Well, the State Fair is over, the kids are back in school, and the temperatures are definitely dropping – all signs that fall is really here! With collections named “Arbor” and “Seasons”, I don’t think there’s a more “appropriate” time of the year to welcome jewelry designer Aaron Henry to Minneapolis and to Max’s for his first visit. Made with precious metals and gemstones, Aaron’s jewelry is versatile, sophisticated and highly collectible (take a look at more of his beautiful creations here). National Jeweler has named Aaron one of the Top 100 Designers of the Past 30 Years, so I’m sure you can understand why I am so proud to carry his work. In addition, his jewelry has appeared in industry and consumer magazines including Vanity Fair, Town & Country, Millionaire and In Style, and Jewelers Quarterly Magazine Aaron as a ‘Designer of the 21st Century’. He is a 3rd generation jeweler and is fortunate to work with his father who has been making jewelry from a long time, and I’m thrilled that his dad will be joining him for our trunk show! The show is Friday-Sunday, September 23-25, and while the jewelry will be here all 3 days, Aaron and his dad will only be here on Friday and Saturday. I hope that you’ll have an opportunity to stop in and see his beautiful and truly special creations.
10/20/30 — what in the world does that mean? Well, today marks the beginning of the beginning of Mpls. St. Paul magazine’s Boutique and Beauty Week (Sept. 9 -16) with special offers from many of your favorite local retailers. Hopefully, Max’s is one of those ( 🙂 ) and you’ll come in to take advantage of some really great special offers. We are offering 10% off of all in-stock jewelry purchases, 20% of all in-stock chocolate purchases, and 30% off of all in-stock home purchases (the only exception to these great savings is that they can’t be used against prior purchases or special order items). So now is a great time to stop in and pick up that necklace you’ve had your eye on, as well as to take a look at all of the new items from some of the designers whose work you’ve come to know at Max’s, as well as the work of some new artists to our collection, including Ray Griffiths, Belle Brooke, Erica Molinari, Jennifer Dawes, Amali, Annie Fensterstock and Lori Katz. Oh, and did I mention anything about the newest chocolates at Max’s — delicious bars and caramels from Diane & Company, pistachio brittle covered in dark chocolate from Gearharts’s, and truffles, bars, chocolate covered cherries and peanut butter pearls (did someone say pearls?!?!?!) from Michael Recchiuti. Anyone hungry yet? I hope to see you during Boutique Week!
