For over 25 years, Main Street Merchantile has been the largest antiques store in this national historic district and Antiques Capital of Oregon.  Our inventory is exciting and varied with some of the finest examples of Victoriana, lamps, pottery, glassware and you can always expect to find the unexpected!

John and Cindy and their knowledgeable staff are ready to assist you in the purchase of your items, whether it’s a single piece or a whole estate.


Aurora is a popular destination just 20 minutes from either Portland or Salem with easy freeway access at I-5 Exit 278, one exit north of the Woodburn Company Stores (the Northwest’s largest factory outlet center).  Plan to spend the whole day in Aurora as you shop 20 antiques and specialty shops in historic buildings, all located within walking distance of our store and the Old Aurora Colony Museum.  Enjoy many restaurant choices featuring homemade favorites.  For info:

Abundant lodging includes bed and breakfasts, national motels nearby, RV camping and the beautiful Champoeg State Park campground.
