Spalding shop Pearl & Ruby has best-dressed Christmas window in town!
New Spalding furniture and gift shop Pearl & Ruby has been judged to have the best festive Christmas window in town!
The shop, which has been open for just two months, was presented with the accolade by Coun Gary Taylor, who judged the competition for independent shops as part of the Christmas Celebration in Spalding last weekend.
Co-owner of Pearl & Ruby, Kayleigh Ayres, was delighted to take the title and has the winner's certificate proudly displayed in one of her award-winning shop windows in Red Lion Street.
Kayleigh said: "I did put a lot of hard work into it because I wanted to try hard and win the award," she laughed.
"I wanted to make a special effort - we have two lovely bay windows and I did one all sparkly and one in traditional red.
"I didn't know what to expect from our first Christmas, having never done this before, but I think it's going well - we certainly have had some lovely people in here.
"It's trying to let people know we're here and getting the people in when we are up against places like Queensgate [shopping centre, Peterborough]. But the people who come in comment on what lovely things we have and especially love our little gift ideas.
"Lots of people that come to our workshops also take the time to have a look around and then hopefully tell their friends!
"We sell lots of lovely things that are made locally and we are also currently re-designing our website, so people will be able to buy more things online," added Kayleigh.
