Oak Park institution CarefulPeach Boutique, 1024 North Boulevard, has taken the top honors in Juliska's Design-a-Palooza Winter 2010 retailer display competition. The nationwide competition challenges shops to create unique in-store displays featuring Juliska's dinner and glassware pieces.
Owner Karen Morava and staff created the winning display, inspired by the colors and textures of the crisp autumn woods, just in time for Thanksgiving, utilizing Juliska's high-quality ceramic dinnerware and mouth-blown glassware to create a unique and stunning table setting – complete with turkey centerpieces. This is the first win for CarefulPeach Boutique, which has been a proud Signature Retailer of Juliska for five years. The staff members of CarefulPeach are honored to have placed among other entries from around the country, including the second and third place runners-up from Alabama and Georgia, respectively. Owner Morava says, "We're already brainstorming ideas for how to top our entry this year. We can't wait to compete again next year!"
