporate world behind her and has set up shop in her own home. Her home, round the corner from Portobello Market where she has a stall, is now overflowing with treasures and delights and she welcomes visitors with tea and cakes.”

How cool. I mean, really. Everything is one-of-a-kind so once it’s gone, it’s gone. Happy shopping!

    What a genius idea! Now we just need someone in the States to do something like that, so the prices are more reasonable for us Americans :) I love England, but I hate it that Americans have to pay double for everything because of the exchange rate.

    This is such a great idea!! It kinda makes you feel in control and more hands-on with your online shopping, like you’re getting something authentic! And so inviting, since everything is on a wall and you can sort of see the home! Thanks Holly :)

    Wow I love the idea of being able to display all your goods and ‘style’ them….and then just click and buy. That’s such a great idea and gives you lots of opportunity to get really creative!!!
    I’m smitten!

    Ingenious. A constantly rotating wall that’s both curated (items were selected) and spontaneous (items come from endless sources, histories, areas).

    On one hand, I feel like I’m looking at an exhibition wall of curios. On the other, I realize it’s a REAL environment, totally accessible to shopping and touching/clicking. It was the presence of the real people with backs turned to us, engrossed in mounting a ware, that made this shop all that it is.

    I wonder if that was an intentional addition (including the women in the snapshots)?

    Excellent marketing! Thanks, Holly.

    I don’t go a day where I feel that people aren’t just totally inspiring, and ready for freshness! Sara’s story is awesome, and many of her items have some real longevity appeal, which is what I’m looking for when shopping. Timeless, not trendy…unless it’s tiny and inexpensive.
