Returning in 2025


The sale is back and bigger than ever. Order your tickets for admission now and get ready to shop when our doors open. The White Elephant Sale is Northern California's oldest and largest rummage sale.

Find a curated selection of one-of-a-kind treasures


Get the rush of adrenaline from snagging that one-of-a-kind item you can't find anywhere else. Over the course of an entire year, our volunteers collect, sort, and repair a massive selection of donated goods prices so you can score amazing deals.

Reduce your carbon footprint


We do more than save thousands of items from the landfill: we connect generations of families to everything from school supplies and kids' first bikes to prom dresses, jewelry, and estate antiques at prices you can afford.

Support your Oakland Museum of California


Produced by the Oakland Museum Women's Board, the White Elephant Sale has supported the Oakland Museum of California’s educational programs, exhibitions, and marketing initiatives for over 60 years with contributions totaling more than $30 million.

About the Oakland Museum Women's Board


The Oakland Museum Women's Board was organized in 1955 as a support group of The Oakland Museum Association (est. 1953). By 1965, the White Elephant Sale had become a major fundraiser to underwrite the Oakland Museum of California’s educational programs, exhibitions and marketing. With nearly 1000 volunteers contributing countless hours to sell millions of donated items, the Women's Board has raised more than $30 million over 60 years in support of the Oakland Museum of California.
