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.

And the Winner Is........

I wrote down all the names from the comments, plus everyone that took the time to email me and then I had The Breadman draw a name.  

And the winner is.........

Shinny/ Shanna !!!!!


I do so appreciate all the encouragement you guys gave me.  I wish I could send everyone a goodie box.  But, I'm no Oprah -  "YOU get a goodie box.  You get a goodie box!"  But, I wish I was!  

And, guess what else?  I signed up to do another market!  I'm craaaaaaazy!  This one is smaller, and only a one day affair and it's INSIDE plus they supply the tables and such.  So, all you have to do it take your stuff.  This is a Holiday bazaar, so I will mostly take the jewelry, vintage Christmas, framed Ephemera, the Flash Cards and some vintage housewares.  It's a 10 x 10 spot so I get half to fill.  Why only half?  Because Lara and I are going to set up together.  This one should be a lot less stress and a lot more FUN!  It's November 16th, so I have time to prepare and I SWEAR I won't yap about it every single day!  :)
