You know her, you love her jewelry, and now you can meet her! You, our customers, have made Jamie Cassavoy one of our most popular artists (we've carried her work since day 1!), and now she is coming to Max's for a trunk show. The show is scheduled for Friday, June 12 and Saturday, June 13 and we can't wait. Jamie is best known for her nature-inspired jewelry, and whether it’s gold leaf earrings, a silver branch necklace adorned with some turquoise or garnet berries, or a big gold and silver ring with a stone in the middle such as the rings pictured here, her work always seems to bring a smile to people’s faces. Of course, you don’t need to wait until the show to see her work, as we’ve just received several new pieces from her that are in our display cases already. But I do hope that you'll put the trunk show on your calendars, as she'll be bringing A LOT of new things with her! Want to see more?......click here!

Just a quick reminder that we're closing early tonight (5pm). We're going to have a brief staff meeting and then it's off to do some celebrating as we get ready to start our 4th year in business! I hope this doesn't inconvenience anyone and I appreciate your understanding.

I am so happy that Max's is now carrying the work of Los Angeles jewelry designer Pamela Froman! Pamela's work features handmade pieces and these earrings and the necklace come from her "Crushed" collection, named after her special hand-hammering technique. While her jewelry is available in white, yellow, pink and green gold, I think that some of the most interesting pieces (like the necklace pictured here) is a combination of the golds. In 2008, Pamela was named as one of the 10 Best New Jewelry Designers by InDesign Magazine, and also received a Town & Country Couture Design Award for Best of Gold, and she's been racking up the awards this year too! I am proud to tell you that we are the only ones in the Twin Cities carrying this beautiful work and I'd love it if you stopped in to take a look!

I can hardly believe it, but this Friday will mark the 3rd anniversary of Max's opening its doors! While the time has gone by so quickly, I do have to say that life before Max's is getting a little bit fuzzy! Thank you SOOOOO much to everyone who has been so supportive....our customers, our artists and chocolatiers, our families...everyone! I am certain that neither we as an organization nor I as an individual could have done it without you! We are going to take a bit of time to reflect on the past 3 years and do some planning for the future this Wednesday and, to do so, are going to close a bit early. We're closing at 5, but will be back at it on Thursday morning at 10. I hope this won't cause any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. Here's to many more years together!

As promised, we've finished the chocolate wall! Of course, we have even more chocolate than this in the store, but we thought it would be fun to put all of our bars together as the packaging on them is so pretty...we think that some of them are works of art in themselves!
