our (best dressed?) window...

As part of Perth Independents' Week this week shops in town were asked to make a display that would promote some aspect of summer in Perth. So with the help of my wooden husband (explanation below) we chose to go with the Perth Kilt Run (Perth, Scotland's attempt to snatch the world record for the largest number of kilted runners from our twinnies Perth, Ontario). 

Due to 'administrative errors' there was a bit of a 'breakdown in communications' with the council team who have been promoting this event so we're really late to the game and are just up on their Facebook page today, waiting to be judged (all lonely and looking for likes). If you are perhaps on Facebook and would like to give us a wee boost you can vote for our window on their FB page here .

ps. you can still vote for us as your favourite Perth shop here

*puppet was a wedding present from our Czech friends Johny & Sima and is a minature version of my other half Ken. Johny carved the marionette & Sima made the clothes. It is rather heavy and usually sits on a chair at home.

Tuesday, 2 July 2013 you'd like to vote for us

This week we are taking part in Perth Independents' Week (a council promoted event hinged around the nationally run Independents' Day on the 4th of July), the aim being to promote the varied & interesting shops we have in our locality.

Boo Vake is taking part in two 'competitions', one of which is Perth's Independent Retailer of the Year. If you would like to vote for us then you will find the link here . So far I think I've persuaded my mum to vote (although she did say she'd have a browse first to see who the other contenders were) so any others would be most gratefully received.

As you can see we're also entered into the Best Dressed Window comp but, as I write, we've not yet made it onto the council's chosen voting arena (perhaps this will happen before the end of the week).  

Hey, let the most brazen win!
