R Sulliavn, welcome! I second FB Oak Park Area Mom's Resale page. It's also a great way to ask questions, recommendations and support. You get a ton of responses pretty quickly. Good luck!

R Sullivan - there is a private Facebook Garage Sale group where I have sold a lot of baby things.  Search "Baby Items garage sale Oak park River forest And Surrounding Areas" and it should come up.  Since it's private an admin will have to add you I think.

Hello.  We have been in Oak Park for a short while now -- love it.  Our daughter is outgrowing so many of her things and we were wondering -- does anyone know a good way to locally sell nursery furniture or other items?  Thanks for your help and advise.

Hi, My name is Latoya Bynoe and I am looking for a family interested in a Nanny Share. I have a Nanny in mind who is highly recommended (her former employer's little one is going to Pre-School).

I have an adorable 2 month old and will be returning back to work in August (looking to start childcare services after Labor Day).   I am hoping to find a wonderful family with a child of similar age who lives in Oak Park to share the cost of a full-time Nanny. We live in North Oak Park near Taylor Park. We are somewhat flexible with hours/arrangements. Please email me if you are interested.

Hi!  My name is Ian Sassano. I'm a tennis coach in the Oak Park area and am looking to coach children ages 5 and older this summer and into the fall.  I was a player at Downers Grove North High School and have been a tennis instructor since my senior year in 2007.  I am available for both private and group lessons and if any moms need lessons I can coach adults as well!  My main goal in teaching tennis is to make sure all students learn the tennis basics while having a really fun time in the process.  I look forward to hearing from you, inbox here or email me at

Hello!  My name is Alana Murphy.  I grew up here in Oak Park close to the Lake Street theater, and I am back for the summer after graduating from college.  I will be here until August, and I am looking to get more babysitting clients.  I am extremely comfortable taking care of children, and have worked as a Sunday school teacher for two and three year-olds as well as an assistant teacher at an Sycamore Elementary School, CA for first and second graders.  My schedule is pretty flexible.  Please contact me at and we can then arrange to meet in person or talk over the phone to discuss details.
