THE SUNFLOWERS ARE OPEN!! The birds will be happy this fall!

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 three 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 décor. Come and see what they have found for you!!

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

I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance,
A church filled with family and friends.
I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for,
He said one that would make me his wife to the end.

A TOUCH OF WHIMSY

Janet Eastman of the Oregonian liked this class.  See the article she wrote.. click on the link. 

 
Have you ever walked around someone's yard and noticed a little something tucked in...  something that adds just a touch of whimsy?  Well this Saturday, August 9th at 10:30, Nikki is showing you how to create wonderful concrete garden art in the form of a stepping stone you can design yourself or a concrete tic-tac-toe game board.  This art is both functional and decorative.   Everything is included to make these stones that you decorate yourself with colored rocks, decorative glass, or ceramic shards.

We only ask that you please bring a 18 inch x 18 inch strong box or piece of plywood to transport your creations home.  Add a touch of whimsy to your yard.... a little something special.  Cost is $25 and reservations required..   503-630-7556

Here are some from last year.....

 




 
 
 
I love working with concrete and getting those wonderful lasting results...   Nikki will show you how.

Time for a little more about us... or one of us

Sonya joined us in August 2008 so her 6 year anniversary is coming up.  Everyone knows Sonya as she has been collecting for many years and you see her flying through sales on the weekends.   Sonya has a flare for display, design and color.  Our members look to her for help with reviving furniture and when they struggle with display in their booth.  It is like she goes in and waves her arms and voilà! ... it looks amazing. 

Recently we surveyed the members to see what they liked to collect and after a little thought Sonya explains that her collection isn't much about collecting a particular item but rather collecting items with something in common.  “I guess what I collect is rust--lots of it”. She grew up on a farm in Montana. She says she likes to find very “cheap” rusty, crusty, chippy, peeley painted stuff and clean it, work it, and sometimes repurpose it. Her favorite style is the French Nordic country--lots of white with soft colors, inexpensive, and beautiful in its simplicity.


And here are some of the great things you will find in her space at Wade Creek House.
