Candid Keepers {#327}

There’s a common thread woven very tightly throughout the women of Matilda Jane.  Whether an employee of 435, a Trunk Keeper, a Jane or a customer, there is a passion that runs deep. Some might think it silly that a girls clothing company could stir up so much emotion for so many, but what could be silly about determined and spirited women paving the way for our next generation of girls.  This thread symbolizes character, selflessness, inner beauty, pride and loyalty.  I’m tellin’ ya, I love these girls.

 Amanda Henry is our Trunk Keeper of the week and after a lively skype session, I could tell she was a “keeper.”  The kind you don’t let go of.

Q:  We’ll go ahead and start this off with some basics about you.

A:  Alright, my name is Amanda Henry and I’m in Frisco, TX.  My husband is Kyle.  I have a son, Grey, who is 5.  He’s supposed to be taking a nap right now, but I can definitely hear him.  Plus I have a daughter who is 2 ½ going on 21.  Her name is Wren, like the bird and she’s super petite so she fits it perfectly.

 Q:  So, how long have you been married?

A:  We’ve been married 8 years as of last week.

Q:  Tell me a little bit about your family.

A:  My daughter is a lot like her dad.  She’s a little ornery.  Like today she was up in my room for a total of 2 minutes and when I walked in, she was only in her diaper covered with waterproof mascara!!  She’s busy!

My son is a redhead, and he’s a little bit feisty.  But he’s also such a sweetheart.  He gets that from me.  {laughing}

Q:  Seeing that Amanda didn’t have red hair I asked, “where does he get his red hair?”

A:  He gets it from my Great Grandpa.   So when he was born with red hair my husband looked at me like I had some explainin’ to do.  I love his red hair, but I might be a little biased.  {laughing}

*Let it be known that I LOVE red hair!!  It’s so unique and absolutely adorable.  I have always wanted a red head.

Q:  How did you meet your husband?

A:  I met him through a mutual friend and then we were friends for 2 years before we ever started dating.   I think it kind of grossed out our friends when we did finally go out on a date.  After that date we knew within a couple of weeks we were going to get married, which our friends also thought was weird.  Most likely because we used to fight and bicker with each other all the time.  They just couldn’t really understand it.  {laughing}

Q:  What would you say is his best quality?

A:  He has a lot.  Well, he’s just so funny.  He keeps me laughing all the time.  That’s definitely his way of getting out of things. {laughing}  He’s just very kind hearted to everybody.  I love that about him.

Q:  What would he say is yours?

A:  Probably my cupcakes.  {laughing}  No really, I’m a pretty sensitive person and I think he would appreciate that about me.

Q:  What would he say is something about you that just drives him crazy?

A:  Oh there are so many!!  It would probably have to do with being on the phone, facebook, words with friends, and now it’s Family Feud.  {Lots of laughing}  He’s tried to ban the phone from the bedroom.

Q:  So, tell me how you became a Trunk Keeper for Matilda Jane.

A:  Oh, I’m so excited!!  I’ve hosted several shows and just fell in love with the clothes.  I’m so glad I had a little girl!!  I had asked Tifani, my trunk keeper about it several months back and she explained the process to me.  Lucky for me they were opening up a couple of spots and it was official in a few days time.  It’s amazing how wonderful everyone is and just how helpful they are.

Q:  What do you look forward to most about working with MJ?

A:  Probably just sharing it with my friends and new people who have never hosted a show before.  Serendipity is my favorite line yet and I’m thrilled to share the excitement of it.

Q:  What is your all time favorite piece of Matilda Jane clothing?

A:  It’s probably the first thing I ever bought for my daughter from the Hammond Bay collection.  It was the Skye Knot top.    She’s been wearing it for what seems like forever and think it’s finally on it’s way out.

Q:  Tell me who has been your greatest influence.

A:  Probably my grandfather.  He passed away about a year and a half ago.  He was a Baptist minister in Shreveport, LA for 51 years at the same church.  He left a huge legacy behind him.  I just love hearing stories about him and everything he had done.  I was his first grandchild and we were really, really close.

Q:  Who or what inspires you in your daily life the most?

A:  Oh my kiddos.  Is that cheesy???  I just recently have started staying home with them and it was a big moment for all of us.

Q:  Do you enjoy being able to stay home with them now?

A: Definitely.  I mean some days you want to run kicking and screaming, but yes I do love it.  {laughing}

Q:  Okay, so my questions are going to be a bit more light hearted now.  If you were stranded on an island what three things would you take with you?

A:  Probably Oreos.  Well, and then I’d have to take Milk if I took Oreos.  Then I guess I’d go ahead and take Kyle.  {laughing}  Geesh, now I’ve used up all three and I can’t even take my kids.  I guess they’d have to stay with Grandma.  They’d eat all the Oreos anyways!!  {laughing}

Q:  What are your favorite TV shows?

A:  Oh no, this is kind of embarrassing because I have a lot.  How about top 2?  I love the Biggest Loser and Parks and Rec.  But I love the transformations the contestants go through on the Biggest Loser.  It’s amazing to watch such a huge change in such a short amount of time.  It’s pretty inspiring, granted I’m usually eating a cupcake while I’m watching it.

Q:  Favorite all time food.

A:  I’m a total foodie and I’m southern, so there are lots to choose from.  Probably cornbread.

Q:  What is the one item you would wear everyday if you could?

A:  I’d have to say the MJ Big Ruffles.  I just love those things.  They were the first item I ever bought for me.

Q:  If you were given $1 million to gift to the charity of your choice, what would it be and why?

A:  I would definitely give back to our church.  But I would also like to give to the mission field.  We work with a mission through our church that deals with orphans in Zambia.  I have a good friend who has big heart for adoption and she used to work there.  I learned a lot about that through her.  It’s called Every Orphans Hope and it’s just an amazing organization.

