Thames Hospice shop's in the Royal Borough and beyond have been fighting it out to win the best Christmas window display.
Rebecca Smith who works at the Peascod Street store said: "It is a little bit of friendly competition to promote fundraising for the hospice."
The Peascod Street shop, which specialises in retro items, decorated the window in old-fashioned sledges which sold almost straight away as well as a customised vintage Father Christmas costume.
The competition is a way for the shops to promote the Thames Hospice Santa Dash being held on Sunday in Bracknell.
In total 13 shops took part, including in Woodley and Crowthorne, with the Binfield shop being crowned the winner.

More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
