East London’s premier purveyor of everyday and bespoke goods for the living, dead and undead. We stock a pharmacopoeia of different types of fear, a complete range of edible human preserves and everyday household essentials like Fang Floss and Zombie Mints. So we invite clients old and new to come and discover why we’ve been the store of choice for discerning monsters for over two hundred years, and will be the same forevermore.
Hoxton Street Monster Supplies is real, sort of. But Hoxton Street Monster Supplies is not just cute! As India Knight explains at her Posterous blog:
The Ministry of Stories is in Hoxton High Street. You go through Hoxton Street Monster Supplies – which… stocks everything a monster might require – and find the secret entrance to the Ministry of Stories itself. Children aged 8-18 can drop in to the writing sessions on Thursday afternoons from 3.30-6.30, or on Saturday mornings from 10am-12pm, and get help writing anything from a book to a poem to a CV. Completely genius idea.
Learn more about the program and how to help at Ministry of Stories.
