Wow....I have been busy "Junker" since my last post! Canton was great but sooooo COLD! I have to give a big shout out and thank-you to all the people that came out and shopped our booth! We appreciate it so much and look forward to the new year! I have not been doing to much "junkin"since Canton as I had to get my house all ready for Christmas! We did spend last weekend in Gruene though.....saw Jerry Jeff Walker at Gruene Hall and hit all the cute lil shops! The town was so festive for Christmas! The next few days I will be wrapping, and getting ready for our family gathering on Christmas Eve! I hope all of you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas and hope to see ya'll in Canton New Years weekend! Cathy

Tuesday, December 8, 2009

Well the year is almost over and Cathy and I have been blessed to have made it another year doing what we love.....It is hard to believe that it has been 2 years this month since we left our school jobs to start our own business. We have never looked back...only forward.
Canton was a great one once again, with one exception. I had a little accident and tore off the front bumper of Jeri's Jeep with my trailer Wednesday night. I cut it a little too close when we were trying to set up, and I had just told Pam how easy my long trailer was to pull. I guess I better watch what I say huh? The weather was a little cold, but I would much rather be cold and just pile on the clothes than be hot like it was in August. I did it again..... burned up an outfit with the propane heater...I have burned up one skirt and two dresses now.....oh well, at least I did not catch on fire.
Thanks to all of my customers and vendors that buy from me. I truly appreciate all of your business and look forward to working with you next year. Take care and have a Merry Christmas and a Great New Year...See you soon!

Deidra and I have been busy this month getting ready for our last Canton weekend before Christmas and have lots of goodies for our shoppers! We will have many gift items for those of you that are making that list!! Anyway, we wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving and let all of you know that we are soooooo thankful for our friends and customers that come out and see us each month! Happy Turkey Day and Go Cowboys!

Great day today! Had lunch at Lone Star Antique Mall in the tea room with my Aunt, cousin and mom. The food there is soooo yummy! I ran in to Katy of Katies Rose Cottage and Tina who has a great booth...flea chic! Also checked out Jennifer's new boutique in the mall.....she has some awesome, cute vintage look clothing! After leaving the antique mall, we proceeded to another great junking and shopping place, Golightlys Gallery on Davis Blvd. This has always been one of my favorite places! Tomorrow I will once again start painting and working on goodies for our next Canton......only one more Canton weekend before Christmas!! Where has this year gone??? I guess time really does fly when you are having fun!! Have a GREAT WEEKEND and HAPPY JUNKIN! Cathy

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Boy am I glad to still see sunshine today. I don't think that I will be tired of it for a while now.

We had a great month at Canton and only had 1 day to gripe about the weather, other than that it was beautiful! We dressed for two days in our Halloween costumes, but only got pictures for 1 of the days. We had a fun time and it seemed that the customers enjoyed it also! We are already thinking ahead for next year as to what we will dress as. Any ideas?

Thanks to all who came to see us, we look forward to seeing you all every month, and we always enjoy meeting new customers and friends.

Next month we will have lots of Christmas items, hopefully plenty to go around..I guess I better get busy then huh?

Happy Sunny Tues.!! Well today is CRUNCH day as we leave in the morning for Canton weekend. It looks like the weather is going to be nice so if you have a chance come out and "trick or treat" with us! Again, we have lots and lots of goodies this month! We will be dressed up on Fri. and Sat. again this year, so if you pass by the booth and think it is not us, It is.........have a great week, and hope to see ya this weekend........Happy Junkin, GOULS GONE JUNKIN' !!!!!

Hello Everyone!

I was just so excited and had to show some pictures of the decorations I did for Halloween. I did not get to decorate last year because I was so busy, so this year my son wanted to make sure we got to do it. Anyway, since we did not make it for the Chapell Hill show, I had some extra time.
And yes, the Ouija Board that was sold in five minutes of the last show...was sold to me..yea!!!
Enjoy...don't you just love my witch...I do! Thanks Martha Stewart......

Happy Halloween!!!!!


