Mayslake Peabody Estate Holiday Market

Complete your holiday shopping while supporting talented artisans during the annual holiday market at Oak Brook's Mayslake Peabody Estate from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Dec. 7 and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 8. Admission to the market is free.

Fifteen vendors will offer an assortment of jewelry and accessories, tableware, teas, gourmet oils and vinegars, decorative home goods, books and more. A gallery-style showing of original works will be sold by local members of the Alliance of Fine Art. You can also purchase tickets for a raffle for a fabulous collection of wine.

Tickets are $5 each or five for $20, and proceeds support First Folio Theatre, Mayslake’s resident theatrical troupe, and the Mayslake Hall Restoration Society.

Mayslake Hall was built between 1919 and 1921 by Francis Stuyvesant Peabody, a national figure in the coal industry. Later in the century, the Franciscan Order of Friars Minor used the estate as a center for religious growth. Today, it is on the National Register of Historic Places and stands as a unique cultural resource for the community offering special events, classes, art exhibits and tours.
