Artisans & Crafters Unique Boutique
A not-for-profit marketplace that gives local artisans a place to showcase and sell their artwork
Eclectic handcrafted products and gifts are aplenty at this Oak Park not-for-profit marketplace, located at 839 S. Oak Park Ave. (708 848-4693).
There’s something for everyone, from hand-knit children’s clothes and toys to hand-painted glassware, one-of-a-kind beaded jewelry, pottery, purses, hand-printed scarves and artisanal soaps. There are even doll clothes, ranging from traditional and ethnic styles to the latest in Disney fashions.
Everything in the shop is handmade by local artisans, with the inventory changing regularly. The shop also serves as a drop off point for Project Linus, collecting blankets from individuals and school classes which, after being finished and prepped by boutique members, are delivered to hospitals.
Operated by the Oak Park Women’s Exchange and now in its 43rd year, the co-op also offers an annual craft fair each November, a dolls’ tea party in September and occasional classes.Edit Module
