DECATUR – Millikin University will host the annual Millikin Makers Market on Sunday, March 12 from Noon-4 p.m. at the Bob and Debi Johnston Banquet Rooms on the third floor of the University Commons.
The third annual event is put on by the Women in Business (WIB) student organization and will feature makers, crafters and artists from the Millikin and Macon County community offering a wide range of goods and services.
The 2023 Millikin Makers Market is scheduled to have more than 30 vendors. Items for sale include clothing, soaps, candles, tumblers, jewelry, artwork, greeting cards, baked goods and much more. Some of the services available include photography and financial services.
Admission is open to the public and parking on campus is free.
President of Women in Business Paige Coleman, a junior Management Information Systems (MIS) and Business Management double major, sees many Performance Learning opportunities, including project management and networking, for the WIB students organizing the Makers Market.
“Women in Business is open to any student who wants to join because we realized that you don’t have to be in the Tabor School of Business to have entrepreneurial interests,” Coleman said. “We are very excited to network with small business owners in the community while helping them grow their businesses. This is also a great family-friendly event for those in the Decatur area.”
Payment methods accepted at the Millikin Makers Market will vary by vendor, including cash, credit card and mobile apps.