Q:  What is the one quality you want your children to remember about you?

A:  Just to be kind to others.  I don’t know but I think just to have a good heart, be kind and share with others.  Give of their time and serve.

Q: How do you go about instilling this?

A:  Well, we do Bible drills.  No, no, no {lots and of laughing} I’m just kidding.  We try to surround ourselves with positive people and experiences and we try to show them how important it is to give to others.  We certainly have our days where we fall behind, but we do our best.

Q:  What is your favorite past time to do with your kids?

A:  We love to just play outside.  We have amazing neighbors and the weather has been awesome, so we’re taking advantage of that.

Amanda Henry, thank you for your time and all the laughs.  I have a feeling Serendipity will be very good to you!

♥In honor of all the love floating around this week, I’d like you to share who your Trunk Keeper is and what makes them so special!  We’ll pick one lucky lady who will win my 2 favorite outfits.  GO!!♥




Tricia - February 21, 2012 - 8:41 am

My TK is Casey Mussell and she has got to be one of the SWEETEST people I have ever met. She has a way about her that makes you feel like you’ve known her for years and she’s just so real. You have a winner there. 🙂

Steph S - February 20, 2012 - 1:53 pm

Natalie Kukla. She is so stylish, so kind but what I respect most is her honesty. She represents what all ladies should be…kind, patient, sincere, stylish, honest and a good friend. (Thanks for the opportunity to say thanks to her for all these qualities publicly.)

Chrissy - February 20, 2012 - 1:49 pm

My trunk keeper is Jennifer Fox in Lenoir NC. I was just introduced to MJC last summer and I fell in love with it! Jennifer is wonderful and keeps me excited about MJ! She is always keeping me informed about what is going on! It’s funny, I don’t have children, so I mostly buy for me, but I have a new niece and her closet is starting to become filled with MJ pieces thanks to her Aunt Chrissy! Thanks Jennifer and thanks Matilda Jane!

tammy - February 20, 2012 - 12:28 pm

my TK is Jennyb from the ATL! I lover her! We met thru MJC…but she is much more than a TK! She is a friend… and I have so enjoyed getting to know her. She plays by the rules, she is fair and goes above and beyond!

Jenny Reilly - February 20, 2012 - 11:42 am

Heather Becker is the trunk keeper I worked with on the latest release. I admire her for working with my close friend to provide a fundraiser for the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance. Heather agreed to donate 10% of ‘her’ proceeds to donate to this cause in honor of Caleb. Not only has she now agreed to do that but increase her amount to almost all of her profits from this show. It was the trunk keeper donating a portion of her profits!!! This particular fundraiser was straight from the trunk keeper’s pockets to the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance… what a wonderful gesture!!

Paula Webb - February 20, 2012 - 9:55 am

My TK is Jennifer Fox…of Lenoir, NC. Jennifer is a real sweetie who I admire… She takes on the huge role of homeschooling her kids which I ADMIRE alot! She loves her kids and family…you can tell 🙂 She is sooo wonderful about getting the latest MJ info out to everyone.

Jennifer Taylor - February 20, 2012 - 8:05 am

My tk is Brea Freeman from Hendersonville TN… I am sure all of your tk’s are special in there own way.. Brea in my mind is one of the best… She goes above and beyond and just loves to spread the love of matilda jane.. At her home parties she is not pushy about buying the clothes (unlike another tk’s party I have been too) she just wants you to love them no matter how much you spend… It’s not about the money it’s about seeing how unique your child looks in it.. Overall she is just an amazing person to work with and she always makes time for each one of her customers… I LOVE YOU BREA FREEMAN…. THANKS FOR INTRODUCING ME TO THE LOVE OF MATILDA JANE!!!

Kaatje Pitzer - February 20, 2012 - 6:40 am

I know I’m late (sick kids) but had to share the love of my trunk keeper on the week of love! My fave trunk keeper is Brea Freeman! She is absolutely perfect representative of your company. If I had a company I would so pick her! She loves everything about it and it shows through her work ethic and passion. She goes way out of her way for her customers! I’m not easy with three girls to dress and being very indecisive but she is always so nice and works with me happily through all my mind changes! Love her! Thanks for hiring beautiful women to share your love of our children with us!

Melissa T. - February 20, 2012 - 6:39 am

My Trunk Keeper is Shelby Schilling in CO and she is the sweetest! I love her!

Sarah Smolen - February 19, 2012 - 10:10 pm

My TK is Nicole Korensky. After my former TK was promoted, I found Nicole and it’s a match made in heaven. I felt like we bonded after my first Trunk Show with her, she was here late because we had a major storm. Anyway, one thing that I love about Nicole is she is super quick to respond to any questions that I have. That really means a lot to me. 🙂

April Ammons - February 19, 2012 - 8:30 pm

Angie McGlaughlin is the best!!!! She loves MJC -she’s such a great rep – wearing the clothing everywhere! Her daughter would be a perfect model for the girls line- such a beautiful free spirit!!! Love love love her!!!

Kate - February 19, 2012 - 8:21 pm

Natalie Kukla is the sweetest most genuine girl I know. She is such a perfect fit for Matilda Jane. She represents the line so well with her grace and her style.

Emily G - February 19, 2012 - 7:48 pm

My trunk keeper is Jennifer Fox! LOVED getting to know her a bit these past few months~ along with being a new trunk keeper in the fall, she also took a leap of faith and decided to home-school her kids! She is truly a SWEET person that loves MJC, but loves her family more! I like that about her! Looking forward to spending some time with her on March 1st!!!! 🙂

Angie McLaughlin, Trunk Keeper 338, Wesley Chapel, Florida! She may be a new trunk keeper, but Angie has been promoting Matilda Jane for years! She introduced me to the line and I fell in love! Angie is full of positive energy and her excitement is contagious! She is always wearing MJC and dressing her daughter in beautiful MJC outfits, and it would be impossible not to notice this beautiful, fun line of clothing and the wonderful people who wear it!

love her.

