Specialty Shops of Fairbury – the “holiday season” is almost upon us and our local group of merchants, who specialize in “outside the box” shopping, have put together a Holiday Open House event on Monday, November 7th, with expanded hours for many shops from 9am to 8pm.
These shops have all kinds of merchandise lines from hobby supplies to home decor to everyday items and beyond. You can find those special gifts, the perfect addition to you front room or office, innovative kitchen items, antiques, all kinds of unique ideas for the house and yard, along with the cards to turn any purchase into a gift worth giving. You can also find a great arrangement of foods, seasonings, and treats (regular and special) and all the things that help make those dining supplies into the finished product. It’s never too early to get started on your gift list and, of course, there are always the things that make life easier and better for your own enjoyment.
