Window shoppers have a reason to walk into Walker Home, an antique store at 1125 King St. It won the Old Town Boutique District’s Winter Wonderland window decorating contest Saturday.
Mayor Bill Euille took notice of the shop’s holiday ornamentation and stopped by to congratulate Rose Woodford, Walker Home’s owner.
More than 2,500 voters participated in the contest via social media and a public poll, said Elizabeth Todd, co-founder of the Boutique District and owner of the Shoe Hive.
Fiberspace, a shop dedicated to all things knitting, nabbed second place. Organizers hope the contest will boost boutiques’ presence on commercial streets in Old Town during the holiday season.
