Big changes at Monk's Trunk
for the delay folks, here's the deal: Monk's Trunk will soon be
re-opening in our old location (sigh), at 23 Hawthorne Street. When we closed a little over a
month ago, we had hopes to open nearby on Flatbush as a temporary "pop
up" store with below-market rent. But to make a long, tedious story
short, that didn't pan out. The store has grown to the extent that it
needs a normal commercial space -- one that doesn't
require customers to lug strollers full of babies up a flight of stairs
*or* take up my family's dining room with heat-treating equipment.
After a couple of months of soul-searching, however, I regret to report
that Elyssa and I are not the ones to do. We will only remain in this
location to sell items through the fall/winter season.
Would anyone like to run a children's consignment store? We would be thrilled to hand off the business to someone interested in opening it in a commercial space. If you are seriously interested and have the capital to do it, please get in touch soon.
In the mean time, we will be reopening Thursday, July 11th, with tons of bargain on summer things. The hours will be irregular in the summer but our website and Facebook will be kept up-to-date, and hours will be expended as the fall season approaches.
HOURS THIS WEEK
Thursday, July 11 - 10 to 6
Friday, July 12 - 10 to 4
Saturday - 10 to 6
Sunday - 10 to 6
Hours for next week will be posted shortly.
If you are a consignor and brought things in this spring, your consignment period will automatically be extended for six weeks. You are also welcome to come and pick up any unsold items that haven't expired; as usual, we ask you to contact us a day in advance to let us know and pull things for you.
