There is a hidden place at University Mall I would like to share with you.  It is inside a store, called Cameron's.  The store itself is very cute.  A boutique shop, it is full of neat, artsy, unique and stylish baubles for all tastes and ages.  I had so much fun browsing the things for sale here.  Locally made bags and purses, beautiful clothing, and fun items for kids and babies.  The place is worth checking out.

But, the surprise came when I went upstairs (past the Elvis paraphernalia) to check out the cards.  There, inside the area which houses all the stationery, is a door, draped with beads, to a small dark room.  It was kind of scary to enter, I am  not going to lie.  Yet this room is crazy fun!  It is called the Shrine Room. 

It is a shrine to anything and everything.  People come in, share something creative, and leave.  There are bright things, drawings, pictures, lights, colors, and phrases all around.  Very interesting and completely unexpected.  There is certainly a lot to look at here.  Nothing to buy in here, though.

And I love a place with a sense of humor.  As you walk out of the Shrine Room, there is a tiny store display of "do it yourself" shrine kits.

Go for the Shrine Room, stay for the shopping.
