Valentine’s Day Brings Cheer

Here we are! Mid-February, Valentine’s Day helps bring back some cheer in the doldrums of winter. Remember as children in school, the Valentine parties were always fun.

Today is the day! (February 14th) Remember to shop locally for your Valentine cards and gifts. With all the shops, restaurants, and area businesses, there are lots of choices for gifts.

Whether you are looking for chocolates, flowers, hand-made items, custom-engraved items, decorated cakes, cookies, ice cream cakes, other sweets, treats, or just a card – there are many, many choices in town.

“We have great dining options for Valentine’s Day! And, shop local for something special for your Valentine… it isn’t too late!” says Bobbi McKeon, owner of Heart’s Desire and coordinator of the Specialty Shops group.

“Shopping & dining local is convenient and helps our whole community! We are so fortunate to have so many options and ideas here locally. Because we work together and care about each other, our shops will refer you to each other if our own shop doesn’t have what you need,” Bobbi concludes.

As always, please stop by Heart’s Desire, call Bobbi McKeon at (815) 692-4500 or email fairbury@fairburyILattractions.com with any stories, ideas or suggestions for interesting topics to write for our community.
