Interesting Info: Nugget joined the Monkee's of Virginia Beach Team during the Winter of 2016. Nugget was abandoned but thankfully found and brought to the Vance County Animal Shelter. When Nugget was registered at the animal shelters the wonderful people that make up the Ruin Creek Animal Protection Society took his picture and put him on the internet for adoption. Abby saw Nugget and instantly fell in love with him.
Nugget was in very poor condition when he was found. He was hungry and was experiencing some health issues as a result of being malnourished. A few trips to the animal hospital and a few good meals and Nugget began to show his smile and personality when he moved to Virginia Beach to the place he now calls home.
Nugget's loves so much to meet new people and to have his picture made with our guest and children that visit the store each day. He loves being apart of the store and wants to meet YOU!!

Interesting Info: Abby's love of the fashion industry and passion for helping people allowed her to get a job while in college at Monkee's of Raleigh where she worked several years with a team of people she admired and loved so much. After graduating Meredith College she knew that she wanted to continue in this business and begin a career. When the opportunity for a Monkee's to open in Virginia Beach presented itself, Abby knew this was exactly what she wanted to do and where she wanted to be.
Abby has enjoyed opening Monkee's of Virginia Beach and has loved finding the perfect most special and unique lines to bring to the Norfolk, Virginia Beach area from markets all over the United States. She loves presenting the right outfits, with the right look for any and every occasion.
Since living in Virginia Beach, Abby has feel in love with not only the area but the people and has created some very special friendships in a very short time. Abby is so impressed with the wide variety of food and restaurants this area has to offer as well as well as the beautiful beaches.
