Junket: Tossed & Found is a mission-driven small business in South Minneapolis: we help to connect people with the things they need, and make it easier (and fun!) to be ecologically sensitive consumers.

We’re open seven days a week, 10AM-8PM, at 4049 Minnehaha Avenue (55406).

This is how Junket came to be, and here are a few things that others are saying about us:
