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.

THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS... isn't there a song with that title?

The other day my daughter-in-law was looking for the movie, The Sound of Music,  for a friend.  Since then, I can't seem to get this line out of my head when I look around the shop...  So instead of trying to fight it, I thought I would use it.  You can hum along as you look through some of my new favorite things.




This book really interests me.  Written by a former Oregon govenor from the 1800's, T. T. Geer wrote this book about "experiences, observations and commentaries upon men, measures, and customs in pioneer days and later times."  It was written in 1912 - and talking about pioneer times.  What an amazing find.



We have a couple new antique hand painted globe lamps.  So beautiful.



An old cistern water pump from Kansas.  Prety cool.. you don't see these around here.



If you remember, Jan had a whole collection of Popular Mechanics magazines from her dads estate.  From the 1920's to the 1970's.  Jan has retired, left the membership at The Wade Creek House and settled in Pine Hollow and took her magazines with her.  I had the opportunity to get them back as I just love them.  They make a great gift for the guys in your life.  Come check them out.  They are in amazing condition.


Amber, another one of our creative members, created this wonderful chicken out of stained glass and her special technique.  Absolutely beautiful.  She is in the process of creating a Mt. Hood picture to bring in next. 



And speaking of being creative, Carrie crafted this Love picture.... perfect as a Valentines gift to hang all year....    Its almost that time of year you know.



These are very unusual.  Hawkins Electrical Guides from the early 1900's... Very cool

That is it for today... keep humming. 
Did you know that people that hum and people that whistle are happy people...
