Under Pressure: See New Additions to the Junk Gypsy Store

junk-gypsies-amie-and-jolie-sikes

Amie and Jolie Sikes are ready to tackle the junk!

The Junk Gypsy store survived opening week, but not without a few scars. An almost empty store means business is booming, but it also means Amie and Jolie need to go junk hunting again. With only 24 hours to find new pieces, Gypsyfy the junk and redecorate the store, the Gypsies rely on the help of friends and family to get the job done. Archie Allen gave Great American Country a sneak peek yesterday of some “redneck engineering” happening in the Junk Gypsy store.

Finding junk and turning it into unique home decor is what the Junk Gypsies do best. In Thursday’s episode, Amie and Jolie transform a dilapidated dresser into a bathroom vanity, and old, wire lampshades become glittered-feather chandeliers. After a busy 24 hours, the Sikes family relaxes with a campfire under the Texas stars.

Tune in tonight at 9/8c on Great American Country to see if they can pull it off!

Miranda Lambert is giving fans the chance to hear her new album, Platinum, before it officially hits shelves on June 3. She will send her vintage 1954 Flying Cloud Airstream, which she has named “Wanda the Wanderer,” to seven cities on the Platinum Across America Tour. The Airstream will be topped by a 6-foot-wide, 3-foot-tall aluminum crown, adorned with crystals.

“Wanda is my grandma on my mom’s side, although we call her Nonny,” Miranda said. “She’s a feisty lady full of sass. Since she can’t travel with us everywhere, we decided to name our faithful Airstream road companion, ‘Wanda The Wanderer,’ after her. This Airstream has been with us on tours throughout the years and is now embarking on yet another adventure, Platinum Across America! She IS the ‘queen of the road,’ and I’m so happy to share her, in all of her glory, with fans across the nation. She is what Platinum is all about! Cheers, Wanda! And remember, not all who wander are lost!” Continue Reading
