ROOM 212 has been crowned the winner of the best Christmas window display competition.
Throughout December, festive shop windows have adorned the Gloucester Road, with of a jovial little goblin appearing amidst the displays.
Shoppers were encouraged to vote for their favourite festive window wherever they spotted Gordon the Gloucester Road Goblin. Voters were able to nominate their favourite display online, or by voting in various stores along the street.
Flo Jo Boutique came second, Playfull Toys came third and Andrews estate agents came fourth.
Gordon the Goblin was first created by illustrator and north Bristol artist, Laura Robertson, for her children’s books ‘The Quest in a Vest’ and ‘Oh My Is That a Pork Pie!’
Sarah Thorp, owner of Room 212, said: "The launch of Gordon the Goblin worked brilliantly in the run up to Christmas. I was amazed how quickly customers got into the idea. I've heard children exclaim, 'look, there’s another Gordon'."