Corey Pickens - February 17, 2012 - 2:19 pm

CHRISSY LIBERATI from Pittsburgh, PA!!! Ive never signed up to do anything with it being through somebody that i already knew so i was nervous to host a trunk show with a complete stranger. But when i talked to her for almost an hour on the phone for our initial phone call, i knew i was onto something good!!! I stood by my door for 15 minutes and ran out to greet my new friend with a hug when she arrived! But, what makes her even better would have to be the fact that the love didnt stop when the trunkshow was over!!! We still keep in touch! So that just means she loves me back!!

Jenny Bryan - February 17, 2012 - 2:08 pm

April Blair is not only incredibly patient, organized and enthusiastic about her job – but she’s a great friend! LOVE HER!! 🙂

She is just the sweetest and she really will go above and beyond to do whatever she can to help you! I have honestly never met a lady so giving and kind hearted in my life. Matilda Jane really knew what they were doing when they hired her, made my love for Matilda Jane grow even more!!

Maryann E. - February 17, 2012 - 1:12 pm

I have a brand new trunk keeper and even though I have not yet met her in person, I feel like we have known each other for years! Chrissy Liberati from Pittsburgh has reached out to me immediately after I contacted MJ for a trunk keeper. She has made a wonderful impression and I can’t wait to place my first order with her!

Hesper - February 17, 2012 - 12:21 pm

I love my TK!! Ms. April Blair in Knoxville, TN may very well be the only woman on the planet capable of tending to my craziness! With 3 daughters (5 and under) my schedule is hectic, my to-do list is never ending, and my brain rarely functions properly. She’s always smiling, always patient, and always around to help me with anything I need. I love me some April!! Hehe. <3

Tracy D - February 17, 2012 - 12:12 pm

My Trunk Keeper is Robyn Shirley and she rocks because she not only is excited about Matilda Jane, but also about her clients.

Erin Sumners - February 17, 2012 - 11:22 am

NICOLE MEYERS!!! I met her at Art Fair last year…she was just “one of us” at the time and since has become a Trunk Keeper. She is super sweet & hard working. I love how we became friends prior to her Trunk Keeper’ing and now she can help me with all of my questions & shopping :0)

Erin Clanton - February 17, 2012 - 10:45 am

JANE BLACKMAN is wonderful. She’s spunky and fun and having her as a guest in my house is like having a best friend over. Plus, the woman drives 3+ hours for our parties. MJC, Ms. Jane is one dedicated TK! Love her.

Kari Bennett - February 17, 2012 - 9:58 am

My TK is Sara Spitler. I have said it before, but she is so kind. I had sent her an email that I was stressed I didn’t get the aquamarine ruffles in my size and she felt so badly. Then I had to tell her that I was “clothes stressed” not, “Oh my goodness the world is ending stressed”. She worked her butt off to find me a pair. I know it isn’t much, but it is the little things that make her awesome. Plus we are almost 2 hours away, but I can’t give her up!!! <3

Delicia - February 17, 2012 - 9:47 am

My tk is Charinya Harding (Ca), she is very down to earth and always calm even during sellouts!!

Dayle Carozza - February 17, 2012 - 8:37 am

Oh how I love Amanda Jo! What a great feature story on an amazing lady. She is from my hometown and I just love her to death. We have always enjoyed talking about our MJ purchases and getting excited about hosting our parties. I was so excited when she told me she was going to be a trunk keeper. i mean…she couldn’t be more perfect for the job!

Now personal TK is Jan Collins. I love her too…man you guys can pick them! I have really gotten to know Jan over the past couple of years and love getting to know her. She just fits perfectly into my group of friends so we really enjoy every trunk show.


Terra Schultheis - February 17, 2012 - 8:31 am

I think we all believe we have the best TK, but l really do! Ha! Heather Stauffer is one amazing girl inside and out!! She is always so patient when I ask her a million questions about sizing, shows, and sell outs. 😉 She has helped me branch out from my beginning MJ days of being matchy matchy to some super fun combos!! I blame her for my addiction and my daughter’s beautiful wardrobe! I am honored to call her more than my trunk keeper, she has become a dear friend!!

Barbara Salvagni - February 17, 2012 - 8:05 am

Emily C!
She rocks and is such a night owl…we have a great time catching sold out items and closing out shows in the middle of the night!

Shane - February 17, 2012 - 7:48 am

My TK is Marcia Carroll- she rocks! Why?!?
We just had my show, and she went above and beyond helping each one of my friends with their orders and made time for each and every one of them. None of my friends had ever heard of MJ till my show, and the help and time she gave to each of them was amazing.

BUT, not only is she an amzing TK, she is an amazing mom and wife. She was telling me about her family- and she is able to stay at home with her kids (whom I have met and they are so sweet and polite and HAPPY!) and she also takes care of her husbands grandfather during the day!!! That is one special woman! Seriously. She has a heart of gold.

Ok, maybe that was more than two things!! But picking two is impossible!

Ashley H - February 17, 2012 - 7:38 am

Jane Blackman is DEFINITELY THE BEST. Jane is so fun, with an eclectic sense of humor. My girls are excited for a week when they know Jane will be paying a visit to our home. Jane is down to earth and so amazingly helpful. She definitely goes out of her way to accommodate her customers, she drives 2 hours to host a trunk show at my home.