Wednesday, October 7, 2009

WOW!! Like Deidra said, we had a wonderful Canton weekend! It was so nice to see some of our customers that only come out in the fall and spring. As always, we love seeing our friends that come every month! I love the fall and the kick off of the Holiday sure and check out the web site as Deidra posted some of our Halloween pics and then if you go to our gallery, we have pics of a few of our all time monthly customers! Also, check out our cute customer Megan who purchased an awesome vintage dress and fit her perfect! Guns Up Megan!! Well better go and start working on my jewelry...Have a great day and Happy Junkin! Cathy

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

WHEW! What a Canton weekend! Thanks to everyone who stopped by to see us and shop. We could not have asked for a better turn out this month. We were so low on stuff that Pam had to make a trip home to get more goodies! We ran out of Halloween pendants and then our Halloween decorations sold out. We will have more at the next Canton show, which will be Halloween weekend. Be sure to come see us, we will be dressing up again this year for all of our customers.

We will also have Thanksgiving and Christmas selections for the next show. Can you believe it is already that time of year again? This year has just flown by to me. I hope all of you that were at Warrenton and Round Top had a good show. From reading your blogs, it sure sounds like it was a great turn out. I better go for now, I need to get to work on some stuff for the Chappell Hill Show this weekend.

Thought I would take a "time out" and blog a little! We have had beautiful weather this past week......and it sure has been great for painting my furniture that I will be bringing to Canton! I have a beautiful bedroom set from the early 30's, some other accent tables and as always, lots of smalls! Deidra and Pam have been "burning it up" making new jewelry pendants! They are always creating new designs for our customers to choose from! Well thats all for now as it is Sonic happy hour and I have to go get my "fix" vanilla coke and then it is back to work getting ready for Canton......have a good afternoon and as always, Happy Junkin......Cathy

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Boy has this been a full and I have to say "sad" time for me and my family since I last wrote on our "junkin"blog! After our great Canton weekend, my mother-in-law passed away on 9-9-09. She had fought a long and hard battle with alzheimer's disease and really had struggled this past 3 weeks. We laid her to rest this past Mon. and now I am just trying to get myself in the mood to get ready for Canton! It does make me smile though to know that she is free of all her pain and watching down on those she left behind....she was such a kind and sweet lady! I am thankful for the rain we have had this past week, but I sure need the Sun to Shine again! Guess I will go get busy as I do have soooo much to work on! God Bless and have a great week!! Cathy

Monday, September 7, 2009

Just a quick note to say....Canton was wonderful! What a way to "kick" off the fall and holiday shopping! I was sooooo glad to be back! I must admit though, it was a little hard on me but after sleeping on and off all day today, I am bouncing back and can't wait to start finding some new treasure's to bring back next month! Deidra will be updating our blog with new pics this week, but I just want to give a big "SHOUT OUT" to all of our customers......without you, our "Girls Gone Junkin" business would not be what it is today! We appreciate all of you and look forward to seeing you again! Also, Thanks Denis of "Ruby Grace's" for featuring us on your blog with the great pics! HAPPY JUNKIN..Cathy

Monday, August 31, 2009

Just dropping in to say two more days and we will be on the road to Canton.....I must admit, that I am a little excited due to not getting to go last month! In fact, I woke up this morning at 4a.m. and started thinking about how I was going to set my furniture up! I think that might be a little OCD! Oh well.......anyway, I have a few pics to share of my bottles I have been blinging and also my bedroom "redo" project. We hope to see all of you in Canton! Happy JUNKIN.....Cathy

Friday, August 28, 2009

TGIF! Deidra, Pam and I have been working all week getting ready for Canton! I don't think I will ever get all the glitter off of me from working on my old bottles! I am sooooo looking forward to some cooler weather this weekend...low 90's sounds great....especially for painting furniture....right Steve? I will try to post some pics of my bottles and other items before we leave...oh yea, also of my bedroom since I redecorated! Happy Friday and always...Happy Junkin! Cathy

Monday, August 24, 2009

TGIM! Thank God It's Monday!

The reason that I am saying that is because school started today! I don't know if it was just me or that my son was just in a bad mood yesterday, but I did not think today would ever get here. I had a great summer with my son up until yesterday....he just griped and moaned all day about going back to school, plus he seems to think that he only needs a Kindergarten thru 6th grade education to get you thru life. Sure! What else could he possible learn? Instead of soaking up the sun or having fun up until the last minute before bed, he just seemed to hang around me and complain all day.
Then this morning, my husband lost his car keys.....needless to say this put him in a bad mood and he was complaining about that while my son was still complaining about having to go to school. We searched all over and tried to think of where the last place we saw his keys and wasted about 30 minutes doing that only to find out later that they were in his pants pocket the whole time, (and not the pants that he had on yesterday, but the pants that he actually had on the whole time we were looking for his keys!?!?!?!?!?) AAAAHHHHHAAHHH!!

