who what where
All things bright and beautiful! Globally sourced, handmade, unique, ethical, irresistible. Specialising in textiles, beadwork, whimsy and whatnot.
Like all great enterprises, the Monkeys were founded not only from desire but necessity. A family run business with Jennifer Turner (mother of four) being the lifeblood. Over the past twenty years Jennifer has inspired many through her unique perspective on the world. Her style and generosity are evident in her dress, enthusiasm and opulent displays.
Her sister Roz keeps her finger on the pulse by designing and creating one of a kind artworks guaranteed to make you smile.
Dana 'the daughter' has been the face of the business for the past decade and is re-asserting her in-store presence after the birth of her two beautiful babies, Esther 2 and Elvis 10 months. Needless to say, her face looks a little different these days so we'll see how that goes!
Esther is already in training. She has thus far mastered the eftpos machine and has demonstrated flair for gift wrapping! We wouldn't be able to do all our shopping and (grand)mothering and daydreaming without the help of our beautiful monkey girls who keep the show going when we are missing.
A traditional bricks and mortar shop located in the heart of Bowral, New South Wales Southern Highlands, we adore our locals and our visitors from near and far. Whilst we have had an online store for a few years, it's time for an overhaul. We hope this new format will be more user friendly, for us and you!
Selling only that which brings joy to our hearts, we hope to bring cheer and colour to yours.
Team Monkey xx