Jeannine Whitacre - February 17, 2012 - 7:32 am

Kristine Hubbard…three words-Size Two Aquamarines! Yep this amazingly sweet sweet lady tracked down a pair and contacted me out of the blue because she knew I had been looking…AND I think she was almost excited as me to have found them for me!! Love her! 🙂

Sara Quinn - February 17, 2012 - 7:23 am

Tracy Morrison from St. Paul, MN. She seems to get it! The girl behind the clothes is what matters most to us moms and that’s what makes these adorable clothes all the cuter!

Courtney Puhl - February 17, 2012 - 6:48 am

HI! My wonderful, amazing trunk keeper is Shana Eppinger! Like so many of the fantastic TK’s out there, so goes above and beyond for not only her Jane’s but for all of her customers. She manages to find that pieces that makes your day! But the truly special thing about Shana is how she makes everyone feel comfortable, like she’s been a friend forever. From the first time I walked into her home, I felt completely at ease with her…like we could chat about anything. You really have someone special in Zelienople, PA!

Janelle Howe - February 17, 2012 - 6:22 am

My Trunk Keeper is Nicole Mayfield. The first time I met her, she acted like she had known me forever. She made me feel super comfortable and she is easy to talk to. She always talks me into trying things on that I would never pick for myself and I always end up loving the things she suggests. She must see something that I don’t!
She loves the food I make for my parties and It makes me feel so good when someone else loves the food I make! And, I just learned she used to cheer for Notre Dame…my husband’s favorite college team! One more reason my husband is coming around to Matilda Jane!

Traci S - February 17, 2012 - 6:20 am

My Trunk Keeper Christy Bazan in Bloomington, IL is the best! I have a crazy work schedule and am texting or emailing her all my questions. She always provides quick answers, welcomes me into her home at off hours to take a peek at the clothes, and has helped to spread the love to my friends and family when I host a show. I appreciate all she does, knowing she has big following here in Central Illinois. Go Christy!

Arianne Johnson - February 17, 2012 - 5:42 am

I have to say that I love my amazing trunk keeper Julie Degraff. She is so cute and so fun. She will go completely out of her way for you (and even send her husband if she can’t be there). She will search to the ends of the earth to the find that exact MJ piece that you are looking for. She is a good secret keeper too especially when my husband calls her to suprise me with some MJ pieces for mothers day last year. She is beautiful and has a fun bubbly spirit about her. It feels like we have known each other forever, just because of Matilda Jane.

Megan - February 17, 2012 - 5:04 am

Emily Koschnik is my amazing Trunk Keeper. I’d have to say her warm, bubbly personality is what makes her so special. She is always so happy and has a smile on her face. I love that quality in a person!

Summer Jesse - February 17, 2012 - 12:27 am

My oldest son also has Red hair and when he was born I got lots of looks but he also gets it from his great grandpa(Big Red), who passed away just a year before my son was born.

Sam D. - February 16, 2012 - 11:06 pm

Julie DeGraff (Lexington, KY)! She is – in one word – AMAZING! She is so bubbly and upbeat, and she always makes sure everyone has a great Matilda Jane experience! She works so hard to make her customers happy – whether it’s by finding an item that was thought to be sold out, or by opening her home at a moment’s notice (so that someone can look at the clothing). What a great lady you have representing your company!

Jennifer H - February 16, 2012 - 10:07 pm

My trunkkeeper is Jane Blackman and she is never pushy or rude and in fact just wants to share the cuteness of MJ to all! I appreciate how she keeps me up to date with release information and is so sweet!

Maranda B - February 16, 2012 - 9:42 pm

My TK, Christy Bazan is fab! She deals with my hundreds of questions that accompany each release with a smile. She never makes me feel like my questions are dumb – even though I know some of them are. She makes me feel welcome in her home and is super sweet.

Kristi Green - February 16, 2012 - 9:32 pm

My Trunk Keeper is Tracy Morrison! She is SWEET, FUNNY, fashonable, energetic and CREATIVE. I have had the chance to work with Tracy over the past 3 years through multiple MJ Trunk Shows both at my house and friends’ houses. She always is the perfect host at her own shows with child friendly, colorful AND CUTE treats. Every detail is thought of with her shows. Tracy is a true person who isn’t afraid to speak her mind. Have you ever read her blog? It is hysterical because it is REAL. Being a mother of three myself I LOVE that I can laugh with Tracy, who also has three young children. I love that when I was BURSTING pregnant, Tracy was still able to recommend some CUTE and COMFY clothing for me to buy from an MJ Trunk Show that I ended up loving (and still LOVE)!!. She wasn’t just trying to make a sale, she was giving me her real opinion and I love people that are true to themselves and others. Thank you TRACY!!! 🙂

Dawn Hudson - February 16, 2012 - 9:15 pm

I have never been to a show or even been through a release so I was completely clueless. Shannon Matz helped out with all my ordering. She stayed up late and answered all my MANY questions since I am in Japan and we are on different time zones.

I had a wonderful first experience in working with her.

Jennifer - February 16, 2012 - 9:10 pm

OK… So sorry. Apparently autocorrect on my phone decided to change my TK’s name on my previous post! I love my TK, Lori GAMMON (not Gannon)!!!!

Lynn Brady - February 16, 2012 - 9:05 pm

My Trunk Keeper is Angie Huff. She is wonderful!! Angie is always very quick to answer emails & phone calls. I haven’t known Angie that long, but she is a very sweet and kind person. Thank you for doing such a great job at selecting the perfect Trunk Keepers!!

Kim Eubanks - February 16, 2012 - 9:03 pm

My fabulous tk is Melodie Smith! She has always been so kind and helpful and works hard to get all the pieces you want! She always has great suggestions for matching outfits and sizing! Can’t wait to see her March 3rd for my show!

