Viewers just love them. This weekend the Bridal show is on and they are giving away 10 goodie bags and 10 of my sock monkeys are in the bags.
Then next week they are having a Pajama party at Art Vans, this is a ladys only night. They are also giving away more of my sock monkeys. I will be there for the Pajama party.

What started my passion for making sock monkeys?
About 2 years a go, I lost my job due to lack of work. I have been sewing since I was 4 years old. Well I decided to use the best skill I had, so I tarted making sock monkeys, when they started to sell, I made more sock monkeys, then they were really selling and at that time I had them in my other shop dulces creations, here is my very first sock monkey that I had made and sold.
Very scary looking I will have to say.
When I stated to sell a lot of them, I open up a new shop and this is The monkey shop
Since then I have made so many changes on them that I think I have finally mastered my cute sock monkeys.
So my passion for sewing has made me a great business that I think will be around for a long long time.
Its been 2 years now and I have sold well over 2000 sock monkeys world wide.
You may find them in a boutique in Indiana, Arizona, California and even right here in Grand Rapids MI. I also sell them at the local Artisan Market. They are becoming vary famous, They have been on TV and the Grand Rapids Press. Many children and adults are holding one of my sock monkeys when they go to sleep or just for comfort. Because they are Cute, Adorable, well made, machine washable, and baby safe people love them.
So before you go and buy your next toy at just any place please stop by the Monkey shop to see what is new.
