The Non Stop Prop Shop became ‘the place’ to come to for all movies, commercials and still photo shoots for props of all kinds. Along with furnishing props, Monica also began providing production coordination services. At the same time her design talents demanded her time on set, establishing her as a first-rate set designer. In 2000 Monica sold the Non Stop Prop Shop in order to free up her time to devote all of her energy producing for her growing list of clients. From New York, Miami, California and all over the Caribbean, Monica can provide a production with the utmost personal attention.
