The White Elephant Sale is back and in person for 2022 with adaptations for the safety of our shoppers and volunteers.

At our spring 2022 warehouse sale, all shoppers must be
at least 12 years old, must show proof of full vaccination (includes a booster if eligible) and ID, and must wear masks at all times. The number of shoppers will be limited to allow for social distancing.

Shop the 2022 White Elephant Sale
for two years' worth of high-quality merchandise.

As Covid-19 continues to surge in our area,
we are going to delay putting live links on the website
to purchase tickets until the end of January. 
Please check back often for enhanced safety protocols 
during our sale days.
