Vitae Holiday Window Display 2012

Here is our finished window display! It is dedicated to Furry Friends Refuge, a local no-kill animal shelter that does great things in the community.  If you bring in a donation item before Christmas you get a discount at Vitae!

So much went into this display. It was designed by a friend, Amber Hathaway. She built the faux fireplace and made a fake log that appears to be burning. The tree is filled with silver painted dog bone ornaments and has a crossbones tree topper.  We also utilized some of the amazing photos from past photoshoots. If your in town you should take a peek... there are a lot of small touches that are hard to see in the photo.

If you love our window please vote for Vitae Design Collective! We would love your in the window contest this year!

Promenade and Donate for a Discount

We have our window display finished and have been organizing and restocking all of the goodies at Vitae. It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas in the East Village.

This Friday is the Holiday Promenade. There are a lot of kid friendly activities as well as food and drinks for the adults in most of the stores. There is also a festive window decorating contest so be sure to cast your vote.

Since we have some great dog items at Vitae we have decided to do a dog themed holiday window.  Here's a sneak peek. I'll post the final photo this weekend.

Since we are all about the pets we chose to partner with Furry Friends Refuge this year.  Check out the details below.  What a great way to give and get some holiday shopping done at the same time!
