Meet The Junkie Team!

Hey y'all!! We are so glad you're here & hope you have the best shopping experience! 
These are the faces "behind the scenes", who receive all your orders & package them with love! If you've shopped our storefront, you've also seen one or all of us behind the counter & working the floor, as we do it all! 
I am the blonde, Chelsey Barbe, and my husband Hunter and I own Junk in the Trunk! It has always been a passion of mine to open a boutique - but not just any boutique - one that only catered to plus size women such as myself. I can't tell you how many times I've cried in a dressing room or left a store so frustrated because nothing fit me - or the embarrassment of being greeted with "welcome! our plus size section is in that corner over there" - when I hadn't even asked about it...
not to mention being stuck in a corner or the very back of the store, with only 10 items at most to choose from. 
SOMETHING HAD TO GIVE!
SO, with the biggest support from Hunter, because honestly Im a chicken & he is my BIGGEST cheerleader and always in my corner rooting me on, I quit my full time job, he quit his too, (crazy I know LOL) and that's where Junk in the Trunk was born! 
From a 10x10 booth in a vendor mall in April 2016, to now a 4,000 sq ft building, HERE WE ARE! 
Thank you to the good Lord above!!

Jaycee McCaa: Manager 
(far right)
Where do I begin?! The first time I met this girl, she came hobbling into the boutique on crutches and a cast from a broken ankle, shopping with her mom & her sister. She instantly got my attention with her full of life attitude and spunk, and by the time she was done shopping and had checked out, asked if I was hiring. Fast forward 7 months later and she became our very first employee in May 2017. 
She is my right hand girl - what I forget, she remembers - she literally does it all, from shipping, to pricing, running the sales floor, running errands, handling my sometimes weird requests, dealing with unpleasant phone calls and the occasional unhappy customer - calming me down when I'm about to lose it with LIFE - I can call her in the middle of the night and she'd drive to wherever I was to help me. She is one of the hardest workers I've ever met and Im so glad to have her for over 2 years now! I love her millions!

Cassidy is one of the sweetest and most genuine people on this planet. She greets everyone with a smile and goes above and beyond to make sure everyone feels welcomed. Not only does she also work the floor, price, package, put together the cutest outfits & keep us rolling with her funny personality, she is also the first person we call if something technical goes wrong because I swear she can fix it all in 10 minutes or less. She is BOMB with makeup and doesn't give herself near the credit of just how amazing she is. She keeps me grounded and is the best listener - we have some of the best heart to hearts and I love her dearly! 
Im so glad she walked through our doors in April 2018 and applied for a job because we'd be lost without her!
how blessed am I that both of these girls are SO much more to me than just employees - we've laughed, cried, fought, given each other painful yet honest advice, laughed until our stomachs hurt, & just been happy to enjoy each others company. They love this boutique & customers just like it was their very own, which just makes me love them that much more <3