Angela - February 16, 2012 - 9:02 pm

I have 2 awesome TK’s- my first TK is Catherine Martin- who has always helped me get the pieces I need and is super fabulous! And my second TK,iNicole Myers, who is in her first season and is doing an awesome job I love these ladies!!!

Jennifer - February 16, 2012 - 8:55 pm

My TK is Lori Gannon and I’m so happy to have met her through Matilda Jane! She is super sweet and patient! This is my first season ordering and she has made everything so fun and easy! She goes above and beyond (She even went completely out of her way to bring me my Serendipity order when I was out to eat for Valentine’s Day!)! LOVE her!

Kara P - February 16, 2012 - 8:51 pm

April Blair (Knoxville, TN) not only travels 2 hours to do my shows, but she will stay however long she needs to help me decide on my order! She has taught me everything I need to know about MJC from which size to buy to what matches each piece. She is truly a special TK with a great heart. I know I can always count on her and can reach her (with my millions of questions) ANY time of day! She is an AWESOME TK!

Beth Daniels - February 16, 2012 - 8:49 pm

My super fab TK is Brandi Koerth from Engleside,Tx! Although we have been texting and chatting away for over a year…we’ve never met in person! She is always beyond great and I couldnt imagine a better or sweeter person to help me…thanks Brandi!!!

Kara P - February 16, 2012 - 8:48 pm

April Blair from Knoxville, TN is THE BEST TK I could ever ask for! When I first discovered MJC I knew nothing about it and she has taught me so much like which size to get my daughter (and myself) to the crazy world of matching each piece. She has became such a great friend and is so special to me. I can’t believe she will do a show at my house and be there till almost 10 and then have to travel 2 hours back home! She is so dedicated to what she does and I can ALWAYS count on her ANY time of day 🙂

Rebekah Mitchell - February 16, 2012 - 8:48 pm

Melodie Smith is my trunk keeper. I was not able to be at a trunk show for the release of serendipity( the adult line). So while at a trunk show she teamed with my best friend who modeled the clothes and texted me pics to help me choose:) Love the adult line Btw!

Rajitha - February 16, 2012 - 8:41 pm

Brandi in ingleside Texas..she always keeps me in the loop!:) very sweet and never pressures you but gets you excited! Will be doing my first show in march so excited!!

Katie holder - February 16, 2012 - 8:20 pm

Emily Carwile- Cookeville Tn!! Amazingly sweet and adorable!! Not pushy but know her stuff and her customers style!! Gets my stuff to me ASAP!! Evn if I’m in a pinch! Gotta love that! She is the best!!

Liz Miller - February 16, 2012 - 7:51 pm

My TK is Angela Applegate…she is awesome because she is kind and attentive but also is so good about helping me make decisions (which is a hard one for me:)) and even when I am taking forever…she just smiles!

Michelle Silvera - February 16, 2012 - 7:49 pm

My fantastic trunk keeper is Jane Blackman. After going to a couple parties/premieres we realized we knew each other from somewhere! Come to figure out we went to the same child care provider when we were little! What a small world! She is a wonderful woman and makes every party I have had so very memorable!

Gran - February 16, 2012 - 7:48 pm

Sara Spitler is fantastic. She is my friend though we have never met in person. She has helped me through several seasons now and is always willing to talk me through sizing and any other questions that I have. It is a joy to me to learn about her children and get to see pictures of them. I know that she is a very busy woman and I appreciate her so much. AND, I’ll always love her name… most recent Matilda Jane girl, Sara, is now 10 month old and wearing her first Matilda Jane clothes!!! Thank you Sara Spitler!

Bekkibowman - February 16, 2012 - 7:46 pm

After spending many seasons as a TK myself I got the chance to meet so many amazing (this word does not even describe!) women. I cannot even tell you how lucky you are to have Sara Spitler. If ever there was a poster child for how a trunk keeper should conduct themselves it is this girl. Not only was she incredible as a team member and support system as a fellow TK but now that the shoe is on the other foot and I’m a TK turned customer she is everything anyone would want. Gracious, dependable, and works her tail off and the best part is she loves Matilda Jane as much as I do so she does her job effortlessly. I love you so much Spitlah!!!

Heather D. - February 16, 2012 - 7:44 pm

My TK is April Blair in Knoxville, TN. She’s wonderful!!! She is kind, knowledgeable, friendly, approachable, and funny. I can’t say enough about her great sense of humor. 🙂 She’s the kind of gal you want to hang out with on a lazy afternoon! Her love of Matilda Jane is contagious–in a good way. 🙂 She always knows her product and will help you out with quetions big and small. If April didn’t already have a trunk, I’d say she should win this contest!

Gran - February 16, 2012 - 7:42 pm

Sara Spitler is fantastic. I have never met her in person but she is such a special person and I so enjoy seeing pictures of her children and our email and telephone conversations. She is very busy but she has helped me through ordering for several seasons…..I always have questions about the sizing and sometimes about color and style. Thank you Sara for all you do. We love your name too………our 10 month old granddaugher is Sara and this Gran dressed her today in her very first MJ knot dress!!

Mimi - February 16, 2012 - 7:38 pm

My Fantastic adorable fabulous amazing TK is brand new (although you’d never know it) bc she’s followed Matilda Jane since the very beginning! I adore her!!!! Mrs. Laura Pahmiyer!!!!!!! She loves MJ and loves her Janes!!! She is extremely helpful! Has the cutest set up ever and loves working for Matilda Jane! Wow! I just can’t say enough about how super she is!!!!

Emily H - February 16, 2012 - 7:31 pm

Kathleen Smith… Always works so hard at getting my “must haves”, easy going, and even helped me get through my baby girls first injury, a mom inflicted one (I was holding sweet C while playing fetch with our dog [entertaining a customer’s child in my backyard during my first mj show] and hit her in the head with a stick, more like a small log. Ahhhhhhh! Kathleen is great! Glad she got me through hat mom moment;) great asset for mj.

