Potsdam chamber names Holiday Window Display winners


POTSDAM - The Potsdam Chamber of Commerce recently sent out its three judges to view the 13 businesses that entered its Window Holiday Display Contest.

The judges enjoyed looking at the variety of displays from traditional to modern, and from painted windows to interior design. Judges scored each entry in five criteria: theme, eye catching, reflects business, use of space, and uniqueness.

“I’m so glad I did not have to judge,” stated chamber Executive Director Marylee Ballou. “Our businesses have really stepped up and created some great displays over the last two years.”

The first place honors went to Today’s Hair and Day Spa, 36 Market St. The judges really liked the consistency of theme and color, the uniqueness of the concept, and how it is a display that can’t be ignored.

The runner up honors went to Mh Studios, 63 Market St., with its Silver Winter Wonderland. “It has such an elegance and magical feel,” noted judge Tracy Tuttle and chamber board member.

“Although we only have a first prize and runner up ribbon,” Ms. Ballou explained, “we also wanted to give an honorable mention shout out to Bicknell Appliance & Home Interiors, for their charming scene which encompassed both and exterior and interior view. They received the third highest total score.”

Today’s Hair & Day Spa will receive a blue ribbon and a “pizza party” for its staff. Mh Studios will receive a white ribbon. The chamber will explore the possibility of doing a similar contest around other holidays like Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day and asks any businesses to contact the chamber if they would be interested.
