Announcement   Looking for repurposed, recycled, reinvented clothing and accessories? This is the place. Call it sustainable chic, salvage style, trashion or whatever name you like. In the end, it's all about re-using resources instead of throwing things away.

Nearly everything here is made of repurposed material -- sweaters having a second life as purses or tote bags, jewelry made from leftover yarn or fabric and reconstructed costume jewelry, flirty re-created camisoles and denim jackets appliqued with upcycled embellishments of all kinds.

Different? Absolutely! But life's too short for ordinary -- that's our motto! Learn more about the recycling process and what's in the works at my blog -- http://naughtymonkeys.wordpress.com.

The monkeys love special orders!! If you see something you like but would prefer a different color, size or material, just hit the "contact naughtymonkeys" link on the right side of the page, and we'll talk about it. Most things here are one of a kind anyway, so while they can't be duplicated, there are plenty of other possibilities.

Finally, don't let the economy get in the way of looking good! A small deposit will hold any item and the balance can paid any way that works for you.

*****Welcome Tranquility Trail friends and fans!! If you're looking for bunny-approved pine cones, this is the place (just click on the link on the right that says "Pet Stuff"). The pine cones for sale here are sustainably grown and harvested without the use of chemicals of any kind. Unless you live in a forest, it's hard to find pine cones more natural than these. Even better, 100% of the pine cone sales go directly to Tranquility Trail! So hop to it -- order a box of pine cones and -- as the song says (sort of) -- make some bunny happy! ****

This fabulous scarf was a custom order/collaboration with 1000doves. Co-creating was such a fun and easy process that resulting in a unique, one-of-a-kind accessory. Workmanship is top notch and materials are high quality and beautifully combined with fun textures. I hope this will be one of many such experiences with this seller.

Extremely lightweight summery scarf. Great for afternoon/evening wear. Another great scarf purchase for me from 1000doves.

Orange is not normally by color however, I loved the look of this scarf and the combination of materials and textures that made it look so unique. It is even better in person. I plan to wear it with blue chambray shirts among other things. Love the quality and workmanship.

Greetings from the naughty monkeys! Actually, the monkeys are my imaginary friends, but let's just keep that between us, okay? etsy just seems like a great place to let our imaginations come out and play.

So now that you're here, feel free to look around, ask questions and get in touch with your creative side. Many of the items here -- especially the bracelets and other jewelry -- can be replicated in other colors, themes and sizes. So you dream it and I'll do my best to make it come true.

A few details: I try to re-use existing materials (cast-off clothing, textiles and jewelry) as much as possible. In other words, more creativity, not more landfills! Reuse works beautifully with my addiction to the Wabi Sabi philosophy, the belief that true beauty is found in the imperfect and that cherished, older, worn objects are preferable to new. Plus, it's also really, really fun to discover the other uses that are in every object.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Money Order
  • Check
Returns and exchanges
Nothing is more important to me than knowing that people are delighted with the things they buy here. I would much rather accept a return than insist someone keep something they don't want. Shopping online is all about trust. Buying something here should not be like playing roulette. If you have an issue with a purchase, please let me know so we can find a way to resolve it. And if we can't, the purchase price will be refunded. Making a sale is not as important as creating more happiness in this world.
Payment
PayPal is the preferred form of payment. Checks are fine, but please understand that it takes 7-10 days for them to clear.

If you fall in love with something here but can't quite afford it right now, you can use the layaway option. I'll hold your item for a small deposit and you can pay it off in installments. Please convo me for details.

If you change your mind about a purchase before it's shipped, please feel free to cancel the order. You can cancel after it's shipped, of course, but will have to pay for sending it to and from the shop.
Shipping
Need something overnight? Just say so. Priority Mail is reliable and only takes a few days, but I'll ship by any method you like and as quickly as humanly possible (i.e., within 24 hours). To keep mailing charges low, I'll combine shipping fees on multiple purchases. Please convo me with the details of what you're interested in and your location, and I'll provide an estimate on shipping costs.

Insurance is available; just let me know when you order. International orders are welcome, but be aware that getting items through customs is a slow and tedious process, so orders may take several weeks to arrive.
Additional policies and FAQs
Yes, I do gift wrap!! In fact, I LOVE to gift wrap. Fees depend on the size of the object and the wrapping materials used, but generally run less than $5. Let me know what theme you have in mind and I'll provide a more detailed estimate, photos, etc.
