Corneshop Jesta started years before we opened our doors in 2014.
After school had finished for the day, I would quickly make my way to the local corner store. I would struggle to push the door open but once I manage to squeeze through I was transformed to another world.
The aisles looked as if they went on for miles and were so high I think I needed a ladder just to get to the second shelf.
My choices had to be swift but wise as I needed get home before Dungeons and Dragons had started. On a side note, Venger was always my favourite.
Tasty treats were not the only items on offer at our local. Panini stickers were always the craze especially during World Cup year. I remember having four Diego Maradona stickers – which were popular for swapsies.
At Cornershop Jesta, we hope to create that nostalgic vibe that I experienced in my childhood with our t-shirts. By also channelling our love of Pop Culture create something pretty special.
So, thank you for being here – take a look around – and follow us on this grand adventure.
