failure = fuel

We get lots of questions …. some super random “What products does Amie use in her hair?” (answer: i’m not real sure but it includes something from Wal-Mart), or “Is your accent real?” (100%. We’re proud of being raised in North East Texas, where the twang is as thick as the pine trees (for more on that, read HERE … we’ve actually lost a lot of our good ole East Texas twang over the years).

However, the most common questions we get are: 1) “how did you start the business?”, 2)”are you going to be on TV again?” and 3) “how do you work together as sisters?”.

Here’s your answer to #1!

Here’s a throwback pic of Amie and me styling the first shoot of her and Mom’s pillows out in our pasture in Overton, Texas.

Anddddd… here’s one of our first pics of the 3 of us in the early days of what would become one wild and unpredictable ride … the life and times of Junk Gypsy.

Let us know if you have any other big, burning questions! We’ll keep answering ’em during our QT time together!

    Hi! I really enjoyed your video. Thank so much for taking the time to make it and explaining more about your start. It’s always so interesting to hear how folks started. I’m looking forward to questions #2 and #3 being answered. I always enjoyed your tv show and I’m a retired gal, so not your age at all, but I love your ideas and your creativity! And one question I have, probably silly, but when did you get your great old pickup truck? I’d love one of those!

    I absolutely fell in love with your style and special touch when I saw you on HGTV. I’ve watched every episode I could find, multiple times. I watched you in Facebook as well. I so wish HGTV, DIY, etc would start your shows again. Keep on Junkin’.