Anyway, I have been working hard trying to get some new designs for this months Canton. I know that Cathy and Pam have also been working hard. We should have a full booth for you this month and great things to choose from. I am hoping that this Canton might be the last of the hot weather and that Autumn/Fall will come quickly. Please come by and say hello.

Also if you get a chance to get out to the grounds by the Civic Center try to visit with Juanita, with Southern Serenity, Row 53 spots 2088-2090. She is a member of our blog and is trying the flea market thing for the first time. Check out her website... Sounds like she will have some great shabby stuff to choose from.
Take care and hope to see you soon!

Today was a great Friday!! Deidra and Pam took me to lunch at the Lone Star antique mall tea room for a great lunch and fun conversation! I also got to check out some of my favorite booths there....if you ever have a chance you need to go! Then Pam and I proceeded to hit some of our favorite "junkin" stores looking for undiscovered treasures..and "yes" we did find some! Deidra was not able to join us, but we did think about her with every good find!! Now this was the first big outing that I have had in 8 weeks, so I felt like a bird out of her cage! Boot and all! Then my hubby took me out to dinner at Red Lobster for some yummy fish! Needless to say, my foot is tired and my pants are tight from eating out two meals today....but hey, LIFE IS GREAT! Have a good weekend! Cathy

Monday, August 17, 2009

OMG! Have you ever worked on your blog only to push a wrong button when finished and wonder where it went? Wellllllll, that is what just happened to me, so I will try again! Anyway, Happy Monday! Today I have been trying to catch up on some things around my house as I have been soooooo limited in my cleaning the past few weeks due to my surgery! Now my mom has been a big help, but no one cleans like yourself or myself...whatever! I did not know that so much dust can accumulate on all of my favorite treasures in such a short time! I also during my first few post surgery weeks decided that I would redo my master bedroom....guess I spent to much time in there and it started getting to me! I started by getting rid of our fufu, girly bed and getting a iron king size bed. It is amazing how much more room there is in a king...awwwww! It is a good thing my mom sews because now I needed new bedding! She has already whipped it up and I love it! Then I decided that I needed to declutter...I mean how many old frames can you have on one wall?? I am almost finished and will post some pics later. Sooooo as you see despite being in a recovering mode, the ole decorating wheels have still been turning!! Do they ever stop? Anyway, thats all for now.....Happy Junkin! Cathy

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

It has been so long since I have been on my blog I hope I remember how! As you know, I am recovering from my foot surgery and did not make it out to Canton last month....I am soooooooooo looking forward to being there this month though! I still have some bad days with the swelling and it is still hard to walk on it but I hope over the next 3 weeks it will continue to improve. I have been able to get in the pool a few times and enjoy just chilling on my float and my sweet grandson Kyan has been here for 10 days up until yesterday. I was sure glad that his daddy was here to help take care of him as he has started walking and is NEVER still!! He sure puts a smile on my face!! In fact, today is sooooo quiet with him not here! I can now start getting ready for mom will be making some new purses this month and I have some great old bottles that I will be "blinging". We will also have our usual shabby furniture and great, fun jewelry items! Well it is time to ice the old foot, so that is all for now...have a great day and "Happy Junkin"....Cathy

Tuesday, August 4, 2009

It was a very slow month at Canton, but we made it through the heat, the wind, lightning, thunder and the hard rains. We did prepare for the water and put sandbags at the front of our booth, but it did seem to make its way through them. We put our rain boots on and swept the water out as best as we could. Everything did survive and nothing was ruined. We heard that some booths were not as lucky, and were really flooded.

I must say that everyone that made it out to Canton this month are "Real Canton Shoppers". We had a great "buy one get one free" sale on some bobbles...hope that you got to take advantage of that.

It was a little different without Cathy being there. This was her first month to miss in almost 2 years. We missed "our fluffer". She is always busy, busy, busy fluffing, sweeping and picking up the booth to make sure it looks great for all of you that come to visit us. She said that she felt sad not being there with us...but she will be there for our September show.