Leigh Ann - February 16, 2012 - 7:21 pm

Julie DeGraff is my trunk keeper. She has so many wonderful qualities. What impresses me most is how she supports and encourages those around her including other trunk keepers. She has such a generous spirit with her customers, co-workers, family and friends. Not to mention, she puts up with me!

Jamie Mullins - February 16, 2012 - 7:13 pm

My Trunk Keeper is Laura Pahmiyer and she has been one of my dearest friends for almost 20 years! She is so giving, caring, authentic and beautiful inside and out! She’s an AMAZING trunk keeper because she’s so in tune to the needs of others and pays attention to every detail! Matilda Jane is lucky to have such an incredible talent! Thankful that I get to host trunk shows for her!

Jennifer - February 16, 2012 - 7:10 pm

My TK is Chantel Russell – love her and her coolness under pressure, nothing seems to ruffle her feathers!

Natalie S - February 16, 2012 - 7:04 pm

My TK is ASHLEE JOHANSEN (Oh, that sounds different. It’s the first time I wrote her name since she got married) Anyway…Ashlee is amazing because she totally gets my MJ obsession. She puts up with my indecisivness, and always has the perfect advice on what to get when I just can’t decide. She always answers my texts and emails instantly and I know I can always count on her to snag that item that just popped up for a split second 🙂 Ash cares about her customers and their little ones that shine when they wear Matilda Jane. I felt so special when I got the invitation to her wedding. Just another way of letting me know that she considers her customers her friends. That’s what she is to me…my Trunk Keeper, my FRIEND.

Lori Walter - February 16, 2012 - 7:02 pm

I loooooove my TK, Alise Peters! She is the sweetest person and so great to work with. She has been tirelessly helping me for a couple of years now and I can always count on her to answer any question I might have…….even on opening day!!! She is truly an asset to Matilda Jane!

Jennifer Raymond - February 16, 2012 - 6:36 pm

Lisa Paul is the most awesome TK ever! I live in Indiana and she is in Texas but I don’t care because she is awesome! She is also a sweetheart! I finally got to meet her in person at last years Art Fair pre-party! She is just awesome!!

Sara Kim - February 16, 2012 - 6:12 pm

My trunk keeper is Nicole Korensky in Aurora, Illinois. I found MJ online and I didn’t understand why I couldn’t just order from the computer. However, I felt it was so cute it was worth going to a stranger’s home to check it out. When I met Nicole, she immediately made me feel comfortable even though it wasn’t even her home. I have enjoyed every visit with her and she has provided excellent customer service. She has a warm smile and is an outstanding trunk keeper!

Grace Evelyns Mom - February 16, 2012 - 5:38 pm

Jennifer Fox in North Carolina!!! She is awesome because she is so kind, easy to have in your home and always looking out for you! She remebers what you want and keeps an eye on the inventory to warn you if it is getting low before your show! What more could anyone ask for in a MJ trunk keeper??? Love her!!

ana - February 16, 2012 - 5:34 pm

Lauren Nienhuis, TK id #170
Trunk Keeper, Holland, Michigan
she is the best, she made me feel so comfortable and easy to talk to and helped my show out. I love this lady and she works hard.

Kristi Scheidegger - February 16, 2012 - 5:17 pm

My Trunk Keeper is Lauren Murchison and what makes her AMAZING is her ability to juggle her mom life and professional life with such grace. I have the utmost admiration for her!!

jennifer - February 16, 2012 - 5:14 pm

My favorite trunk keeper is Jennifer Freeland! She is new with the Serendipity line & i cant imagine anyone more passionate about sharing Matilda Jane!! She just gets how much I love these beautiful clothes for my daughter, but she has also helped me to truly understand that Matilda Jane is about SO much more than just clothes 🙂 There is something undescribable that I feel I am a part of when my Lainey Belle wears her MJ. What a beautiful gift Jennifer has shared with our family <3 I love my TK!!

Kristen Fennessy - February 16, 2012 - 5:09 pm

My trunk keeper Marcia Carroll is the BEST! She genuinely loves what she does and it is evident in every way! She is very sweet and kind, and goes above and beyond to make her customers and Jane’s happy. She works her tail off to ensure we get the items we want, that we are completely happy with our purchases…and she puts together the most amazing outfits, and makes suggestions for other outfits based off of items we already have. She is beautiful both inside and out, and I am so happy to have her in CT!

Cristy Daly - February 16, 2012 - 5:00 pm

My trunk keeper is Cathy Yohe and she is by far the best! Cathy is always willing to go that extra mile! She is always making sure her customers are happy and in turn that makes us all want to come back to buy more and more! In the past, Cathy has passed down clothing that were her daughters at no charge! She always has a goodie such as a hair clip when we come to view the new lines. What I love about Cathy is that she is able to multi task being a wife, take care and mother her four children, and show her love for MJ! Being a trunk keeper to Cathy is not a job – it’s something that she loves and does to see others happy. Cathy is always there to give matching advice and will let you stay at her house to look at clothes over and over. That takes some patience to have your guest look at the same item 10 times or more (I have a bad habit of this because I love it all and can never make up my mind!) Cathy can wear any MJ piece and she looks awesome in all of it! I’m really glad that I found Matilda Jane and her about 2 years ago. I could go on and on about her but she really is the best! You can see her love for MJ and I will buy from her as long as my daughter still fits and you keep making it 🙂

I just found Kelly from Perrysburg, Oh. She helped me find my daughter’s dress that she just had to have 🙂

Bees Hive - February 16, 2012 - 3:58 pm

My “oh so amazing and beyond fabulous” TK is Penny Bauer. She is so special because she always is checkin’ in on me. If she hasn’t heard a word in a while…she finds me and says, ” I haven’t heard from you, How is everything going?” She recently thanked my husband for his service to our country too. Kindhearted is her middle name. I LOVE her dearly!!!

