Fetching Market was developed and created from a lifelong passion for attending flea markets, treasure hunting at vintage shoppes and collecting quality goods. I owned a lovely shop for 7 years and realized my passion was not only selling goods, but also hosting events at the shop. I wanted to reach more artisans as well as a larger audience so I closed my shop in 2013 and began my new adventure. September 2014 we hosted our first signature market at the Historic Ford Hangar.
Fetching Market strongly believes in supporting small business - brick & mortar shops as well as the cottage industry. Our vendors are strong artistically and technically gifted; they love to fetch and create the best, most unique vintage finds and then display them with an artistic flare.
Fetching Market is Quality Vintage & Handmade Artisan Wares - Our vendors come from across the country and offer one of a kind, small batch, barn finds, vintage items, boutique clothing, chippy rusty stuff, garden items & fresh flowers, beautifully handcrafted jewelry, soaps, lotions, potions, candles, woolens, retro, mid-century, vintage furniture - painted, stripped, recovered, repurposed and more!
Quality Food & Cocktails - Local fare and delish beverages.
Live Music - Local Bands & Solo Artists
Our Staff - Dedicated to make each event an outstanding experience with quality care for guests and vendors
Venues - Fetching Market pops up in historic locations because we love the atmosphere. We are invited by Towns and Villages located in NWI as well as The Chicago Southland to host a market in their community. Fetching Market has an outstanding following plus we draw a new audience each market from each community we are in. This is a great niche to fulfill as it allows us to showcase our artisans and vintage purveyors to a new and larger clientele each market. The community also benefits as we bring folks in from across the Region, Chicagoland as well as Southern and Northern areas that may have never visited before.
NON-for-Profit - Fetching Market features different causes at each market and a portion of the proceeds has benefited :
P.A.S.S. | South Suburban Humane Society | The Flamini Foundation
