What do you have when four ladies make their way to shop and eat all day-oh- and throw in a little wine purchasing for good measure?


Well-deserved fun!

We took off early on a Saturday. The trip takes a little over an hour from Champaign. Jan drove us in her nice SUV for our trek, with stops at Wright’s Furniture, located in Dieterich, John Boos Factory Showroom and Outlet, The Firefly Grill, The B Line Boutique, The Last Straw and Village Wine and Gifts, all located in Effingham.

See the pictures for a breakdown on the day’s fun. (See below.)