We are already gearing up for September and we have some new designs in the works, plus we hope to have some Halloween for you. Some of you asked for that already.

Gotta Go for now!

Well Ladies....
I am back from my Destin vacation, and have been working since I got out of the car I think. Destin was beautiful as ever and none of us wanted to leave. The weather was just perfect and we did alot of fun things while we were there. Parasailed, went on a dolphin cruise, snorkeled, and some of us went deep sea fishing. Of course we laid out on the beach daily and just took in the sun and waves all day long. (Wish I was there now!)

We are gearing up for Canton. We leave tomorrow. Cathy will not be there this month, but I think she was going to blog some today, so I will let her update you on her condition.
I can honestly say that I will be running very low on inventory this month, but I know that Pam, Jeri and Sue have been working very hard while I played, so there should be plenty of great stuff! Please make sure that you come by to see us!

Hope to see you this week!

Happy Wed. thought I would update our blog and let all of our friends know that Deidra is enjoying her much needed vacation in Florida on the beach and I am still recooping from my foot surgery. I go back to the surgeon tomorrow and am suppose to get my stiches out. I hope that I can also start to drive and most of all get in the pool and hit the road looking for good junk....{ treasures }. I have not been down like this or have had to stay off my feet in at least 20yrs. and it has been a real challenge for me has I am the type that NEVER stops until I go to bed! I guess that good be called a little OCD! Anyway, I have had alot of time to get some r and r. I will be in a black, hip, styling boot for another few weeks......I am thinking how I can put the good ole "girls gone junkin' " touch to it!! I will post a pic after I get this design going! I will probably not make it out to Canton this month { have talked hubby in to going and help with the booth set up } but will be sending all my goods! If I don't see ya before, will see you in Sept. { can't wait for fall } Have a blessed day......Cathy

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Hey Everyone,

Just a quick note to let those of you wondering.....Cathy did great in surgery and is recovering well at her home. She says that she cannot believe the amount of sleep that she is getting. Went to see her yesterday and all is going well.

Pam and I survived the Peach Festival, but was a hot day. For those of you who braved the heat and came to see us...Thanks!

I am getting to take a vacation with the family to Destin. Cannot wait! This will be our third consecutive year, and I must say we are hooked. We just love it! I hope that the beach is as beautiful as usual, since the hurricane hit it last year.
Three days after I return from Destin will be Canton again. I guess I will have to "work a little" while on vacation in order to be caught up with merchandise. I also like to hit some of the thrift shops while I am there...sometimes I find some unusual cool things to bring back. If anyone knows of some places I should stop by while I am there, please let me know.

See you in a couple of weeks!


Wednesday, July 8, 2009

Well, we survived the high temperatures once again at Canton. It was a hot one I might say! Wednesday Pam got nauseous, then on Thursday I got nauseous, but then I think we all became use to the weather by Friday. Thanks to our regular customers who came to see us. We sure do appreciate you all!

Business was good despite the hot temperatures, and it seems that everyone went home a little early to get ready for the Fourth Fireworks. We did not stay for the fireworks show....we left early to get a bite to eat and then headed for the air conditioned cottage. (Real party people huh?) We did get to enjoy some great fireworks out in the country though.

We had our regular Friday haircut in Kaufman with our friend Amber. She is just really a sweet person, and just so fun to be around. We just love her and are so happy that we found her.

Cathy is having foot surgery this Thursday, so say a prayer that everything goes well and that she has a quick recovery. You may not see her at this next Canton.......but surely by the end of August, she should be back in the swing of things.

