THE SUNFLOWERS ARE READY TO POP!!!

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 d├ęcor. Come and see what they have found for you!!

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

CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!



THE WADE CREEK HOUSE





COME FOR A VISIT AND SIT A WHILE...


We had a wonderful day for a garden tour. Beautiful gardens, gracious hosts and hostesses, and inspiration everywhere. Thank you to our garden owners for opening up their gardens to us. Thank you to our “ tourees” for their feedback on what a wonderful day it was. Every garden amazing, inspiring, and motivating. And all for a great cause. The money total has yet to be tallied, but all proceeds from this garden tour will be donated to our Estacada Senior Community Center. Thank you to Pam Vincent for doing such a great job organizing the day.

Next Saturday, July 28th, Linda will be helping us create our own Rustic Small Tool Organizer at The Wade Creek House. Practical, primitive, and perfect for my shed wall. Workshop starts at 11am so call the shop (503-630-7556) to reserve your spot. Cost is $25… this is going to be fun!

TO MOB AND TO BE MOBBED..

So much happening, it is hard to keep up. First off, we want to thank Estacada Development Association's Main Street Program AND the Estacada Chamber of Commerce for making us their second CASH MOB site. What is Cash Mob you ask? It is a campaign strategy to promote local, small businesses here in Estacada. How does it work? A date and time is chosen in advance so you can plan on going somewhere. You plan on spending $20 and of course more is ok too. The location is not revealed until 24 hours prior to the mob. Then on the appointed hour, you mob the chosen location and spend that $20. It gives businesses a chance to have a great sales day and to meet/greet new and returning customers and a chance for new customers to meet you. As Carrie said "It was fun, fun, fun! Thank you Estacada!"



Since The Wade Creek House has many members, it was fun to have many of them on hand.






Meet a few of our MOB.... Thank you all for coming!






NOW WE NEED ANOTHER CASH MOB for a very good cause. THIS SATURDAY, JULY 21st, is our SECOND ANNUAL ESTACADA GARDEN TOUR to benefit our Estacada Senior Community Center. Folks around town and a bit out of town, have been working hard getting their gardens ready for touring. Last year the gardens were spectacular, inspiring, and motivating. I can't wait to see this years gardens. Pam Vincent, our wonderful organizer for this event, has done a great job selecting gardens. Remember, if you would like to be part of this tour next year.... let us know! Cost if $15 per person and $25 per couple. All money raised goes to the Senior/Community Center. You can stop by and purchase our tour map early, but maps will not be handed out until day of the tour.






We are looking forward to a wonderful day for a wonderful cause. We hope to see you there!

PLUM SAUCE, RASPBERRY SALSA, and DEVONSHIRE CREAM... OH MY

Today was our Second Annual Farm to Table Tea and it was a memorable experience. Good food, good friends, good times.... it can't get any better than that! Our tea hostess, Patricia Tawney, made this day possible and spectacular. The menu delicious and unique with edible lily filled with ambrosia and topped with strawberry sauce to the croissant filled with chicken salad nasturtium and raspberry salsa. And that was just a portion of the meal.
Pat designed the menu and made everything happen... here she is getting things ready..
Meridith, her daughter Merrit, and I were the servers. This was a new experience for us and was very fun.
Meet our wonderful guests....
I am already looking ahead to next year but Pat will have a hard time topping this one. Space is limited to 20 so remember that next year as spaces fill up quickly.
Tea is instant wisdom... just add water...
