Junk is a store located in the town area of Shroom City in Mario Party Advance. Its owner and sole employee is Paratroopa. Unlike most item stores in other Mario Party games, Junk does not sell items needed to move forward or attack other players, as it is available only in single-player mode. If the player enters the store while not on a specific mission, Paratroopa informs the player that the store has not yet opened. It has two notable uses during the game: during Nerd Force V, the player needs to buy a Toad Force V Figure to be allowed entry into the TFV Fan Club, and during Bestest Buds, the player must choose what is the best gift for Bowser between a Bracelet, a Necklace, and a Ring.
