Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Wow!  It’s really hard for me to believe that we’re at the end of the year!  At this time last year we were finalizing paint colors and maneuvering in between boxes, as we had already begun to pack up our old location in preparation to move.   2011 was an incredibly busy and exciting year for Max’s as we not only moved the store, but we also celebrated our 5th birthday, and were named America’s #1 Coolest Small Store by INSTORE magazine!  I can’t thank all of you, our customers, enough for your support and encouragement along the way – not only this year but throughout Max’s entire life – because I couldn’t have done all of this without you.  As we turn the page and start a new year, I want to wish you and your families a very happy and healthy 2012. I am very optimistic about what 2012 will bring for all of us, and wish you only the best.  Happy Holidays!


Ringing in the Holidays with an Anne Sportun Trunk Show!

You know it, you tell us you love it and you wait for it every year! Of course, I’m talking about this weekend’s trunk show featuring the work of Anne Sportun.  Since the very first day we opened our doors, Anne’s work has been one of our customers’ absolute favorites, and year after year, she never disappoints.  Anne has done an entire line in black diamonds (how about these stunners?), and we’ve been selling those pieces almost as quickly as they arrive.

To get things going this weekend, I hope that you’ll join us on Thursday, December 15, as we ring in the season with a little holiday soiree.  Join us for some tasty treats – mostly chocolate, of course – as we and other retailers here at Excelsior & Grand stay open late so that you can get all of your holiday shopping finished.  You’ll be able to enjoy special events from the other retailers, along with a sleigh ride.  Ok, so there’s no snow outside, so maybe it will be more like a carriage ride.  Either way, it will be a great evening here at E&G, and I hope that you’ll join us as wrap up this season’s incredible line-up of designer events with the Anne Sportun Trunk Show.  The show runs between Thursday, December 15 at 6 and Sunday, December 18 at 5, with our holiday soiree on Thursday between 6-9.
