Why I started Junque Genius Studio & Marketplace

Retail is my passion and I’ve truly seen it from all angles. This valuable experience has provided me with a unique perspective on owning a creative business and effectively marketing my own work. What I’m most grateful for is to be able to come to work each day in historic Irwin, bringing seasonal home décor, accessories and gifts to my family, friends and neighbors, who have supported me on this journey. I’m excited to be a part of this community and strive to make your visit to our studio a peaceful and enjoyable experience. Please come in and be inspired!
