Specialty Shops’ Spring Open House

Spring is coming, and with it comes flowers, green grass, and the Fairbury Specialty Shops’ Spring Open House!  From 9 am to 5 pm on Friday and Saturday, March 15-16, visit stores all over Fairbury and take advantage of new items, the latest trends, and great deals.  There is something for everyone:  Sale items include everything from food to fashion to fun.  You don’t want to miss the drawings, refreshments, and all the new items!

The Specialty Shops of Fairbury are a collection of local stores and services that cover your day-to-day needs with friendly, convenient service.  The Specialty Shops include Catton’s Creamery (available at Dave’s), The Country Cupboard, Dave’s Supermarket, Fairbury Furniture, Heart’s Desire Antiques & Accents, Kilgus Farmstead Country Store, Lost Arts, Once n’ Again, Serendipity Cards & Gifts, and The Spotted Owl.

“Our shops love this time of year,” says Bobbi McKeon!  “We look forward to seeing everyone ready for spring!  Hope to see you soon.”

Spring!  Yes, spring is coming!  Do you enjoy watching flowers grow?  Do you like helping the environment?  Do both at the Central Illinois Connection Center this week to celebrate Plant a Flower Day (March 12) and Tin Can Month!  Paint and personalize a tin can and turn it into your very own eco-friendly flower pot.  Get your hands dirty and plant a few seeds.  Over the next few months, you get to watch your seed sprout and grow into a beautiful plant.  The Connection Center is open Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm, or come to the Family Fun Hour starting at 4 pm on Wednesday to have some fun with the whole family!

We welcome all of your stories, ideas, and suggestions!  Please send them in by calling (815) 692-4500 or emailing fairbury@fairburyILattractions.com.  You can also visit Bobbi McKeon, coordinator of the Specialty shops of Fairbury, at Heart’s Desire on Route 24.
