The Specialty Shops Group of Fairbury – this Shopping Mecca for unique, special interest, and every day merchandise and services is joining forces with the Fairbury Fair to add their “flair” to one of Fairbury’s more exciting summer time frames. These Guru’s of the “shopping adventure” are extending a welcome to the Fair visitors with their incredible diversity of interesting and appealing merchandise that not only provides a bonanza of bargains but also makes for a lot of fun in just “looking” for new ideas and innovative gifts. Each of these shops and businesses will have their “in house” attractions and, its a comfortable, atmospherically controlled, way to take a break from the Fair’s Midway and maybe find that “thing” that really fits you or, someone you want to get something for.
