The Etsy Woman Marketplace is a marketplace created and run by the United Methodist Women chapter of First United Methodist Church of Oak Park. It was created to empower and recognize female entrepreneurs in the handmade and vintage industry.

In the past, UMW sponsored a bake sale and small craft show. In building a community of women, we felt the need to expand and use our space to welcome in local area crafters.

Besides the UMW Marketplace, there is also a lunch available presented by the FUMC Women’s Group. Feel free to browse, eat and shop.

We’ve invited crafters from all over the village and the Chicago area to bring you their bath and skin products, jewelry, knitted items, candles and all kinds of handcrafted and vintage wares.

We have three shows planned: the first is the Mother’s Day sale. Purchase gifts and goodies for moms, sisters, brothers – just come shop for everyone.

The second show, is a supply sale. Business owners often have overstock and this is the opportunity for makers to get great deals on yarn, fabrics, beads and other items to make it yourself.

The third show is the holiday show, held during the Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Small Business Saturday timeframe, it’s the perfect time for that holiday, gift giving shopping.
