Morning Jeff.

I believe this is an annual event isn't it? Regardless, it will take some out of the box thinking to win those votes

These are great window decorations! Here's another "vote" for Betty Boop and Santa Baby-funny stuff!

And yet another vote for Betty Boop. What a great idea, we may have to suggest it to the Downtown Camas shop owners. Thanks for sharing it with us. D

Still another vote for Betty Boop! I would love if my community did the same thing. There's something about romanticizing your business store fronts for the holidays that makes it all more worthwhile.

Good morning Jeff.  I love the creativity that these windows display.  A wonderful holiday tradition.