Mary Elizabeth Pounders - February 16, 2012 - 3:57 pm

My local TK is Shelly Cloud. We met 2 yrs ago when I first ordered MJ, and I can honestly say that I am crazy about her. She is so warm and kind. Amazing how well she juggles everything with such grace!

Jamie Markley - February 16, 2012 - 3:03 pm

Amber Neal was my trunk keeper for a long time but after having twins this past summer she is no longer a TK. She was so awesome to work with and I had fun getting to know her! My new TK is Sara Spitler, I dont know her very well yet but she has done a great job taking care of anything I have needed. 🙂

Heather P. - February 16, 2012 - 3:01 pm

My fabulous trunk keeper is Lisa Paul! I don’t know how she does it, but she always knows what my picky daughter will love in each release. She has always been spot on when it comes to sizing also. I’m sure she has tons of people calling/emailing with questions and some how she always makes me feel like I’m the only one she is helping. During my trunk shows, she is so down to earth and makes each of my friends and their daughters feel special.

Meredith - February 16, 2012 - 2:44 pm

April Blair, in Knoxville, TN, is my trunk keeper. This girl is the 🙂 I was introduced to Matilda Jane by a close friend. However, I only have a son. April goes above and beyond to keep me updated on mommy pieces and there releases. I never feel awkward at her trunk shows even though, most of the time, I’m the only mommy there soley buying for myself. 🙂

Carrie - February 16, 2012 - 2:41 pm

Shannon Armitage is my tk. She is always there for anything I need and makes things super easy for her janes and customers. 🙂

calah young - February 16, 2012 - 2:29 pm

Nicole Pierno. She’s very special because she’s extremely helpful. Even when I was very new to MJ and I was undoubtedly annoying with all of my questions, she was very patient with me. I also enjoy visiting her home. Her beautiful home + MJC= an excellent time:)

Dawn M - February 16, 2012 - 2:29 pm

My trunk keeper is Natalie Kukla! I went to her house on the opening of Serendipity on Feb 1st and the whole experience was just so much fun. She was there to help with sizes and everything! She had little snacks out while we shopped. I mean shopping and Panera ( cinnamon crunch bagels with hazelnut spread) Oh my! DEVINE! 😉 It was so wonderful especially when it is Matilda Jane. She is so kind and is always there to help when you need her. She also had little bags of animal crackers out that said serendipity on them. It’s the little things that makes me happy and she does them well!!!

Kristen Harris - February 16, 2012 - 2:24 pm

Ashlee Johansen is my Trunk keeper. She is great at coordinating outfits!

alyssa P - February 16, 2012 - 2:17 pm

Alison Spicer. I met Alison last fall when I contacted MJC about hosting a show. I paired my first show with a school fundraiser and was able purchase a dress as an auction donation. I went on to host a virtual show during the Fall sale and most recently a trunk showfor the Serendipity line.

Having no experience with the MJC brand, I am so impressed with Alison’s knowledge of the company and her patience. She truly embodies the true MJC spirit. My last show barely made, and during the show, my husband and I talked about using some of the cash point for a dress for a neighbor. My daughters best friend was diagnosed with Leukemia over Christmas and we wanted to get her something special. Unfortunately, my party had no cash points but Alison came through with a trunk keeper share the love and passed the MJC spirit of giving on to my friend. She was really touched and so was I. Thank you for Alison and her giving spirit, her knowledge and her amazing patience…a true gem!

Alyssa P.

Meredith Blair - February 16, 2012 - 2:15 pm

My trunk keeper is April Blair from Knoxville,Tn. No we are not related but we did find out that our husbands have the same name when I started getting phone calls for her husband and vice versa. I am a teacher at her daughter’s school where April takes time to come help out each week. She is a wonderfully helpful TK and also has a big heart. When I recently told her that my sister was diagnosed with Lukemia she immediately offered to donate a MJ piece for an item at our fundraiser. I just think she is what MJ wants their TK to portray! Thanks for asking!

Tammy Pierson - February 16, 2012 - 2:10 pm

I am from Missouri. My TK, oddly enough, is Tasha Buchler up in New York. My BFF lives up there and is a Jane. Tasha is so sweet and easy going. She knows how CRAZY we all get on release day, but handles everything like a whiz! I feel like I’m chatting with a close girlfriend every time we talk. She takes the time to know each of our little ones, their builds and their likes and dislikes. LOVE YA, TASHA!!

Brenda H - February 16, 2012 - 2:05 pm

Alison Spicer, Plymouth, MI! When my hubby was laid off, she made sure my girls were still styling! She knows how to spread the love!!

Cheryl - February 16, 2012 - 2:01 pm

Ashley Lindler is my TK extraordinaire! We both live in Columbia, SC and I now feel like she also a friend. She knows her MJ in and out! I thought she had been a TK for forever but then I found out she is somewhat new to the business – you surely can’t tell. She really is great! Thanks!!!

Caryn Sachar - February 16, 2012 - 1:44 pm

My sweet TK is Leigh Manns here in Charlotte, NC. She ALWAYS has time to answer my calls/texts (even during the 1st day of Serendipty’s release!!), and goes out of her way to help out. She’s pregnant, and on the day of my (1st ever) Trunk Show, I open my door, and she’s standing there with a HUGE wooden display and tubs of clothes. Um…did I mention she was 28 weeks pregnant? She is a GREAT Matilda Jane representative, and I just want her to know she’s appreciated… 🙂

Kelly Owen - February 16, 2012 - 1:32 pm

My truck keeper is Shelly Cloud….she is wonderful very infomative in keeping in the loop and really has helped me with ordering and one time when something happened and she worked hard and got it fixed FAST!! I think I have called her at all times of the day and maybe even during the weekend and it did not bother her ONE SINGLE BIT….so all in all

Abby F. - February 16, 2012 - 1:31 pm

My trunk keeper is Nicole Hardin! Love her. She keeps it simple. As a working mamma I usually can’t make it to see the clothes in person, but she still helps me decide on pieces for my little lady.

