Selfridges has been giving a lot of blogger love lately, with its newly revamped website that now has e-shopping ahoy.  They're currently looking for the 'next Bryan Boy, Arianne Huffington or Perez Hilton' as well as hosting blogger-related activities with Jackie Dixon of Show Me Your Wardrobe shooting in-store, Fred Butler creating a super accessory live as well as errr… Style Salvage Steve doing a live interview… (once he gets over his scary fever…).  Supermarket Sarah isn't necessarily a blogger but her themed walls of vintage, brick-a-brack and one-off pieces have definitely gotten a lot of blog lovin' and what with Selfridges' past of visual merchandising experiments, giving Sarah this space in the Concept Store is a clever move indeed.  Supermarket Sarah with her adorned living room wall, has got a perfect formula to transfer to a much bigger wall and this week, we start off with the theme of "Royale with Cheese" – that's all things related to royals and cheesiness as opposed to anything from BK or anything to do with actual cheese (thank god!).  Over the next three weeks, the wall will change to themes of "Hoarders Delight" and "Clash Mash" and hopefully I'll be able to contribute a few bits and pieces too should my stuff make the Supermarket Sarah cut!

These vintage picks caught my eye – a good bit of tartan in the cape and these tan chelsea boots…

The beauty of the wall is that things could be ¬£1 up to a grand… like this trashbag (yup, made of binliners…) 'Chanel' bag which is ¬£504…. I didn't get to ask Sarah why it was this precise price but I'll do more probing…

More vintage picks augmented by Fred Butler's rainbow stars…

Glad to see embroidery-master Scott Ramsay Kyle once again making the wall with these three pieces… I want lurex ribboned boobs that also double up as googly eyes…

Not only is the wall a heck of a lot bigger, Sarah has shelves on the side too for all her Supermarket charity shop/carbootie bits and bobs to go…

I really love these Indian colonial-era cigarette cards…

On a a related note, I just noticed these fast food posters in the windows of Selfridges (they need to add a section devoted to their windows to their website again so I can get styling/props credits!)

…and my favourite…?

It's got to be the Hot Wang…(this isn't just UK-specific slang is it?!)

… which incidentally can also be found on the wall should you want errr…. this kind of err… wang…

    i just want to live in that shop!
    by the way, i’ve never heard of the term “hot wang”, and i’m from chicago (they eat tons of hot dogs around here). i’m guessing it’s a slang exclusive to the UK!

  2. Shame I wasn’t there cos I forgot all about it :D

  3. Great one! Supermarket Sarah did get a lot of blogger attention, so smart move from Selfridges.

  5. oooooh! i really want that school boy blazer! it’s too cute

  6. ko says:

    “hot wang” is not british slang… there were a whole bunch of stickers combining designer names and food names.

  16. A hot dog purse? Wow… Is there such thing as a cheeseburger purse too? I think I need one… (Never heard “hot wang” here before, but that’s pretty funny.)

    Further to your last post re. Patternity/Supermarket Sarah, I made on-line purchase, which was paid on March 12th… I did not receive the order yet and communication is a nightmare!!!

  18. susie_bubble says:

    Louison… so sorry to hear that…. I may pass that onto Sarah myself… she may be very busy with the Selfridges project at the mo… have you emailed the guys at Patternity as the wall is run in conjunction with Sarah?

  19. Louison says:

    I tried to get in touch on email address registered with Paypal, no reply. Then I used email provided on the website, but with no success. Had to open a Paypal dispute to receive an answer from an intern who apologized & promised 2 weeks ago to send the item + tracking number… Didn’t receive anything. Sorry for the boring details, but I thought it would be useful for your readers to know what to expect. Paypal claim is now pending and hopefully I will get a refund.
    Thank you so much Susie for the kind followup and keep up the fantasy :o
    Have a glorious spring week!
