Congratulations, Kil'n Time – Winner of the 2017 Merry Merchants Competition

November 21, 2017

Kil’n Time Contemporary Ceramic Studio in downtown Bristol has been voted first place in the window decorating contest! On Monday, November 20, during the annual Downtown Christmas Open House, Kil’n Time caught the eye of many and became the fourth recipient of the Merry Merchants Window Decorating Competition Award hosted by Believe in Bristol’s Design Committee. The merchants were challenged to make the most of their favorite Christmas song and the winner was decided by judges from the Believe in Bristol Design Committee.

“We were really looking for one that followed the theme with creativity. Kil’n Time definitely did that with their Grinch themed window,” stated Emily Champagne, Believe in Bristol Design Committee member.

Additional congratulations to Willow Creek Antiques and Bristol Ballet for honorable mention for the Merry Merchant Competition. “Willow Creek was beautiful and creative. We also wanted to honor the Nutcracker live performance window at Bristol Ballet, although that was only for Open House night. The creativity and the participation from all of the merchants was outstanding and helped to make downtown festive and ready for the holiday season.”

The prize awarded was a certificate to showcase the win, features in Believe in Bristol’s e-news and social media pages, and, of course, bragging rights! The window display will remain up throughout the holiday season. Thank you to everyone that participated, we look forward to seeing what you come up with next year! Kil’n Time Ceramic Studio is located at 818 State Street, Bristol, TN 37620.
