I finally managed to get to The Quiet Shop at Selfridges. After all the talk, it was good to get a chance to see what the fuss was about. My verdict: it was … er … okay. The fact that they had music thumping inside The Quiet Shop seemed a bit off-brand, but then I guess it’s anti-brand so maybe that was the point.
I had come too late to see the shelves of bare-faced Heinz Beanz and Ketchup (shame!). I did manage to buy one little momento, though, and it has pride of place on the studio shelves. Selfridges, why didn’t you put it in an unbranded bag? Everyone would have recognised it (or were you worried they’d confuse it for Falcon?).
