Shake Off that Cabin Fever in Aurora!

We can’t produce a rainbow over Aurora every day, but rain never keeps our patrons away! Make your projects unique with the help of Aurora Mills Architectural Salvage.

Pull out the slicker or bring the umbrella and give your winter a lift with a day in Aurora!  Our 24 shops are quite close together and you can park your car for the day and easily walk to most of them.

Just 25 minutes from Portland or Salem, I-5 Exit 278 or do a ‘river watch’ (so far so good) by coming on old Hwy 99E from Oregon City or up from Salem.

Plan on having lunch here at one of our popular eateries – from old style burgers with all the trimmings, to hearty soups, light salads or Mediterranean styled sandwiches.  Linger over a glass of local wine or sample hazelnut candy at the candy factory.  Have a sweet tooth?  Our bakery is open 7 days a week or try a piece of Marionberry pie at one of the cafes.

Historic Aurora is known for its unrivaled variety of antiques and vintage goods, from furniture to collectible treasures and was recently listed as tops in Oregon and one of the best 50 antiques destinations in the USA by House Beautiful and Country Living magazines!

Authentic antiques, vintage decor and a lot of eye candy on three floors at Main Street Merchantile.

 

 

“Every day in Aurora is an antique show!”

Shops open between 10-11am and close at 5pm.  Many are open 7 days a week.
