WOW! What a Great Surprise!
Last night at the awards ceremony held during the Buyers Market of American Craft in Philadelphia, Max's was named as one of NICHE magazine's Top Retailers of 2008! What a great surprise and fabulous honor! Quoting directly from the press release, "the annual Top Retailer Awards program recognizes craft retailers who are committed to fair business practices and to growing and strengthening the North American craft community." We were one of 33 retailers and gallery owners from across North America who were recognized by the magazine in various categories. What I think is especially great about this award is that artists nominate the retailers who they think are deserving, and then the nominees are judged by other retailers from across North America. I am so proud that Max's has earned this kind of respect in its short 2-year life! A huge thank you to all of our artists whose creativity is at the core of Max's success story, as you enable us to bring beautiful work to our customers.