Pam and I are getting ready for the Weatherford Peach Festival this Saturday. If you are live close by and want to enjoy some great peach ice cream and do a little shopping, be sure to come by and see us. There are several vendors there and a fun time is sure to be had! Dress cool!
Gotta get back to Junkin'

Monday, June 29, 2009

Happy Monday! Do you ever wish that God would have made a day more then 24 hrs?? Today is one of those that I sure could use more hours!! Thought I would write a quick blog though as we leave for Canton Wed. Deidra and Pam have been busy, busy, and more busy with their jewelry and I have just been plain BUSY!! It started last grandbaby "Kyan" and mommy and daddy were here and left last Mon. { needless to say I was a tad bit tired } then my wonderful, loving Great Aunt Estelle died.....she would have been 97 on July 4th, so we went to East Tx. for her funeral. You know she was not famous like Michael Jackson or Farrah and not rich by no means, but she lived her life to the fullest and had soooooooo many interesting stories about her long life....I just loved to listen to her talk about her life....she will be so missed! After this, my son Dustin got sooooooo sick with strep and I really felt like he was a little boy again .....he is working here in the metroplex so stays with us during the week and then heads to Austin where Amanda and Kyan are. After this little "curve in the road" my hubby and I went to Austin and back Sat. for Kyans 1st birthday party. He had so much fun and we did to! I will post a pic later....maybe I can figure out how to do it before he turns 2...Ha! After all of this last week I now have today and tomorrow to finish or should I say start getting ready for Canton! We will have lots of cute stuff and hope to see ya'll there......if not, have a safe and fun 4th of July and don't forget to fly your flag....we are sooo blessed and lucky to have our freedom! Gotta Go....................Cathy " Girls Gone Junkin" right now I feel like Girls Gone Crazy!!

Saturday, June 20, 2009

OK.....I am going to try this again! It is 11 Sat. night and I am babysitting while baby Kyans dad and mom are out. He is fast asleep after a full day and my hubby known as "Poppy" is gone DJ ing a big wedding reception soooooooo I feel like I can get something done for a change!! Thank goodness for Deidra and her GOOD blogging skills as mine seem to be lacking!! Not only have we had some HOT weather.....I have been keeping the road HOT looking for some good junk { treasures } to bring out to Canton this comes the fun part, getting it all ready and packed up! Also, just want to let all of you know that we appreciate all of our customers and we always work hard to keep our prices affordable for all! Hope to see you in Canton this month......{ now lets see if this will post like it is suppose to } Have a good one......Cathy "Girls Gone Junkin"
LOL!!! Yes, Cathy is aware that she posted without words......we laughed about it last night. She did post a great blog yesterday, but somehow it is out in cyber-space and she cannot find it. Has anyone ever done that before? Just write something great down and then you hit the wrong button and it disappears? Oh well, she will get back on again soon. She has been busy with her cutie-patootie grandson(Kyan) this weekend. We both had some get togethers this week with past happy occasion and one sad occasion.
I lost a high school friend to Huntington's Disease. His name was Cary Ward. If any of you do not know about this disease...look it up on Google. It is a horrible neurological, hereditary disease that there is no cure for. Cary was funny, smart, witty, good-looking, a great athlete(played football for Baylor), and just a great all around person. Thank goodness he is no longer in pain. He suffered for quite a while. He will be dearly missed by all of his friends and family.

The happy occasion was a wedding reception. Cathy and I had a friend get married. Her name is Jaye. She is a hoot! We just love her. The reception was last night. It was great to see alot of old friends that Cathy and I use to work with. We miss all of them. Jayes' mom put Cathy and I up one night for Canton when we had no place to stay and did not feel like spending another night in the truck.

We have been working hard for Canton. We hope that everyone comes out and sees us. I know that it will be hot, but maybe there will be a breeze somewhere? We have some new stuff that we have been working on. Last month I made some special gifts for "my girls" at the booth and everyone asked about them. They were little bottles with glitter, pearls, rhinestones, and words put into the bottles with a small piece of lace around the top. I will have some of these at Canton. I am trying to have plenty for all, but come soon to get a good selection.

Cathy has been on the go since last Canton just shopping, shopping, shopping for good treasure finds. I think that she has about three or four totes full of "good junk stuff" that she has found to "bling" up for this month. I know that she sure has found me some good stuff to keep. I need to turn her into my personal shopper while I stay home and solder.

Better go for now, I need to get back to work. Hope to see everyone in a couple of weeks!

Hello everyone...I see that Cathy has updated the blog since we got back from Canton.......I guess I just needed one more day to recover this time. It was SO HOT! We all survived it and I am trying to psych myself up already for the month of July weather. Thanks to everyone who came out to see us despite the warm temperatures!
I missed our visit with Laurie Anna and Willie this month. I heard a good time was had! I came home on Saturday for my son Paynes' ROCK CONCERT at Keller Fest and was dripping in sweat. The name of his band is TIN. They did great and I am so proud of him! Well, better get to work for next month. I will check in later on in the week.

