Holiday spirit

by Anna Oakes

There's an extra touch of holiday spirit in downtown Boone this year, and the extra effort might have been fueled by the spirit of competition.

The Downtown Boone Development Association on Friday announced that the Appalachian Antique Mall on King Street was the 2013 winner of the Bright Beautiful Boone Holiday Window Display Contest.

The DBDA this year revived the holiday-themed window display contest, with the winner decided by online voting from Nov. 29 to Dec. 19. As the winning merchant, Appalachian Antique Mall will receive a cash prize of $150.

Downtown merchants were also encouraged to hang fresh wreaths on their doors and to incorporate choose-and-cut Christmas tree traditions into their displays to signify the DBDA's partnership with choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms.

Appalachian Antique Mall's presentation included fresh tree trimmings and ornaments in outdoor flower boxes, and the window displays featured Christmas toys and a white, silver and blue wintry scene.
