FAIRBURY, IL – Specialty Shops of Fairbury – our local group of Shopping Event Wizards have put together a two day event that can serve you well in the quest for something special for Mom. Sunday, May 8th, is the day that we all recognize our Mothers in honor of all they mean to us and all they’ve done for us and, on Friday, May 6th, and Saturday, May 7th, the Fairbury Assemblage of special interest merchandise and services is giving us a shopping opportunity to find that perfect gift for Mother’s Day. In the extensive categories of items that this collection of Merchants have on their shelves and hangers there is everything from special interests to everyday purpose gift ideas that are bound to provide a reason for Mom to smile in appreciation. A nicely expressed card, a thoughtful gift, and a warm hug will give Mom the thanks she deserves and make her day one that you can all feel good about. Something for one of her collections, a personal accessory item, something she’s been wanting for the home, or, a nice hanging basket or bouquet of flowers – no matter what her interests might be there is most likely something in this long list of available potentials that can fill the bill. Get on out there and take advantage of the Specialty Shops various opportunities to make your gift hunt a successful one.
