I t's time to let the cat out of the bag...I have been waiting to tell this for a while now, but had to make sure everything was a done deal. I have had a dream of always owning my own store, and the opportunity has come. I have left Girls Gone Junkin' and will be opening Ruby Ellen's in Hurst, Tx. (Details for location will come later as progress is made.) I am so excited, that I can hardly stand it! We picked the name because of our grandmothers. Their names were Ruby and Mary Ellen..and they were great friends while growing up. They would be so proud! Hopefully, if things go smoothly, we will be open in December. Cathy will still be Girls Gone Junkin', and still have the same AWESOME booth at Canton...make sure that is on your list to stop by when you are there, you won't be disappointed. I want to thank Cathy for all of the fun, wild, crazy and stressful times that we had....yes, we should have written a journal, because no one would believe the things we have been through and the stories we have to tell. I wish Cathy continued success and happiness, which I know she will do! I also wanted to thank Shelly.....your advice and info. were much needed! Thank you to all of my friends/customers who have supported me for the past 4 and a half years...I will miss each and every one of you, come see me if you are in the area. Last, but not least, thanks to my sisters for believing in me and having faith.....I love all three of you so much and I can't wait to get started on this new adventure. More updates to come! Keep on JUNKIN'! Deidra

It is another Beautiful fall day here in Texas.....Home of our great baseball team, Our Texas Rangers...I just felt the need to add that! LOL! Between watching the games all week, getting ready for Canton Weekend, and just stayin "a float" with all the other day things in a day, my "stress" level is a "tad" bit on the high side!!! But, I do find that sometimes that makes us work harder, faster and get alot more done.......that is why this post is going to be a little on the short side....not to say I just finished my Starbucks Latte with an extra shot!!! Woo fingers are going to town! LOL! F.Y.I. we are having a "Costume Contest" on our if you want to have a chance to win one of our favorite burlap junkin bags, just go to the Girls Gone Junkin FB and send us one of your favorite costume pics of when you were growing up....Or....if like me, you are STILL trying to get there...send us one of your Big Girl costumes!!!

Contest ends at the "stroke of midnight" tonight......Best Witches......Cathy@
