CHRISTMAS cheer has returned to Sale with a brilliant display of festive shop windows entered in this year’s Sale Community Business Association Christmas window competition.
Wellington Shire councillor Carolyn Crossley, who also has Cowwarr Art Space, judged the competition and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the window displays.
“It was like the pages of Vogue Living opened up in Sale,” she said.
“This is far and beyond the best window displays I have seen in Sale for Christmas; the traders have done a wonderful job.”
The winner of best overall window display this year went to PJ’s Yard hairdressers in Raymond St, Sale, with owner Corey Alexander setting up a Christmas dinner scene in his window, complete with ‘live’ models during the judging period.
Winner of most creative window went to new floristry business Pollen and Patina, Raymond St, and best traditional window was won by Khayaam Hair and Make-up, also in Raymond St.
Sale Community Business Association event organiser Wendy Reeves said 27 entries were received for this year’s competition.
“We received entries from all over Sale, not just traders in Raymond St,” she said.
“The Sale Community Business Association is an organisation representing all business owners throughout Sale, so it was just fantastic to see businesses from all over Sale taking part in this competition and spreading the Christmas cheer throughout our town,” Ms Reeves said.
