Treasure-seekers have another place to explore.

Junk & Disorderly Antiques and Collectibles recently celebrated its grand opening at 140. E. Cerro Gordo St. in Decatur.

“I don't have one thing that I search for,” owner Dawn Summers said. “It's  whatever catches my eye.”

That method of collecting stuff for resale guarentees a variety of items to choose from. Inventory ranges from antiques, to furniture, glassware, knickknacks and more.

Summer also provides a sales venue for locally made lotions, soaps and bath bombs, as well as refurbished stuff provided by Rusty Relics.

“I've always like to collect stuff, , refurbish furniture and messing with stuff,” Summers said. “Now I have a place to sell it.”

As an added bonus this weekend, Santa will be at the store from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. But he won't be driving a sleigh. Instead, he will be hanging out and taking pictures in a 1950 Chevy.

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays. Call (217) 707-0675.

First Mid-Illinois Bancshares, Inc. has announced a definitive agreement to acquire all of the outstanding shares of First Bank, the holding company for First Bank & Trust.

“The acquisition of First Bank deepens our presence in the attractive Champaign-Urbana market and provides expanded opportunities in adjacent counties,” said Joe Dively, Frist Mid's chairman and chief executive officer. “First Bank has a long history of providing excellent service with a community-minded focus and the merged organizations will be even stronger.”

The transaction has been unanimously approved by each company’s board of directors and is expected to close in mid-2018, subject to regulatory approvals, the approval of First Bank’s stockholders and the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Following completion of the transaction, First Mid is expected to have approximately $3.3 billion in total assets. In addition, First Mid currently operates a wealth and trust management business with approximately $1.5 billion in assets under management and an insurance business with $3.5 million in annual revenue.
