Craft Talk

Bill Junco has been married to Linda for 27 years and they have 4 grandchildren, 3 sons and a princess.

9 years ago they bought a floral shop in Cottage Grove and 3 years ago they bought Lindskoog Florists in downtown Minneapolis. Their business is about 25% funerals, 10% weddings, and the rest is everyday flower orders for birthdays, anniversaries, business lobbies, and just because flowers brighten your day.

COVID-19 has hit downtown hard and foot traffic by the store has dropped by more than 90% as people work from home or stay in their office all day.
