September 2018 Contest
September dates to shop from 9am-3pm:
Thu Sep 6, Sat Sep 15, Sat Sep 22.
It all started in 1919 when a group of women, led by Mrs. Edward McCready, decided to open a shop similar to a thrift store in Evanston where donated home furnishings, clothing, etc. could be sold for the benefit of local charities. So the Economy Shop was conceived. After discussing the possibilities of organizing the resale shop in Oak Park, the women rented a frame house for $45 a month. In 1919 it was known as the old Packard house, the site of the present post office, at the southeast corner of Lake and Kenilworth. Mrs. Charles Ward Seabury signed the first lease.
