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!!

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. ~Anne Frank 

I promised pictures of more chairs that are going to be auctioned off at our CHAIRS FOR CHARITY FUNDRAISER EVENT on June 7th.  Check out our previous post to see the first 7 chairs and details of our silent auction...  One thing I need to say is that my pictures do not do these chairs and our cool chair shelf justice.  THEY ARE WONDERFUL!!  Here are 7 more..

Such detail in this chair

Not everyone is lucky enough to have the gift of good health.  Our dear friend and Wade Creek House member Carrie is one of those that has not been so lucky.  Carrie has a rare incurable lung disease called lymphangioleiomyomatosis or LAM for short.  Being rare, monies allocated for research are small so each year, across the nation, members of the LAM community including patients and their friends and families host fundraisers to help raise money for research and patient support.  This is our SECOND ANNUAL CHAIRS FOR CHARITY FUNDRAISER.  Here you will find chairs created by local artists and supporters that are donated and then auctioned off (via silent auction) with 100% of the proceeds being sent to the LAM Foundation.

The chairs ARE NOW on display at The Wade Creek House with the silent auction June 7th.  If you are unable to attend June 7th, but would like to participate we have made it possible for you to submit an absentee bid.  On our form, you place your bid on the chair or chairs of your choice also listing what your maximum bid would be at the close of auction.  Example: Your initial bid is $25 but you would pay up to $45.  Using your anonymous number, we will bid $25 on your chair.  At 5pm on June 7th, if someone has beat your initial bid but it is still less than your $45 we will bump up your bid for you.  We bid in $5 increments.  Easy!!

Please join Carrie and the rest of the members on June 7st for our silent auction…    refreshments AND DOOR PRIZES will make this a wonderful day.  Above is a sampling of the chairs - not enough space for them all so will show you more soon.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands. one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.   Audrey Hepburn

Precious Gift

What an amazing last few days.  Our son and wife, had their first child... a baby girl.  What a precious gift we were all given.  It is truly remarkable how much love a heart can hold.  She is a beauty and I think when she is a bit older, she will give our two grandsons a run for their money...
                                                                    So true.......

GARDEN TIME!!  I have scaled back the size of the garden at The Wade Creek House.  It was 50 x 100 and hard to keep up.  So the chickens went in the middle, grass is finally filling in the back (more room for the Outdoor Vintage Markets) and we kept a little cutting garden up front along with a vegetable garden for the chickens.  The day before the rains came my kind husband rototilled and I got the seeds in.  With 4 days of rain and now the sun coming, I expect to see those seeds popping their heads up soon.

He does such a nice job!

The Wade Creek House bees are very happy.. will be even more so once the blooms begin.

Garden in!

We cherish the relationship we have with the family who lived and grew up in the house that is now The Wade Creek House.  We got another treat this weekend.  Jeannie Fussell (previously Jeannie McConkey) also lived in the house that is now The Wade Creek House.  In fact, it was Jeannie's Uncle Merle (Marshall) that actually built the house.  He did it with the help of Jeannie's dad and grandfather in the 40's.  Her Uncle Merle and Aunt Dorothy lived in the house until they moved to Dufur in the early 60's.  Jeannie lived in the house with her husband and 2 children after that.  Her grandparents had lived next door in a house that sat next to the old corner gas station.  That field is empty now and the old gas station is still there but vacant.   Merle still lives in Dufur, Dorothy passed away last year.  Merle thinks he may have some pictures -  Jeannie is hoping to find  them. I hope she gets lucky.   My husband Bill had noticed an unusual old brick in the field next door and we are thinking it must have been from Jeannie's grandparents home.  Where else could it have come from?  Jeannie took it as a keepsake.

So thank you Jeannie and John Fussell for sharing your day and your story.... keep in touch.

I couldn't decide what picture to use so I used  both .. 

It's fun to come home...... again.
