The WADE CREEK HOUSE ANTIQUES opened in 2007. Located in an old 1940's home, we have expanded many times so there are many areas for you to browse. Located on an acre in Estacada, Oregon, your children can visit with our chickens (yes, we sell eggs) as you look around.

We are much more than an antiques store. We host four fundraisers every year; The Chicken Chat & Coop tour in April, Chairs for Charity in June, Estacada Garden Tour in July, and Santa in December. We also have OUTDOOR VINTAGE MARKETS every summer and hold classes and workshops throughout the year. You can find details BELOW.

OUR VENDORS LOVE TO SHOP FOR YOU. They specialize in old, rusty, antique, primitive, vintage, recycled, revived, repurposed, salvaged, scavenged, chippy, farm, collectibles, indoor and outdoor d├ęcor. Come and see what they have found for you!!

OPEN DAILY - MONDAY - SATURDAY 10a - 6p and SUNDAY 11a - 5p.

Honey -  I love to cook with it, bake with it, and love to put it in my tea on these cold mornings.  It is nature's energy booster,  it is a great immunity system builder and is a natural remedy for many ailments.  So besides the wonderful taste and many uses of honey, it is also a great gift.

What this is leading up to is that the honey from our bees living at The Wade Creek House is now in the shop.  Finally.  There is a limited supply so hurry in.


I knew there was a reason I hadn't gotten out there and cleaned up my garden for winter....

FROM BURLAP WREATHS TO TRASH 2 TREASURE - a small furniture workshop ... READ ON...

 The burlap wreath class last weekend was so much fun... see some of the finished wreaths.  I love mine!

This week-end Carrie is going to offer her Trash-2-Treasure class.  Here you get to choose from several small vintage furniture pieces and then Carrie will assist you in learning and executing techniques to transform these pieces giving them new life.  Everything is included.  There is a variety of paint colors to choose from but if you have a specific color you want to use you are welcome to bring it. (satin or flat)  Also if you are a messy painter like me, bring a paint shirt.  This is a great class to take on your own or with a friend.  Limited class size so call to reserve your space.  Cost is $75.


Recycling turns things into other things which is like MAGIC......

Thank You!

This has been a special week being with family and celebrating the life of our niece.  We are home again and feel grateful and blessed. The members of The Wade Creek House kept everything going and we really appreciated not having to worry about the shop.  Thank you!  The little things are important too.  And I get lots of pleasure out of the little things.  Like my chickens....  Avalene and I decided to see if the chickens had any eggs.  We opened their boxes and there was Dottie and Toots just getting settled in. 

 Again, thank you and we are looking forward to see everyone soon! 
Family is like music, some high notes, some low notes, but always a beautiful song.....

This is my beautiful niece who lost her battle with bone cancer on Wednesday September 24, 2014.  Her name is Debbie and she was 47 with a husband of 21 years and children ages 12 and 18.  She spent her entire life helping others by caregiving, being a special education professional, and last year she started her own business by sharing her journey to heath through diet on a blog and Facebook pages called "The Sour Path is the Sweetest".   Her amazing story about healthy food choices helped so many world wide. My family learned about her amazing impact on others as we were contacted by people from across the country and overseas. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in April 2014.

For me, Debbie was my friend, my daughter, my sister.  She loved to help me with my business and she was so much better at it than I.  From helping me with my blog and Facebook pages, suggesting helpful web sites that could help me make better flyers, and she recommended books that could help me take better pictures.  She also suggested helpful books to read when I struggled with some issues in my own business. When she needed distraction during hard times, "talk to me" was always about my business and hers.  She recently became a  Nutritional Therapist  and with that and her personal experiences she had planned to open her own practice this past summer.  We all need a champion like Debbie. She will be missed, but her spirit lives on in many.

She liked that I used quotes occasionally at the end of my posts.  It was her idea to use them more.  So ........
Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.
