Looking for items from different eras?
Stop by the Vintage Outdoor Market from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10, at Wade Creek House Antiques, 664 N.W. Wade St.
"It's packed with lots of vintage vendors," said Becky McFarland of Wade Creek House Antiques, noting that the event will feature more than 70 sellers. "It's not hard to shop. It's too easy."
The day will also include live music from Rick and Barb and Friends, and food from Trails End Kettle Korn, the Weiner Wagon, The Mason Jar and Vitality Juice Company. The Estacada Farmers Market will also take place on the property, offering shoppers fresh produce and other finds.
Each year, organizers of the outdoor market offer a free booth at the event to a nonprofit organization. This year, the Non-Commissioned Officers of America Association will be in attendance.
McFarland noted that people attend the outdoor markets, which are in their 11th year, from as far away as Olympia, Wash., and the Oregon Coast.
"It's not just local people," McFarland said, estimating that the gatherings draw in more than 100 attendees. "It's a great chance for all of these people to visit our town."
While browsing wares during previous years, McFarland has found everything from tables and chairs to a wool military blanket. At an earlier market in June, her finds included a double tub set where she's growing flowers.
She appreciates the items available at the vintage outdoor markets.
"It's not just one person shopping," she said, referencing the event's many vendors. "One couple was selling their grandfather's estate, other people just like to
collect. There are so many different interests and sources. It makes for a great market."
