What is a monkeybox?

When I was a little girl, we had a pet monkey named Amanda. My Dad worked in the produce business, so each night he brought home that days culls in a big box - spotty cucumbers, pithy apples, limp celery, moldy oranges and the like. We called it a monkeybox. It was really just trash, but my Mom would take each piece of fruit and trim it, pare it and cut it up to make a beautiful fruit platter for Amanda. Even though it was deemed trash by one, it still had life left in it and was good for the purpose we needed it. That's how I live my life - thrifting, yard saling, looking for another's trash to be my treasure.

Opening (and Closing) of Junk Shop

I've been adding things to my shop, getting ready to open it up. I wanted it chock full of goodies to make it worthwhile. After I added my 5th item, it said, NO MORE! I can only have five items at once (for free, of course), then it is from $50.00-$250.00 a year for the shop. So, I will have to find another site to use or just make up my own. Until, then, please take a look at my shop - because it is so dadgum cute!
If you do see anything you want, (and I don't plan on selling anything with only five items up for sale), just email me at monkeybox at juno dot com instead of adding it to the cart.
I'm so sad! Love those fat little monkey dudes!


  1. TOO BAD... the shop looked GREAT - keep us posted at your new local!

  2. The link says that the site doesn't exist!

  3. Have you thought about using Etsy? I think you can list vintage things on there, right? It might be worth looking into!

    Sorry your other shop didn't work out!



I love my comments. I'd love to respond to everyone, but if you don't have an email address tied to your ID, please sign your name so I will know who you are! It makes it nice to know who is saying what. Now, leave a comment! Please? ;o)

I Can See You!

Look at my Visitors!
