The "All Things Dreamy" Linky Party #1

Welcome to our All Things Dreamy linky party #1! I'm super excited for the upcoming weeks, as we meet up with fun new people and read about Dreamy things all over the globe. Are you ready to get started? Let's go!!!

All Things Dreamy, at Max's Haus
If you are ever in the hill country of Texas, you just may want to plan a trip to New Braunfels and hit Max's Haus. Max's is one of my most favorite places to shop, both for myself and for others. As you peruse the pictures below, you’ll see just what I mean! Max’s is much more intriguing than your typical antique store. It’s a combo of amazing vintage finds and incredibly talented artists, with prices that you just can’t beat. Each room in the store is unique and so are the treasures that you'll find there.

I am also quite fond of Max’s, because of its owner, Norma. Norma has a heart for stay-at-home moms desiring to have a creative outlet. Almost every corner of her store is represented by local ladies (most are moms!) who are given the opportunity to display their wares here, in exchange for very low rent and minimal commission. In other words, Norma helps many of us to have an outside life – three cheers for an outside life! I no longer have the pleasure of selling at Max's Haus, due to our move to Colorado. But, I still have the pleasure of shopping there when I'm in New Braunfels!

Ok, so now onto the dreamy finds that await You, at Max’s Haus!

When you see this sign, Stop! It's time to shop...



Here's the store...



The black & white room. I'll take one of each.




I love these artsy signs. They mix well with shabby or mod, priced from $8 to $68



Prior to being a mom, I was a teacher, so this is one of my favorites...



The kitchen. Full of vintage kitschy treasures and gourmet stuff...



I fell in love with this scale, priced at $55



This is a set of paper dolls with all the outfits included! I couldn't find a price...



An original from the Junior Miss pageant. It includes the program and all kinds of other goodies, priced at $38.



This artist's specialty is fun photos of the central Texas area...most are pics from my old stompin' grounds - Austin! Priced from $26 to $30.



This room always has an old Frenchy feel to it. I'm loving the chandeliers - the one on the left is priced at $120.



If you look just beyond the chandeliers, you'll notice this flower art. I don't use flowers much to decorate, but I could definitely use these. Each is so different and adds a ton of character to a room. Priced from $15 to $95.



On your way out, be sure to peruse the lawn and shed areas...more fun & funky things await you!



I hope you enjoyed our little tour of All Things Dreamy, at Max's Haus. Now it's my turn to see what Dreamy things you all have written about this week...

Max's Haus looks like an amazing place to shop! It seems like it has a little something for everyone, no matter your decorating style. I love that scale, and I see several things on the lawn that I know I'd be interested in!

I love your dreamy blog! I have a heart for such things, but unfortunately am lacking in the design talent/crafty department. I love looking and dreaming, though! That Max's looks pretty amazing.

Max's is in central TX, just between Austin and San Antonio. Sadly they are not online, but that does save me a lot of money!

Natasha said...

Looks like a great place to visit! Thanks for posting about it. I haven't been to Texas but would love to on our next trip to the US.

I am a semi-retired teacher. I only work once or twice a week doing substitute work. So nice to meet another teacher, especially one from Colorado where I have been and where I LOVED!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

Lisa said...

Looks like such a cute little store! I love those black and white signs...maybe a DIY is in store?

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Neat store!

Thanks so much for stopping by the Back Porch and your sweet comment. I remember those diaper days as if it was yesterday.:-)

We moved to our present home from a 114 acre farm. Gardening and growing things are in our blood. Our yard and garden are J's hobby, mostly. It's difficult to farm for nearly 60 years then suddenly adjust to a small space, but he manages and enjoys. I think it shows.

The Pleasures of Homemaking said...
