“JG & Shabby Chic are the original trailblazers of lovers of anything with ‘authentic soul.’ My soul sisters love bright red and turquoise while I love powder blue and pale pink. They love rockabilly and I love a sad country song. But in our hearts we are the same, we design from our dreams and always stay true to our visions. I couldn’t love these girls any more if they were my true sisters.” (Rachel Ashwell, creator of the Shabby Chic brand)
“Junk Gypsy is a lifestyle—totally Texas and totally fun.” —Lone Star Literary
About the Author
Born and raised in small-town Texas, Jolie and Amie Sikes graduated from Texas A&M University but soon after realized the nine-to-five life was not for them. With only two thousand dollars and an old pick-up truck, the Sikes sisters went on to launch the wildly successful Junk Gypsy brand and become the stars of two hit TV shows on HGTV and Great American Country. They have been featured in countless newspapers, magazines, and television shows, including The Today show, Country Living, People Country, Southern Living, The Houston Chronicle, Fortune Small Business and more. In addition to curating and designing everything from clothing to housewares for their flagship store in Round Top, TX (population: ninety) and online store, the sisters design a line for Pottery Barn Teen and have a line of Junk Gypsy paint and Lane Boots.
