In Watermelon Sugar

If one were looking for the perfect setting for a Christmas spectacular, Hampden's breathtaking "In Watermelon Sugar", would be the undeniable choice. Christmas and glitter abound in this tinsel-filled space and has surpassed even last season's sparkling spectacle. Superbly merchandised and art-directed by owner, Leslie Stevenson, the act of merely photographing the details doesn't do it justice. One has to see the figurines, sea creatures and unique ornaments in all their scintillating glory to believe it...

Not to forget the exterior windows. One could easily fracture a small bone pressing one's nose against the glass to take it all in...
