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 community fundraisers, have two
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!!

I AM SO EXCITED!!  The 2015 WADE CREEK HOUSE ANTIQUES GARDEN CALENDAR has just arrived and is now on sale at The Wade Creek House.  I am so proud of the quality of these wonderful calendars.  These are the work and love of our own Nikki Mantei, who takes amazing pictures.  This calendar has been a Christmas gift to my whole family for the past few years and they will be getting them again this year.  Cost is $15... come in and check them out for yourself .

This year, $3 from every calendar sold will be donated to the  SEED project, whose vision is to develop a self supporting, District wide, K-12 garden program.  One of the objectives of the SEED project which started in 2010 is to expand outdoor learning opportunities  where students participate in garden activities which intertwine with their math, science, social studies, and art curriculum.   Obviously a wonderful program for our kids.  For more information about the SEED project, please visit seedestacada.org.     

So think about this wonderful, locally created calendar as a gift for your family, or better yet, a gift to yourself.  A great gift and a great cause...  win win!!

 Never stop learning, because life never stops teaching....

FALL at The Wade Creek House

Each season is special... spring and fall my favorites.
Decorating with corn stalks & pumpkins, drinking fresh squeezed apple cider, and watching the birds feasting on sunflowers left in the garden.
 The shop has some great fall décor for you.  Here is a peek but there is much more around every corner.



We hope to see you soon!

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....

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.....
