hank You to over 45 Stores who particpated in the WINDOW AND LOBBY DECORATING WINNERS (as for you you other stores who didn't, especially almost every store on Walnut Street except Joan Shepp & Lago's, could you step it up next year. I don't care if you're a chain especially you Athropologie who started here in Philly. BTW this is only my opinion.)

Best Newcomer Window. What would really be great is if all these windows remained through the end of April as The Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA) will be in full swing in just a month. Featuring music, dance, fashion, fine arts, theatre, poetry, cuisine and more—all generously flavored with the essence of Paris, circa 1910-1920—festival highlights include over 30 specially commissioned works as well as the participation of 128 regional arts and cultural partner organizations collaborating on an expansive and diverse array of programs, performances, events and exhibits occurring throughout Philadelphia in spring 2011. You must check out the array schedule of events occurring during the period, get a pen you'll want to attend a lot of them.