Larissa McBride - February 16, 2012 - 1:30 pm

Chantel Russell… I hosted my first trunk show with Chantel this month to introduce my friends to Serendipity… before meeting her in person I have spent the past several years buying the cutest MJ clothes for my daughter Riley… Chantel has sold my friends on the clothing line and we are definitely bringing the clothes back this Fall!!!

Loretta Czarnomski - February 16, 2012 - 1:26 pm

Kristen Fridley. As I’m gearing up for my first MJ show, Kristen has been so wonderful in sharing information, answering questions and pumping me full of MJC energy (like I need any more). I cannot wait to bring MJ to our next of the woods in NE Ohio…

Hope Boyce - February 16, 2012 - 1:19 pm

Kathleen Smith from Franklin, TN is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. – period! I have 11 grandkids – 9 girls and 2 boys. In addition, we (Kathleen and I) have their mothers – my 3 girls and 1 DIL! Kathleen has them all figured out by family, city/state, sizes, personalities, favorites, dislikes, who-has-what-already and who-loves-what’s-new!! Plus, I am the most high maintenance client … EVER! But she gets me … she totally gets me! If I need props for a photo shoot and the package has to be in the mail ASAP for overnight delivery … no prob! I need to get a b-day gift in the mail so that means I have to shop her stash … no prob! I need for her to mail something for me … no prob! Love her and the A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. job she does!! Did I say she is amazing?

Suzy R. - February 16, 2012 - 1:16 pm

My TK is Stacey Gutterman, from Virginia Beach, VA! She is Amazing! She has always gone above and beyond to help me, when my Daughter was very sick she would sit on the phone and describe the clothes to me b/c I wasn’t sure if I could come and see them at her house, she has a wonderful heart! I consider Stacey a good friend now and I have Matilda Jane to thank for introducing us!

Jamie - February 16, 2012 - 1:16 pm

TK-Chantel Russell. She totally rocks!!! Super sweet, always there to help & serve, and doesn’t hesitate to go the extra mile….ever!!! :).

Sophie~Bug's Mom - February 16, 2012 - 1:12 pm

My trunk keeper is Natalie Kukla. Natalie is one of those people that you meet that just makes you smile to be around… you are first taken with her beauty… then you realize that it is so much more than skin deep! She immediately makes you feel important and of course, her daughters are always dressed in MJ and you want your daughter to be just as gorgeous as they are! Like somebody said above… it feels like we have been friends for forever.

Cathy Piper - February 16, 2012 - 1:07 pm

Angie Huff (Georgia Girl) :)! She is awesome! I just met her within the last few months and she is always on top of everything. From answering my many phone calls and texts with questions to hosting me and all my girlfriends for Premiers, she’s so sweet and welcoming. So thankful for her and MJC :)!

Ronna - February 16, 2012 - 12:54 pm

Sheri Word. She works so hard and really goes out of her way to help her customers. She has a great sense of humor and she’s just great!

Ashley B. - February 16, 2012 - 12:47 pm

I have the BEST Trunk Keeper EVER!!! Her name is Mande England and she is amazing! We have become fast friends and help each other through shows and the season. After Nia C. I didn’t think their could be anyone who measures up…but Mande came along and she is just AMAZING! You girls sure know how to pick your TK’s! 🙂

Amber V - February 16, 2012 - 12:46 pm

Well i dont have a trunk keeper who lives here but that would be way cool if i did. I think it would be fun to have Arrington as a TK any girl who would live in a world of spandex sounds like fun to me;)

Kate - February 16, 2012 - 12:44 pm

Well–I sorta have 2 trunk keepers. First, Miss April Blair from Knoxville, TN is super special because she totally understood when I ordered from my other amazing TK Shana Eppinger during her first season (from Zelienople, PA) because she is an old high school friend. You know…one of those people who is one of those “true friends”, the kind that bring you cookies when you are feeling low….it appears she is still like that, too! From North to South–they both have the sweetest hearts!

Amanda Wood - February 16, 2012 - 12:42 pm

TK is Lisa Paul. Im relatively new to MJC and still getting used to the crazyness of a first release. She went above and beyond to get me some of my wishes since my first trunk show was a few days after the Feb 1 release and some items were already sold out. Thanks again Lisa!!

Betsy Reagan - February 16, 2012 - 12:41 pm

My tk is kind of random, i got matched up with her through a show someone posted on Facebook over a year ago… She is in ak I am in tn. Random yes, but a great match for me. She is the jan Collins, she is patient with my ever-changing mind and gets me the things I love!! Plus she calls me back quickly and is completely honest with me when my budget is tight and I can’t get everything, her suggestions are perfect! Thanks jan!!! And I have never met her in person but feel like I have…. Feels like we have been friends for years… And that is MJ for you!!!

Vanessa Reese - February 16, 2012 - 12:37 pm

Missy dill is my favorite trunk keeper- she’s brand new, and learning the ropes, but she’s doing a great job! She’s so cheerful and excited about her new job! She’s great to work with!

Jennifer - February 16, 2012 - 12:28 pm

My TK’s name is Jamie Bartell. 🙂 She is quick to answer questions, always gets what I need on my wish lists, and is such a sweetie to work with. Thank you!
