Caniche creates award-winning window

The Salisbury Community Appearance Commission recently recognized Caniche with the Best Overall Holiday Display award when the commission selected winners for the Fifth Annual Downtown Holiday Storefront Decorations Awards.
The awards are intended to promote a festive atmosphere during the holiday season, a press release said. The jury of four commission members, it said, “was pleased to find this year’s decorations to be more creative and more thoughtfully designed than in any previous year”
The commission “applauds Downtown Salisbury, Inc. for encouraging downtown shop -keepers to enhance their window displays year-round, as well as during the holiday season. They especially thank Textile Products in the 100 block of North Main Street for the always-elegant window dressing in their own storefront as well as another across Main Street. Also worth commendation is the ongoing contribution of F&M Bank in maintaining the elegant public access along Easy Street, and Summit Developers’ beautiful lighting of the street trees at 120 East Council St.”
The jury members looked at 72 seasonal displays created by downtown businesses. After discussion, they settled on six different awards to honor the most creative efforts of the shopkeepers.
Caniche, at 200 S. Main St., won for its “charming, multi-textured use of their window space, along with colorful wreaths and planters.”
The other awards were:
– Best Design for a Display ó Textile Products, 119-121 N. Main St.
– Most Creative Display ó A Step in Time, 5 Easy St.
– Best Display for Children ó Just the Thing, 103 N. Main St.
– Best Christmas narrative in a storefront window ó Okey Dokey General Store, 126 E. Innes St.
– Most Nostalgic Display ó Salisbury Square Antiques, 200 S. Main St.
All decoration winners will be invited to the commission’s Biennial Awards program, where they will be honored for their contributions.
