Kil'n Time Ceramic Studio wins window contest

November 21, 2017

Bristol, VA/TN – Kil'n Time Contemporary Ceramic Studio in downtown Bristol has been voted first place in the window decorating contest.

On Monday, Nov. 20, during the annual Downtown Christmas Open House, Kil'n Time became the fourth recipient of the Merry Merchants Window Decorating Competition Award hosted by Believe in Bristol's design committee. The merchants were challenged to make the most of their favorite Christmas song, and the winner was decided by judges from the Believe in Bristol Design Committee.

"We were really looking for one that followed the theme with creativity. Kil'n Time definitely did that with their Grinch themed window," said Emily Champagne, Believe in Bristol design committee member.

Willow Creek Antiques and Bristol Ballet received honorable mentions for the Merry Merchant Competition. "Willow Creek was beautiful and creative. We also wanted to honor the "Nutcracker' live performance window at Bristol Ballet, although that was only for Open House night. The creativity and the participation from all of the merchants was outstanding and helped to make downtown festive and ready for the holiday season," Champagne said.

The window display remains up throughout the holiday season.
