Recognizing innovative ideas and a creative touch, the Oak Bay Business Improvement Association has honoured the best in the Avenue’s decorated windows.

Taking first place in the Contemporary category was A La Mode, for their entertaining take on the holiday season, while Avenue Gallery placed second with its stylish display highlighting its All That Glitters exhibition.

The best window in the themed category went to Pedego Electric Bikes, for its eye-catching display with a cheerful red tandem bike as its centerpiece, with Eclectic Gallery in second place with a festive window filled with interesting artwork and folk-art holiday elves.

A number of shops opted for a traditional take on the holiday decorating and among those, Timeless Toys took first place with its display incorporating various toys gathered in seasonal vignettes, while Finn & Izzy was a close second with its two themed bear trees.
