Every holiday season the Short North comes alive with festive displays and trimmings. Each year, the Short North Business Association presents special awards to merchants for their holiday window displays, with categories including creativity, branding and holiday spirit.
Congratulations to Flower Child this year's winner...
Flower Child - Winner of the 2009 ZenGenius Award of Excellence for Best Display
Flower Child stole our crown this year- (last year On Paper won Best Overall and
Best use of Product), but I saw their windows last night in all of their Holiday Hop glory and if I do say so myself, and they were fantastic!!
This year, the competition was stiff and On Paper was awarded: Runner Up - Best Use of Product. It's nice to be in such great company- along with Collier West, Rowe, Big Rock Little Rooster, Substance and many others.
On Paper's Assistant Manager Michelle Porreca did an amazing job in her execution of the two displays- precise, witty and a strong point of vue. We spent all day last Sunday playing Santa's elves and we were both pleased with the final festive result. We tried to feature some of our expanded gift collection so it was nice to be recognized for our efforts.
