I mentioned a while ago that we had entered a competition for the best shop window during the Victorian weekend. Judging was yesterday and we didn't get a place on the podium. We were, however, Highly Recommended by the Mayor and my manager was presented with a certificate.
The winner was the fancy fabric, curtain and bedding shop, as expected.
In a sense I feel it's only right that an indie business wins and gets the publicity, the one thing I do know is that next year if we take part it's going to be a tree, some teddies and a couple of sprigs of holly. There is no way I will be putting so much effort in again!
I'm doing the Christmas window this week, should be fun.
