Happy Birthday (to us!)

At the risk of sounding a bit like a broken record, I find it amazing that another year has flown by and that Max’s is another year older.  When we opened our doors, I don’t know that I can honestly say what I thought the store would be like nine years out.  What I can say though, is that it’s been a terrifically fun journey filled with great new relationships with our customers and designers and staff.  Who can argue that coming to a place filled with beautiful jewelry and delicious chocolates every day is a pretty sweet deal?!?!  I am so in awe of what our designers’ brains develop, and love selecting from their creations to bring them to Max’s with the hope that you’ll react to them the same way I do.

When I left the corporate world to open Max’s, I referred to it as the start of “Chapter 2” in my life.  Nine years later, I’m still writing, and have every expectation and hope — with your fantastic support and a bit of luck — that it’s going to be a VERY long chapter.  I hope that you’ll stay tuned!

 


Have You Heard About Mother’s Day?

There are a number of things that happen every year.  It snows (well, ok, only if you live in certain places), you have to file a tax return (yep, sorry, that’s not optional), young adults toss their hats in the air during commencement ceremonies, there are fire works sent high into the sky in July, and holiday decorations start springing up in many shopping establishments the day after Halloween.  One of the other things we do, if we’re lucky to have her, is celebrate mom.  Yep, Mother’s Day.  Did you know it’s this Sunday?  Need some ideas?  How about this for starters.  Given that it’s spring and the time of year that flowers start to bloom, we’re in love with these hydrangea earrings from John Iversen, one of the newest designers to join Max’s collection.  The hydrangea is one of John’s signature styles, and is  available in gold or silver, with different numbers of blooms.  We think it’s perfect for mom, because you were thinking of getting her flowers anyway — right?!?!
