Our Visit To Junk Gypsies


Hey Ya’ll,

I am a big fan of Amie and Jolie who at the time were on HGTV as The Junk Gypsies.

So my daughter April and I took a road trip to Round Top, Texas three years ago. I am holding my grandson Johnny and it was fun meeting Jolie and Archie at the store. It was market week so Amie was out of the store for the day. My daughter is known for making our road trips memorable so this time didn’t disappoint.
We were shopping at their Junk Gypsy Company Store when I rounded the corner to be face to face with Jolie who offered her assistance. April and I asked Jolie if she minded a photo with us. As you can see she was very nice and even Johnny smiled.
We ran into her again on the other side of her store as Archie one of their longtime employee friends was waiting on us. I saw they had these tiny dancing ballerinas online and had to have a couple of them. April and I picked up several items and before we left my sweet daughter gifted me a Junk Gypsy t-shirt which is still one of my treasures!

Next time I will have to get April in front of the camera!

Thank you again April for this special day,


I am in no way associated with Amye or Jolie Sykes or The Junk Gypsy Brand.





Vintage Find: Tony The TIger Mug

Hello everyone,
I am excited to show you my weekend thrifting find.
What past time makes you happy?
Give me a dusty overstocked thrift store and I am in heaven.

I did a little shopping today and found this cool mug in mint condition.
Fire King Anchor Hocking TONY the TIGER Coffee Cup just made me smile when I say it.
My guess is it is from the 70’s. I paid .99 for this fun nostalgia find.

My daughter April, and I plan to replace items in my kitchen with retro, vintage items.
So think this cute mug has found a home.
What have you found while out shopping that you couldn’t live without?
I also purchased a couple more picture frames to paint and ad to my collection of white frames.
My total bill was $3.16.
