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.

In Goodbye, Things Sasaki modestly shares his personal minimalist experience, offering specific tips on the minimizing process and revealing how the new minimalist movement can not only transform your space but truly enrich your life.
