Create Your Own French Country Style Space and Celebrate Spring at Maxwell’s 9.13.34 in Hoboken

Here is a note from Deb Maxwell, owner of Maxwell’s 9.13.34 at 508 Court Street in Hoboken. This week it is all about French Country Style …

“Dear Friends,

Regardless of how much or little space we have, a little creativity can make an escape without leaving home a reality! A tiny balcony, fire escape or even a sliver of sidewalk can transport you to the south of France (absent of jet lag). How nice to have a space dedicated to a glass of wine, dinner al fresco and relaxing with a good book (or nook).

Top Left : Bistro Table & 2 Chairs circa 1960′s from an alternate on line retailer $650.00 + $150.00 shipping & handling.

It has good age, the perfect amount of chipped paint & is a gem… at $800.00 delivered.

Top Right: Fire escape inspiration!

Bottom Left: Vintage Forest Green French Country Style Metal Collapsible Bistro Garden Stable and Arm Chair-   table 32″ Diam X 29″ H / Chair 22″ W X 34″ H to top of back $125.00

Priced as 2 piece set. This is a French country style classic inside or out. It has just enough wear, chipping and distress to give it that provincial character. Both pieces collapse for portability. Great for “spill over” service. A beautiful round tablecloth makes this table a casual to formal magical delight!

Available in store and online at www.maxwells91334.com. Go to Furniture, then to Furniture.

The Red Doors will be open to greet you this Satruday and Sunday 12 noon to 7 pm. Happy Mother’s Day! Mom in town?
Do bring her by for a little eclectic shopping!

Fondly,
Deb Maxwell”

Court Street 2 HDR 2 Cropped

Today’s Photos of the Day are of local favorite Court Street Restaurant using HDR technique. I decided to include two views. The brick looks very nice and this is achieved by upping the contrast. I stayed away from playing around with the saturation on these shots as I wanted to let the brick speak for itself. If bricks could only talk.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Court Street in Hoboken March 17th and 18th

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Court Street In Hoboken!

Join them on Saturday, March 17th and Sunday March 18th to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!

Featuring their Famous Corned Beef and Cabbage as well as

Their Regular Menu and Hot Corned Beef Sandwiches in the Bar

Schedule:

  • Saturday 4:30pm – 11pm
  • Sunday 4:30pm – 10pm
  • Brunch on Sunday 11am – 3pm

Court Street Restaurant and Bar

Address: 61 Sixth Street Hoboken, NJ 07030
Phone: 201.795.4515

Note: TheBoken.com had the Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner yesterday and it did not disappoint. The meat was very tender and almost fell off the fork and had a very nice taste to it. It might not be as monstrous in portions as their Monday night Prime Rib special but it hit the spot and at $15.99 is a fair value. Every year Court Street prepares this special meal and regulars do come back for it year after year. As a result reservations are recommended.

Spring Fever at Maxwell’s 9.13.34!

Here is an update from Deb Maxwell of Maxwell’s 9.13.34 boutique located ta 508 Court Street in Hoboken about some of her Spring inspired items…

Spring Fever at Maxwell’s 9.13.34!

Dear Friends,

Out with the short days of winter and in with flowers and sunshine!  We have some home goods and accessories in store  to help Spring-ize your personal sanctuary ….

Top left:  Venetian Quince Cameo Boked Luxe Candle  8.7 oz. 45+ hour burn time $27.95

The cultivation of the quince fruit may have preceded apples, but it was the Italians who first put the quince in a cookbook, Apicius, which gives recipes for stewing quince with honey and combining them with leeks. And so it is that Venetian Quince was created, a bold combination of three very different fruits – crisp apple, peach nectar and zesty grapefruit – with a top note of fresh air accord, flowering sheer white lily, and the invigorating pairing of crushed leaves and dew-drenched grass. From the stone objects d’art of ancient Greece and the gems created for
the Roman Emperors to Napoleon’s coronation crown and Queen Victoria’s beloved personal collection, the carved relief cameo has remained a timeless classic. This luxe candle captures the texture, richness and singular beauty of these historical motifs in the Cameo Collection, each hand-poured in decorative white glass and packaged in embossed, silver-lined boxes for “no wrapping paper needed” gift giving.  Hand poured in the USA!
