FAIRBURY, IL – Fairbury’s Specialty Shops – how about a Fall Open House? Well, we’re coming up on the Fall season and this innovative group is going to “open up their houses”, in a manner of speaking. As the leaves turn and the weather cools down you can adapt to that theme with these unique merchandise purveyors and their ongoing efforts to provide interesting tweaks to the shopping experience. Take a tour of the Fairbury “trail of opportunity” in finding that special something that’s going to go so perfectly in its place at your place or, as that unique gift for someone you care about. Of course these shops are open all the time for exactly that kind of browsing but, on Friday, September 16th and Saturday, September 17th, there are some added incentives to get out and do that item hunting that you’ve been wanting to do.
