hoxton street monster supplies – purveyor of quality goods for monsters of every kind

with 2 comments

A real store in actual real existence, the Hoxton Street Monster Supplies stocks top quality goods for everyday monsters, and the monsters in all of us. We Made This took the idea, and executed a perfect old-world apothecary with hand-stuck labels and painted door signs. The most interesting part of this store? Behind a cupboard lies a secret stairway to lead up to a writing school for kids, called Ministry of Stories. The store is actually a fake front for a writing centre where kids aged 8-18 can get one-to-one tuition with professional writers and other volunteers. Born out of an idea of the 826 literacy project by Dave Eggers, this is one project that is perfect all over, inside and out.
