Zionsville’s village-styled downtown area has been a center of attraction for many businesses throughout the years, especially those seeking a small town are located in a building on West Sycamore Street and both said the main motivation behind their move was the touristy feel of the village in Zionsville.
The most recent additions have been the Finer Consigner and Electric Image. These two new businesses were originally in Brownsburg and moved to Zionsville in November. Both are located in a building on West Sycamore Street and both said the main motivation behind their move was the touristy feel of the village in Zionsville.
The Finer Consignor deals with furniture, home décor and clothing.
“It’s kind of an unusual combination when compared to regular consignment stores. I wanted to make it an easy experience for the customer as not everyone looks for just furniture or just clothes. Our set up is more like a boutique than a consignment store,” said Stephanie Hughs, the owner of Finer Consignor.
Hugh’s business was in Brownsburg for more than three years; however, the village’s vibrant culture intrigued her. She started looking for a place in Zionsville and the building at Sycamore caught her eye because it was a free-standing building with its own parking.
Electric image, on the other hand, is a boutique that carries a line of clothing designed by Carole Toole along with an additional designer collection.
As designer/owner of the store, Toole said, “The novelty of what I bring to the area is that if you walk in my store, you would have the opportunity to look at vendor clothing, clothes that I have designed and also the service where I would design something specifically for you.”
Toole has been a resident of Boone County for 40 years and is very familiar with the Zionsville area and the general atmosphere of the village.
“The type of business that we brought in this town was much needed – the discount shopping experience. It’s a good town and our business fits here,” Hughs said.
