In the early days of running her tanning-bed business in Champaign, Illinois, Kristin Klinker became intrigued with advancements in sunless tanning. She soon began focusing her endeavors on high-end spray tanning, eventually expanding her enterprise into Naperville and going into business with her best friend and mother, Terri. At BodiBronze Sunless Spa, Kristin and her cohort of certified technicians coat clients in a sugar-based DHA solution that adheres to amino acids on the skin, creating a natural bronze that lacks the telltale orange color of old-school spray tans. Within the warm, goldenrod-hued walls of the Naperville studio, these certified tanning technicians help each client match their skin tone to a product, culminating in a bronzed, UV-free complexion that lasts up to 10 days

Turk Furniture has a 125-year-long tradition of beautifying homes with furniture from brand names such as Palliser, Broyhill, and Flexsteel. At the start of each showroom visit, design experts render a quick sketch of clients' rooms, surveying existing furnishings while ignoring unmentionable elephants. Using this information, clients can redecorate rooms with a comfy recliner, update living areas with new entertainment consoles, and dress naked walls in leaning bookcases.

Staffers at Danville Trading Post love finding creative ways to link up antique and gently used merchandise with the community: they promised, for example, to give away a vintage wedding dress to whomever it fit first, and sure enough, the gown soon found a new closet free of charge. Though the inventory constantly changes, treasure hunters can find plenty of unique and historic items for sale, from vintage Coca-Cola vending machines to TV screens.

Perky’s Pizza rustles up a variety of traditional and imaginative pizzas for famished families. With the family combo meal, banqueting broods choose one large signature pizza from Perky's Pizza's doughy roster, relieving a meat-masticating hankering with the double-cheeseburger deluxe, loaded with crispy bacon, hearty beef, and zesty barbecue sauce, or floating away on the Maui Wowie, which features chicken and sweet pineapple basking in a beach of red sauce. Choosy chowhounds point their noses toward the also-included one-topping pizza, selecting a meat, vegetable, or fat-free mineral to add sustenance. Six breadsticks take a dip in garlic or cinnamon before joining the culinary crew, and a troop of 12 chicken wings marches into position while chanting fight songs before being defeated by mercenary molars. Like bookends, a family-sized garden salad and dessert support the meal on either end.

At All Fired Up!, swirling murals of flowers and vines flow across lavender walls, and animal-print tablecloths cover long work tables. This cheerful backdrop makes the pale, unadorned plates, bowls, and vases lining the shop walls stand out in stark contrast. Fortunately, expert potters empower artists of all ages and skill levels to enliven these blank canvases, providing them not only with stamps, stickers, stencils, and paints, but with idea books and helpful tips. Once painters have added the last brushstroke, All Fired Up!’s potters whisk finished masterpieces away to the shop’s kiln where they'll fire and glaze them, just like Donald Trump does to dissidents on his resident staff of Pillsbury doughboys. If patrons can’t drop in to retrieve their wares in one week’s time, staff members can carefully pack them up and ship them at a flat rate across the country.

Internationally acclaimed pilot Amelia Earhart walked the landing strips of Purdue University’s runways, preparing her vessel for a groundbreaking around-the-world trip. Seventy-five years later, the pilots and instructors of Vector Helicopters carry on the tradition of aviation excellence through a full schedule of flight instruction and services. Instructors man the helms of the company’s Schweizer S-300C helicopters, helping students master the skills needed for pilot certification or feel the rush of an introductory flight. The airport’s two runways allow students to get in flight time while certified pilots take citizens out for a spin or monitor terrestrial issues—such as traffic, pipelines, or the mole men’s war games—that are difficult to see at ground level.
