Last Month but Not the Last of MOnkeyhouse!!!!

After a long and wonderful run Monkeyhouse Toys in Silverlake will be closing it's doors at the end of the month. Due to landlord greed, Arg. Mayra has helped so many artists, children and charities at this location and has created an atmosphere of love and family. Among all of the sadness and disappointment of this closing. I am sure we haven't seen the last of Mayra, Monkeyhouse and her vision yet!!! So keep posted for the next adventure and chapter in this great Gallery!!!!

Monkeyhouse Toys & Art Gallery proudly presents 3 art shows in December!!! Two will open this Saturday and run through the end of the month and Mr. Toast's Cash & Carry Mini Art Show on the "Black Wall" will open on Dec. 12, and also run through the end of the month. All pieces will be available to take home after purchase. We will also have artisans and crafters selling their wondrous wares in front of the shop on Saturday starting at 1pm. Great art and handmade items for holiday gift giving!
