Ride Along ECR With Bags Full With Our Local Shopping Guide To Sholinganallur
Aptly named Treasure Hunt, this store is a place waiting to be found and is a gift haven. From sculptures, wall hangings to paintings, candles, personalised lamps, they have some crazy and quirky collection. We found some spooky artificial spider webs, pirate skeletons and creepy masks in there. Along with that, there was a corner filled with shelves of stationaries and books. We found gleaming geronimo Stilton collections too.
