It's calling to you, you know who you are... – UConn students: If you weren't already aware of this gem inside the little town of Uconn, oops I mean Storrs. Lets face it, Skeletons Closet is part of campus!
This store is located in back of store24 (if that still exists... and cojones... or whatever the new name of this spot is) It comically is also located in the same building as the Greek Gear Shop.
This creates an interesting dynamin of frat guys and easy dz's bumping into not so "there" cats and chicks who are listening to the music in their head.
The owner is about 400 years old and will live forever and might be the person the store is named after. This guy knows his stuff. If you have any questions head to him.
This shop is one you go to when you know what you need. It is not set up for browsing and it's impossible to steal, but by the time you leave your head will be in the clouds and wont remember to do anything stupid like that anyway. In addition to having glass, jewelery, vaps, incense, t-shirts, posters and other trinkets, they are one of the little known places to purchase salvia in multiple concentrations. Salvia is a little known about legal plant that when concentrated and smoked with tobacco like products, will produce a "euphoric/psychadelic/visually stimulating/trippy" five to ten minute expirience. I personally DO NOT AT ALL recomend this to anyone, It can be a potentially horrible expirience as well and the aftermath can leave you stunned, or bummed. So, think and learn more before you hit the store. The owner will warn you too, you best know what your dealing with.
So in conclusion, if you need a new replacement to hold up your piercing(s), grab it here, or stuff to decorate your space, new age knicknaks, or a new grateful dead tie dye shirt, as well as other needs, hit up Skeleton's Closet, just don't stay too long and get stuck inside... its not your average closet. (Unless you are, well I won't get into it.) Go in knowing what you want though because no one wants you to "hang" around. It's just not that kind of place. If you need info though, the owner will invest his time to help educate you, but DON'T WASTE HIS TIME, if you aren't really going to buy anything. Otherwise you're a flea in there and fleas get scratched!
Remember, on your way in and out watch out that you don't get hit in the face by some meathead frat brother on his way to buy keg cups with his frat name on them (so when the cops break it up for underage drinking they will know which frat to blame it on...) Uconn's fraternaty brothers have their good days, but a LOT of bad ones... also watch out that you don't melt from the deathstare well known to belong to sorority sisters when they aren't looking in the mirror. Its a quick walk downstairs if you don't have to deal with any of that. Otherwise, head to the shire afterwards and enjoy your purchases with friends. If its late night, there might be a shire fire, so head out with marshmallows!
((So, ditch drawing II, go to skele's, hit the shire and practice your thai chi, as ray prolly taught you!)) ..stay in school though.. and don't cut class. ;-)
the picture I threw up on skeletons closet's city search page is an oil painting I did at uconn. Hence why it was appropriate, also... it IS a skeleton.. The oil/guache painting is about 18x24" hand streached canvas. If you are interested in a print, using the image, or buying to original, contact me via facebook.
