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!!

Our friend Annette...

was taught to make these great Native American baskets about 40 years ago from a Cherokee Indian. As the younger generation has not continued this art/craft,  Annette said it is becoming a lost art.  It is called "basket coiling."  The baskets were originally made by the men and they would take raffia and wrap over vines.  They would put sap inside and cook in them each day.  

Annette is a talented retired art teacher who we met at our Estacada Farmer's Market.  She is often asked to teach a class on how to make these beautiful baskets and we feel lucky that she will teach a class with us.  On Sunday, August 2 and again on Sunday, August 9th from 1p - 3p she will walk us through the process.  The class takes two sessions to complete.



Cost is $35 if you purchase your own supplies and $40 if you only bring a skein of yarn, color of your choice... Annette can get the rest.  Supplies include 1/4 inch rope (50 feet makes 2 baskets), a metal large eye embroidery needle (eye big enough for yarn), a skein of yarn and scissors. 

Limited class size so call today to reserve your space...   503-630-7556.

Being creative is not a hobby, it's a way of life...
