Jenny Kompolt and Melissa James founded Junk Girls in 2009. Feeling the need for a new career path after working in the corporate world for 18+ years, these two put their collective skill sets together to do something meaningful that would make a difference for both themselves and their community. Jenny and Melissa use art as a creative outlet to craft treasures out of vintage and forgotten objects. What one person might see as junk, they see as an opportunity to build, create and share newfound treasures.
