Heart's Desire

About Us

We’re Heart's Desire, and we’ve been an antique, decor, and gift store here in Fairbury, since 1996. We have a wide selection of unique items and are passionate about supporting other businesses in the small area we live in. We’d like to personally invite you to stop by and shop around!

Our Story

Nestled in the heart of Fairbury, Illinois, Heart's Desire stands as a beacon of timeless charm and unparalleled elegance. As a premier antique store, we pride ourselves on curating an exquisite collection of treasures that span the ages, from vintage marvels to rare finds. Beyond antiques and collectibles, our emporium boasts a delightful array of home décor pieces that add character and warmth to any space, alongside seasonal gifts that capture the spirit of every occasion. At Heart's Desire, our doors welcome all, offering a sanctuary where men, women, and children alike can wander and wonder amidst the splendor of the past.

Founded by our visionary owner, Bobbi, in 1996, Heart's Desire was born out of a passion for creating a haven for travelers and locals alike in the picturesque landscape of Fairbury, Illinois. Recognizing the need for a destination that offered an eclectic mix of treasures, Bobbi seized the opportunity when the previous establishment closed its doors. With a keen eye for unique finds and a lifelong love for shopping, Bobbi transformed the former space into Heart's Desire, preserving its legacy while infusing it with her own distinctive flair. Today, our store stands as a testament to Bobbi's vision, offering a curated selection that embodies the spirit of exploration and discovery.

Bobbi has cultivated a vibrant and inclusive community within Heart's Desire, involving a diverse array of vendors who rent out spaces to showcase their crafts and gifts. Unlike the stereotypical musty ambiance often associated with antique stores, Heart's Desire exudes a refreshing and clean atmosphere. The collaborative spirit of the vendors and their unique offerings infuses the space with a welcoming energy, eliminating any trace of the "old smell" often associated with vintage shops. This family-owned establishment thrives on the essence of unity, providing a platform for individual talents to shine while collectively contributing to the store's eclectic charm. At Heart's Desire, the harmonious blend of diverse voices and a commitment to cleanliness create an inviting environment that resonates with both the nostalgic and contemporary tastes of our cherished customers.

We extend a warm invitation for you to visit our store, located at 805 E Oak St in Fairbury, IL. Whether you're a seasoned collector, a home decor enthusiast, or simply seeking unique gifts, our doors are open to welcome you. If you have any questions or need further information about our offerings or store hours, please don't hesitate to give us a call at 815-692-4500. We look forward to sharing the experience of Heart's Desire with you.
