Reflections on our year.......

Hope your stockings are hung by your chimney with care, the presents are wrapped, and the smell of Christmas baking fills the air.........Deidra did get tires back on their truck, and is out " POWER SHOPPING " as I type this post!!! I did finish my shopping, presents are wrapped, and the fun will begin Christmas Eve when our son and his family get here on Friday! Can't wait to spend Christmas Eve with our sweet lil grandson.....and mom and dad! LOL

I can't help but reflect on what a fun filled, good year we have had! We want to give a BIG SHOUT OUT, to our friends, family members, and most of all our wonderful customers and GGJ followers who support what we love to do! This past year, we moved to a bigger location, and it has been soooooooo nice to not have to set up and tear down each and every month......our customers followed us along our way, and we have met so many new ones too! We were chosen as one of the "top" shopping spots in Canton, along with four other great vendors, and we will all be in an article that features Canton shopping spots, in the June issue of Southern Living!!!!

That is an exciting thing for us two junkin girls from lil ole Keller Texas back in the day! LOL!!!!!!!!! I can't forget too, our story of how we started our business being featured as one of MANY in the book, A Cup Of Cappucino For The Entrepreneur's Spirit by Jeretta Nord.

Yes, there are days during the month that we are running around like two crazy people, trying to finish projects, paint furniture make jewelry etc. etc. and get it all ready for Canton, but in reflecting back on our year, we are truly BLESSED!!! We can't wait to see what our new year holds for The Girls Gone Junkin!!!!

Last, but not least I must give a big SHOUT OUT to Woody and Betty, for letting us stay with them as we were working on our new booth, Steve, Craig, and Brian for helping us with the labor it took to get the booth ready! We appreciate it soooooo much! And, without Sue, Jerrie, Pam and Brenda our booth would not be the same!




  1. Hi Ladies! So proud to hear yall have a new booth. Only problem is....I have no idea where you are now!! Haven't been to Canton in a while but I'm planning on making it this month. Yaaaay!! Soooooo excited!! So my question is, where can I find ya now?
