Eyes by India first opened its doors in Indiana to provide threading as an alternative to waxing. Threading is more precise than waxing and causes less pain, redness, and burning when removing unwanted fuzz. Now with nine locations in two states, Eyes by India’s staff of specialists completes more than 100 hours of training in threading and service etiquette before applying those skills to patrons’ faces at work and image-conscious teddy bears at home. During appointments, cotton thread twists over hair, tweaking hairlines and brow lines or removing all traces of fuzz on the neck, chin, or upper lip.
Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to recreate look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea-battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
A photograph can do much to capture a single moment, be it a baby’s first yawn or a wedding-day kiss, but not all photographs do this moment justice. That’s where Elizabeth Murphy of Artistic Buzz steps in. The digital artist scans in photographs and then adds artistic embellishments—such as soft brushstrokes or a woodsy, fall setting—to more accurately reflect a personality or specific mood. Additionally, she trades in computer clicks for hundreds of small tiles to create mosaic-style portraits of pets or loved ones. The result is a completely customized work of art that can be treasured for years to come.

Since offering its first batch of all edible, no-filler bird feed named Old Bob White back in 1975, Old Bob's has transformed into an eclectic shop for all things outdoors, as well as home decor and furnishings.

Wild bird supplies, which include woodpecker feeders, entice avian near and far to swoop into customers' yards for a quick snack, filling outdoor spaces with lively chirps and dissuading the giant worm next door from digging into your yard. Not just for birds, the shop's outdoor items also include bat houses, basketball goals, and a large collection of in-stock and special order wallpapers.
