My Latest Find


My latest treasure is this circa 1950s Hollywood Regency monkey obelisk I found at my favorite local consignment store for $85.00. At 26 inches tall, it makes quite a statement, and I am a sucker for anything with monkeys.

You have done it again. This piece is fabulous, and, I must confess, stirred in me the same feelings of envy I experienced when you shared your $35 monkey epergne. You have a true gift for spotting bargains. Congratulations on a fabulous new addition to your collection, and thank you for the inspiration to seek out some treasures of my own.
