Meet our guest curators: Christmas Markets
For each of our markets, we work with invited guest curators to help make stall selections. Due to high demand, these are never easy decisions. Each curator brings with them their unique taste which helps to keep our events fresh for the visitors.
Supermarketsarah.com is an online department store which allows creatives to sell and merchandise a curated selection of pieces in a uniquely personal style. Items are placed on real walls and users simply click and buy.
The “walls” started in Sarah’s living room but have now spread to galleries, shop fronts, bars, receptions. Sarah has had a store in the shape of a ten meter long wall on the ground floor of Selfridges London. The walls have taken on collaborative formats and so far Sarah has worked with brilliant designers including Fred Butler, Patternity, Donna Wilson, Tatty Devine, Tom Dixon, Kirstie Allsopp and many more, forming a super network of fresh talent.
Supermarket Sarah has become the place to go for inspirational delights and is regularly featured in media across the board, from Style Bubble to the BBC News.
Sarah's Book Wonder Walls, Supermarket Sarah's Guide to Display is out now, published by Cico Books.
