The White Elephant Sale is Northern California’s biggest and best rummage sale. The Sale takes place in a 96,000-square-foot warehouse site at 333 Lancaster Street, near the Oakland Estuary. With something for everyone, the Sale features an extensive array of quality used men's, women’s and children’s clothing, jewelry, books, tools, furniture, household goods, sporting equipment and more. Organized and presented by the Oakland Museum Women’s Board, the White Elephant Sale is made possible by donations from the public.
