Maker Monday: MonkeyFly Memories

Welcome to our very first Maker Monday blog spotlight!

On Monday’s we will be featuring a different maker in a dedicated blog post & on our social media feeds. We carry so many incredible brands in the store and want to make sure the world knows about them! Today, we’d like to introduce you to MonkeyFly Memories. Your go to for all the cheeky things you didn’t know you needed. From doormats to travel wine cups, I bet they will have you giggling!

We started working with Lindsay, Kalvin & little Lukas in June of last year, hey it’s almost our one year vendor-versary! We went from a couple door mats here and there to having Lindsay restock us EVERY WEEK. We’re so glad you guys love their stuff as much as we do. The cheekier the better is our motto! They make the perfect gifts for that sassy person in your life or someone who could use a laugh!

 

Some of our top sellers in the store come from MonkeyFly Memories! We currently carry their doormats, pot holders, tea towels & beer koozies. For the summer we brought in their wine tumblers & enamel camping mugs. Who doesn’t need a wine tumbler…with a straw?! Pretty much the best invention ever. The camping mugs are perfect for sitting around the fire drinking coffee & baileys or hot coco with the kids. FEELS LIKE SUMMER!

 

THE MonkeyFly FAMJAM

 

“Being a vendor in the local space has been a dream come true. We never knew when we started our little business that we would get to a point where our items would be featured in a store front. The Local Space has an amazing fun vibe which is what we are all about here at MonkeyFly. We started MonkeyFly Memories in May 2017 when we finally thought why not sell items we love making. We have always been pretty creative and loved making gifts for everyone. Handmade is just always better than bought from a big box store. This adventure has been an amazing ride and we are so thankful for the team at the Local Space and helping us make a dream side hustle almost become a full time gig!”

 

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

I love learning about the meanings behind business names & Monkyfly Memories is no exception:

“MonkeyFly Memories comes from both of our children. Our son Lukas’s nickname is Monkey. This kid climbs anything and everything and has done so from an early age. Fly is in memory of our beautiful daughter who’s in heaven. In 2014 our little Payton was born sleeping just before her due date. Butterflies are the symbol for loss and more specifically child loss. In the hospital they put a butterfly on your door so the staff know that there was a loss.”

Here at the Local Space you are not only supporting one store, you are supporting 100’s of small businesses & their families. Helping to turn someones dream into a reality & putting your hard earned money back into your community. Thank you for your support over the past few years. We couldn’t grow, accept more vendors & help more small businesses succeed without you!
