In the news.........

We are back from Hico, and had such a fun time seeing some of our "junkin" peeps! Denis from Ruby Grace's was set up right behind us, and next to him was Jennifer and Ronny from The Lone Star Antique Mall, where our Girls Gone Junkin business first started out! They have an awesome mall, and Jennifer has a "rockin" boutique at the back of the mall also! Maggie and Lilly from The Veranda in Canton were 2 of so many great vendors, and we were blessed with some great Texas Spring weather both days of the show! I also want to give a Big Shout Out to Mike and Brenda from The Homestead for hosting such a great show, and also "giving back" by charging $1.00 admission which went to the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.......a great cause indeed! THANK-YOU ALL who came out and shopped with us! Another exciting thing that happened in our little junkin world this week, is that we are in the June issue of Southern Living Magazine!!! Yep, we are listed as one of the top 5 places to shop in an article about Canton Trade Days. I am STILL SMILING after first reading the article on the magazine isle in the middle of Wallmart........LOL! I am sure if anyone saw me, they must of thought WOW, that lady sure likes that magazine! We will be heading to Canton in just a couple of weeks, and boy do I still have alot to do to get ready.....but first, I am heading to Austin next week with the hubby and while he is attending a work related conference, I will be loving on my sweet little grandson and getting some R an R by the pool! Life is GRAND, and we are sooooooo blessed to have such wonderful friends and customers who support our LOVE OF JUNK!
