About The Book
In their first book, the Junk Gypsies—sisters and stars of the popular Texas-born brand and HGTV show—combine big dreams, stories of roadside treasures found, and down-home design projects inspired by epic makeovers for friends like Miranda Lambert, Billie Joe Armstrong, and Sadie Robertson.
Amie and Jolie Sikes, the Thelma and Louise of the design world, are the Junk Gypsies: a family with an addiction to flea markets, wanderlust, and Americana inspired design. In their world, cowgirls are heroes, road trips last forever, and junk is treasured.
Beginning with a little bit of faith and a whole lot of heart and soul, the sisters travelled the back roads of America like gypsies, collecting roadside trinkets and tattered treasures while meeting kindred spirits and lively characters along the way. With a mix of hippie, rock n’ roll, southern charm, and big dreams, these small-town Texas girls became restless wanderers and owners and operators of their dream business and bohemian brand, Junk Gypsy.
Filled with stories from their unique journey as well as DIY projects and bohemian inspired designs, Junk Gypsy is a tribute to all the rowdy gypsies, crafty junkers, free-spirited romantics, and true-blue rebels who have ever dared to dream big.

Raves and Reviews
“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
