The Wade Creek House, located on an acre in the city limits of Estacada, has a real country feel. Chickens, a country garden, old grain silo, and the quaint 1940's house and wonderful barn is just the beginning of what you will find.

Our many vendors are great at shopping, salvaging and scavenging. We have lots of treasures: vintage, primitive, rusty, old, antiques, reclaimed, repurposed, revived, military, collectibles, home, garden and much more. Our vendors make sure there is something for everyone. So bring a friend and come for a visit.. Estacada has lots to offer.

smiles all around.  We had a great time going to all the coops this year.

These chickens are pampered and prissy.... their yard amazing!
