It's Your Business: Consignment store to open

By The News-Gazette

Look for Crossroads Corner Consignment to open about Aug. 2 in the Whiteline building on South Neil Street in Champaign.

William Fleming, who co-owns the business with Kenny Lamm, said the store will blend 1,300 square feet of home decor and home consignment items with 13 vendor spaces for antiques dealers.

Altogether, the store will occupy about 2,600 square feet in the southwest corner of the building at 723 S. Neil St., C. Entry will be through double doors off the back parking lot, Fleming said.

Fleming said he and Lamm have been involved in antique and collectible sales for more than 15 years. Their items cover a range of styles that include "mid-century modern," contemporary and vintage decor — "something for everyone," Fleming said.

He said he was attracted to the building because of "the great work the owner (Janet Bubin) has done with the space" and the high traffic brought in by one of the tenants, El Toro restaurant.

"Currently that part of the city has nothing like what we're going to create," he said.

Detailing service opens

Alex Charter has opened an auto-detailing business, Gimme Details, at 3701 W. Springfield Ave., C.

The base price for detailing smaller cars is $150, and the base price for larger cars is $200, Charter said. That includes a full wash, wax and buffing, as well as interior and exterior cleaning.

Customers can specify what they'd like done, with Gimme Details providing extra services or fewer if the customer desires.

Detailing is done by appointment, and Charter can be reached at 979-2691. His sister, Hannah Charter, is also involved in the business.
