Thank You, White Elephant Sale Shoppers!

The 61st annual White Elephant Sale held on March 7 and 8, 2020 and the Preview Sale held January 26, 2020 raised over $2.4 million on behalf of the Oakland Museum of California, capping off another successful year for the Sale. Over the past six years, the White Elephant Sale—presented and organized by the Oakland Museum Women’s Board—has raised more than $2 million annually. A substantial portion of these proceeds will support future OMCA programs and exhibitions. 

Due to COVID-19, our warehouse is closed. We will be open for pickup of purchases from our March Sale somtime in June or July. Please continue to check our website and Facebook page for days and times you may come to collect your items. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
