MercerMe and HV Arts Council Hosting Second Annual Winter Windows, Shop Local Art Local


MercerMe and the Hopewell Valley Arts Council are excited to announce our Second Annual Winter Windows — a holiday shop-local / art-local initiative.

Hopewell Valley businesses have installed their beautiful holiday shopping window displays featuring this year’s Winter Windows theme: “Shimmering, Glistening, Sparkling!” The initiative is designed to draw attention and promote Hopewell Valley’s unique small businesses and celebrate art in our community.

Participating businesses decorated their storefronts with beautiful displays. During the rest of December, through January 4th, visit the Winter Window pages as often as you like to view all of the entries and vote for your favorites.

This years entries come from all women-owned businesses:

  • Flutter Boutique
  • The Front Porch
  • Orion Jewelers
  • Sticks and Stones Toy Shop
  • Beth Ann Designs
  • Art Sparks
  • Twine.
  • Sophia Rose Designs

Voting happens in a round-robin “hot or not” style with each entry getting a chance to be rated from 1 (“just good”) to 10 (“simply perfect”). At the end of the voting period, the windows with the highest percentage score will be the winners and receive advertising on

Entries are presented randomly, so keep voting until you see the ones you like.  Remember, it’s not the total number of votes but the final average score that takes the cake, so don’t worry about voting too many times for windows that you like less, as long as you give your favorites higher scores.

Here’s the link to begin your voting! VOTE HERE!
