Holiday Storefront Decorations Awards winners dazzle with window displays – Salisbury Post

SALISBURY – The Salisbury Community Appearance Commission has presented awards for its 17th annual Holiday Storefront Decorations Awards, which recognize creative and festive shops, restaurants and businesses in the city center.

Here are the winners of the 2021 Holiday Decorations:

• Shuckin ‘Shack at 118 N. Main St. won the Commissioner’s Award for its animated painted windows with toothy sharks in Santa hats and a St. Nick surfboard. According to the commission, their display touched all brands, including creative, fun and festive.

• Timeless Wigs and Wonderful Things at 121 W. Innes St. A won the award for Best Building Display for her “timeless” display of wreaths, bows and balls that echo the city’s decorations.

• The Tonyan Grace boutique at 210 S. Main St., with delicate flowers falling under the snow in the windows, won the award for the most elegant exhibition.

• Barnhardt Jewelers at 112 E. Innes St. received the award for best nighttime display for its sparkling gas lamps framing sparkling windows.

• The Glen Hayes Christmas store won the award for best nostalgic display with its use of an old-fashioned car and truck tucked away in the storefront full of surprises.

• Oxford + Lee’s sparkling tree with colorful, wrapped gifts helped him win the whimsest show ever.

Three newcomers complete this year’s winners:

• Understanding Your Dog won the award for best thematic display with a tree covered in puppies.

• The French Nest won the award for best new store, transporting the viewer to a French country nest where the blankets are soft and the fire is hot.

• Bell Tower Green, which is shrouded in lights and has a 25-foot-tall Christmas tree, received the Most Magical Experience award.

Honorable mention goes to Griffin Guitars, Fuller’s Market, Hotwire Communications and Umami Downtown.

This year’s selection committee consisted of President Reg Boland, Vice-President Chris McNeely, Jessica Cloward, Hugo Correa, Jeffrey Martinez, Mike Mills and Kelly Vanager.

The Community Appearance Commission said it thanks all of the store owners and staff who decorate their storefronts for the holidays and throughout the year. For more information on the commission, visit
