White Elephant Sale

The Oakland Museum Women's Board presents the 60th annual White Elephant Sale!

The 60th annual White Elephant Sale, the biggest and best rummage sale in Northern California, returns to Oakland March 2 and 3, 2019. Shoppers can get early access to items during the Preview Sale, which takes place on Sunday, January 27. With 20 selling departments, there's 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.

In 2018, the Sale raised over $2 million for the fourth year in a row to benefit the Oakland Museum of California. The Oakland Museum Women's Board has contributed over $22 million to the Oakland Museum of California. Annual contributions from the Women's Board support OMCA acquisitions, exhibitions, educational programs, and capital improvements.
