The brainchild of a dude who spends more time at Habitat For Humanity than Jimmy Carter, Dracula's Monkey is in the business of resurrection -- that is, salvaging old furniture and other materials from dumpsters, and re-inventing them as pop-art furniture to be sold in the South Waterfront shop alongside vintage toys, lighters, and more.

Dracula's Monkey is the brainchild of a dude called Pat Snyder, who is on a mission to provide PDXers with unique, recycled furniture that he's salvaged and recovered, some from landfills. Snyder hand-paints and designs each piece himself, transforming old furniture into vibrant, pop-art goods, selling them in a store that's also offering up vintage toys, lighters, and more.