We are back from our Canton weekend and all I can say is "Summer is Here!" Despite the HOT temps. we had a good time! It is always sooooooo nice to have our regular customers come out and see us and we enjoy having new ones discover us! We had several customers from out of state.....a cute couple from New York, several from Oklahoma and Louisiana and also a fun friend of Glenda's from Pittsburgh PA. Glenda works at the Texas Best restaurant on the grounds in Canton and makes the BEST tasting strawberry cake I think I have ever tasted!! Be sure and try some the next time you are in Canton! Once again Pam, Deidra and I got our hair cut from our new friend and hair dresser "Crazy, fun, Amber in Kaufman. That is ALWAYS a fun time!! Suzie of Suzie Buttons Creations also paid us a visit this month and had her cute and precious little grandaughter with her......{ check out her blog when you can....} Well that is all the blog time I have for now......Deidra will be posting some new pics soon.....Have a good week and "Happy Junkin!" Cathy

Friday, May 22, 2009

Well here it is Friday ......once again I was up early, met up with Pam and we hit the road running or I should say "junkin"! We filled up her Suburban "Blackie" with all kinds of goodies! We told each other that we would be back at noon so we could get busy working on our projects for Canton next week! Welllllll, that did not happen as it was almost 4 when we called it a day! Once again, Deidra stayed home and was good as she wanted to work on her jewelry! We thought about her though! One of these Friday's I guess we will just have to kidnap her so she will have to go with us! I know one thing......I am TIRED! Guess I will hit the sack early with visions of all my projects I have to get done between now and Wed. when we leave! I hope you all enjoy your long Memorial Day weekend and make it out to Canton next week.....Cathy "Girls Gone Junkin"

Thursday, May 14, 2009

Oh my gosh.......I have been on the go "junkin" around town today with Pam and came home to check our blog and find out that Deidra was home today and used some of her time to "fluff" our blog up and give it a new fun and shabby new look!! I LOVE it and hope that ya'll will enjoy our new look as much! Happy Junkin...........Cathy

Friday, May 8, 2009

T.G.I.F! I love Friday because that is when I love to go "junkin"! I hit the floor running this morning and had a good treasure hunting day.....except for the heat! I sure hope that summer is not here early....I know that Deidra has updated our blog since Canton but she forgot to tell you about our little birds nest that we discovered in our booth! The nest was built at the front of our booth where the old tarp stays rolled up....just tucked away with 3 lil peeping babies! We took pictures and will try and post new pics this weekend! We had a great Canton weekend and made alot of memories thanks to Amber and the new look that she gave Deidra and Pam! They both have a new "sassy" look! Anyway, just wanted to check in and wish all of you a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! CATHY

Thursday, May 7, 2009

Luckily Cathy and I made it to Canton this month. We had a rough start within 5 minutes of pulling out of the driveway. After the first intersection, we lost out came unhitched and about scared us to death. I think Cathy pulled a muscle by flinching so much. We did manage to get the trailer out from under our bumper, hooked it back up and on to the show we went.
We made it through the rainy, windy weather this past weekend. Thanks to all of you who came out and survived it with us. It really wasn't that bad. The rain seemed to manage to do its' thing late at night and early morning with the exception of one drizzly day. We had a small windy gust(we heard that it was a small tornado) come through Canton on Saturday night. We drove back by our booth and the right side was a little torn up and stuff was on the ground, but everything was okay. The month of May was when the tornado hit last year. I guess we need to remember that for May 2010, as May seems to be tornado month in East Texas.
We want to give a big thanks to Amber who entertained us on Friday night and gave us some great "rocking haircuts". Thanks for staying open late for us....we look forward to the next one.

