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.

Within JF and Company's cheery pink-and-blue walls, racks teem with designer duds, toys, and accessories aimed at infants to 6-year-olds. The family-run boutique was inspired by and named for the owners' two young daughters. From designers such as Giggle Moon, Dogwood, and Bon Bon Cupcakes, kids model outfits in towering full-length mirrors, which allow them to inspect their own faces to ensure they aren’t aging backward. Tiny shoes line tabletops alongside displays of belts, jewelry, frilly tutus, and glittery bows, and a showcase of classic-rock apparel appeases fledgling rockers. Patrons can use provided changing-and-feeding stations, or kids can act out dream jobs as firemen, princesses, or intellectual-property attorneys in the play area.
