Fun at The Monkey Basket in Helena AL!



The Monkey Basket ~ Ann Allen



Located in historic Old Town Helena, The Monkey Basket is a great little shop that is owned and operated by Judy Ellington.  She makes gift baskets for all occasions and can ship them just about anywhere.  She has some great items in the shop.......gourmet foods, candles from Tyler Candle Company and lots of other cool stuff.

One of my favorites were the Slingshot they are in their own Monkey Basket!  They have capes and masks and SCREAM when launched.  They are hilarious and so much fun to play with!

Hi Ann, What a cute store! I too love the Sling Shot Monkeys, that looks like fun!  and the shirt and hat! LOL!! At least people would know exactly what kind of a day it was.  Thanks for the tour of Judy's shop.  Are those candles on the shelf behind you??

Ann - Sounds like a really fun place.  I'm glad you are in Alabama, rather than California.  I have a grand-daughter, who loves monkeys and collects them. . .I'd be bankrupt, if that store was closer.

The candles are scrumptious......they are they best I have found and affordable too.  Call me and let me hook you up with Judy!

What a cute little building (The Monkey Basket).  It reminds me of something I have seen but I haven't quite placed it yet.

So does one get one's slingshot monkey back if one shoots it at someone without them shooting it back? LOL
