Hoxton Street Monster Supplies

27 Nov

We went to check out the Hoxton Street Monster Supplies, Purveyor of Quality Goods for Monsters of Every Kind today. The shop front is designed to attract kids and adults with its curiousities like Old Fashioned Brain Jam, Organ Marmalade, Freshly Extracted Nails, Pickled Eyeballs and Maiden’s Hair. The sort of shop you would go to pick up ingredients for Roald Dahl’s Revolting Recipes. Different kinds of Tinned Fears area also available to buy (housing short stories commissioned by the likes of Zadie Smith and Nick Hornby, etc). Behind some shelves is a hidden entrance to the Ministry of Stories where writing workshops are held for children and young adults. Literary- a tempting treat! I just wish I was young enough to sit in one of the workshops! What fun!
