The creative crew behind the Margaret River Artisan Store are celebrating their win in the Mail's 'Margs Goes Pink' window display competition as part of the Pink Up Our Region cancer fundraising event.
The window features a range of products, art, clothing and quirky pink items from within the collective, all created by local artists and manufacturers. Pink 'fairy lights' added to the theme, drawing on the pink lights that flooded the Main Street during the event.
Melissa Dath from the Margaret River Artisan Store said the win was especially significant given the display demonstrated some of the region's most talented and dedicated creatives.
The artisan store is so thankful for the community getting behind us and voting for the window display and also for all the support and patronage over the last four years to see us grow and evolve into the successful store we are today.Melissa Dath
"It's so nice to know our community was behind us - and members of the collective as well as our fans made every effort to vote and share our posts," she said.
The competition saw a tight race between stores in Cowaramup and Margaret River, with the Artisan Store (105 votes) edging out Reborn Code (58 votes), Mukau Giftware and Gallery (51 votes) and Stocker Preston Real Estate (30 votes) to clinch the win, and a $1000 advertising package donated by the Mail.
"This win will really make a difference to us, we don't have a budget to spend on marketing so to be able to get the word out to a wider audience about what we do and what you can find here in the store is very important for us," Ms Dath said. "The Artisan Store is so thankful for the community getting behind us and voting for the window display, and also for all the support and patronage over the last four years to see us grow and evolve into the successful store we are today."
