Shelf Life

Shelf Life


A project dedicated to all the wonderful defiant independent traders and they’re small quirky shops.

Inspired by John Londeis ‘Shutting Up Shop’ project

While Londeis work focused on shops that he felt were about to disappear we will celebrate small shops that are still going in this age of internet shopping and the supposed death of the high street retailer.

We celebrate the dusty book shop, the Aladdin’s cave of a bikes mechanic, the rare vinyl emporium, the friendly corner shop and everything in between.
