God's Own Junkyard

Sarah and I popped down to God’s Own Junkyard on Wednesday night, a fabulous pop-up collection of new and vintage neon signs, movie props and retro advertising signage on Beak Street, Soho. The curator/artist Chris Bracey collects junked signs from movie sets then repairs and resurrects them into brand new art pieces. The temporary exhibition/shop is only there for another couple of weeks, and I highly recommend visiting while you can – as you can see it’s quite stunning.

    Oh, woooow! I’d love to be able to visit this. If only I could fill my house with lights like this without it looking like las vegas…

    This looks amazing and I’ll actually be in London this weekend so hopefully I’ll be able to see it – thanks for sharing! x

    You’re right, it is quite stunning. If only I lived closer and got to see it for myself!