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Just a quick update as we leave for Canton tomorrow.......we will be bringing all of our usual jewelry and new initial charms.......Deidra has been working on some new "vintage" initials and I have some new ones as well! We will be bringing more of our shabby furniture as well as some new smalls. Don't forget to go "green" and pick up one of our shabby junkin' bags at only $13.00! Most of all, we will have lots to choose from for that "perfect" Mothers Day gift just around the corner on May 10th! Sooooo, grab the umbrella and come on out for a fun filled junkin weekend! Have a good day.........Cathy

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Thought we would update our blog and let all that follow us know what we have been up to!! Our trip to the Chapel Hill Bluebonnet show was a "WASH OUT"! We left Ft. Worth last Fri. morning for our "ya ya sisterhood" road trip and it poured on us all the way......when we arrived in Chapel Hill, the tents that were already set up were a little "deflated" from the storms so as we sat and watched the pouring rain and listened to the Sat. forecast. After finding out that our hotel reservation was short one bed and room, we turned our packed autos around for another 4 and 1/2 hour "ya ya sisterhood" road trip back to the Metroplex!! Even though it was the show that did not happen, I must say that we did enjoy our conversation and many good snacks along the way! This was just another adventure in the world of "Girls Gone Junkin"! We are now getting ready for Canton next week and will have lots of jewelry and treasures to fill our booth....Hope to see all of you there! { We will also be "going green" with more of our junkin bags } which reminds me........Happy Earth Day tomorrow! Cathy and Deidra
Well, I do not know how many of you made it to the Chapell Hill Bluebonnet Festival this past weekend, but Cathy, Pam and I were rained out. We showed up there Friday to set up and get ready for the show and WOW...what a thunderstorm! Tents were bent, broken and blown over so we got out of there. We talked it over and after hearing the weather reports for the entire weekend, we decided to just call it a loss and drove back home. We did hear that they opened the show on Sunday and there was a large crowd. If any of you went, let us know your thoughts about the show. We are getting ready for Canton this week. I will get back on the blog later and let you know all that we are bringing. Be sure and come and see us if you get a chance...for sure we will have lots and lots of goodies as always!

Just checking in to say what a great Canton weekend....except for the WIND!! It was good to see all of our regular customers as well as lots of new ones. Deidra and I appreciate all of you coming out to see us and supporting our "junkin" business and we hope all of you had a great weekend! We will be soooo glad when our Texas weather starts to act like it is really spring! After Easter we will be gearing up for the Bluebonnet festival in Chapel Hill....if any of you have a chance to come out, it is a wonderful quaint little town near Brenham Tx. { home of Bluebell ice cream...yum } and the bluebonnets should be in full bloom! Thats all for now......Happy Junkin....Cathy and Deidra

Hey Everyone!

Cathy and I have been busy getting ready for our Canton show. We have lots of furniture this month in creams, pinks and blacks. We have a couple of vanities, a small armoire, 2 desks, full size iron bed, a TV armoire, chest of drawers, shutters in pinks and creams, guitars, purses, some new Girls Gone Junkin' Go Green Bags and much much more! We will also have lots and lots of smalls that we have been "blinging" all month. We will have some new designs with our pendant jewelry too! We hope that you will come by and see us. See you next week.

I am soooo excited as Deidra and I can now both post on our "girls gone junkin" blog!! We are still "babies" in the world of blogging but will soon have the hang of it { I hope! } Anyway, it has been a very busy week.......Deidra has been busy remodeling her house and getting ready for our next Canton. Her house looks great........and I will make sure she takes pics when she is finished........are you ever finished with a remodel job??? I know that with me, one thing always leads to another! It is sooooo much fun though! I am loving this spring weather and hope that we will be blessed with the same in a couple of weeks when we head out for Canton! Cathy .......girls gone junkin!

Sorry that it has been a few days.....we have been busy, busy, busy! This blog thing is all new for us and we will have to get use to using it on a daily basis. Thanks to all of you who have visited our site and commented. We appreciate all of our "new blog" friends, and look forward to meeting you face to face. Be sure to come and introduce yourselves if you make it by our booth.
I did a little "junkin" this past weekend but did not find a whole lot, just some smalls that will be hard for me to let go of. Does anyone else have that trouble? It seems that sometimes my keep for myself stack is larger than my to sell stack.

Well...we finally did it. Yesterday, Cathy and I sat at the computer all day working on our website and blog. With help from Laurie, (Laurie Anna's Vintage Home) who worked so hard with us, we completed it today. Laurie, you are awesome and we appreciate all that you did for us!
We will try and keep you posted with all of the things we are currently working on for our shows. Please let us know if there are any certain pieces that you are looking for and we will try our best to find them for you when we are out junkin'.
