Stranger in the Window


Over 160 people that took part and fifteen found all of the 60 stranger items so well done to the keen eyed entrants.

The chamber board then had to decide the winning entry by reading out the tie breaker phrases without age or name mentioned, it was difficult and we thank all of you that took part, the winner and runners up are as follows with their catchphrases for I like shopping in Deal because…..

1st Emily Barker (pictured above) wins £70 – “Everyone has a smile and goes the extra mile”

2nd Jared Ransley wins £25 – “It’s a friendly, fun place that brings a smile to my face”

3rd Ashton Ransley wins £15 – “It’s beside the sea, the loveliest location and home to me”

It is the first time we have had twins as 2nd and 3rd prize winners and it was more remarkable that we read out 8 shortlisted entries to pick them out not aware of this!

Congratulations also to Rees & Rees who win the award for the most original and interesting stranger item.

Rees & Rees make beautiful classic jewellery, wedding rings and other bespoke designed jewellery items; their shop window is always well worth a visit as well as the other 59 businesses that displayed strangers!
