Monk's Trunk is Hangin' In for Early Spring!!

Monk's Trunk is changing hands and planning for reopening..

New management, folks, is grateful to the store's former owner and originator, and to the wonderful customers for the inspiration to help keep this great shop going.  We are seeking a new location, and resuming planning in December! 

Stay tuned to the blog and our facebook page for updates.. We have an email list as well, and you can be added in a flash if you'd like, just put in a word. 

Merry winter, hope to see you all again soon.

Prospect Park Benefit = Success!

Thanks to everyone who came out to our 2nd Annual Prospect Park Playgrounds Benefit this weekend. Despite the downpour Saturday morning, we managed to raise over $1,300 for the playgrounds, all by recycling kids clothing and selling it affordably. Win win!



Hate money? Donate your things to Prospect Park's Playground Committee!

We're happy to announce that we've just started an account for Prospect Park's Playgrounds Committee. So if you'd like to donate your things instead of consigning, just mention it when you drop your things off and we'll see that they get added to this special nonprofit account. 

We all seem to notice when the sandbox sand gets low or when the water isn't on during a hot, summer day. But it's easy to forget how much work (much of it volunteer) and money goes into maintaining the Park as an essential, free public resource. During the summer, we're in the Park several times a week and couldn't live without it. So the question isn't whether you should donate but how much. More info and a direct donation form here.
