Our January window theme is Seed heads and window dressers, Kathryn and Tara, have been busy on their sewing machines making giant cow parsleys and teasels.
Our 2013 Christmas window displays feature giant paper pine trees inspired by vintage Scandinavian prints. Hanging in the tree tops are sparkly sequin stars which are really easy and fun to make – read our how to guide . The display was recognized in Falmouth’s annual “Best Dressed Christmas Window” competition.
