Put up your “Monkey Fists”

Knot Doorstop at Glam Vintage & Moderne

When customers came in looking for monkey fists, Richard almost sent them to another store that seems to have a penchant for all things monkey related.  Fortunately the customer spotted the knot doorstops and said…”Great you still have them!”

According to  Wikipedia,  “A monkey’s fist or monkey paw is a type of knot, so named because it looks somewhat like a small bunched fist/paw. It is tied at the end of a rope to serve as a weight, making it easier to throw, and also as an ornamental knot. This type of weighted rope can be used as an improvised weapon…”

Fortunately, Richard did not increase the price upon realization that they are multifunctional.
