White Elephant Preview Sale




January 28, 2018

Calling all mega-shoppers: Get first dibs on Northern California’s biggest and best rummage sale! A special one-day preview shopping event of the legendary White Elephant Sale—an annual event organized and presented by the Oakland Museum Women’s Board—takes place on January 28, 2018, from 10 am to 4 pm.

The White Elephant Sale itself, now in its 59th year, returns on March 3 and 4, 2018, also from 10 am to 4 pm.

At both events, bargain hunters and serious collectors alike will find countless gently used treasures for sale in the Oakland Museum Women’s Board’s vast warehouse, located at 333 Lancaster Street. And with proceeds benefiting OMCA’s educational programs, galleries, collections, exhibits, and more, shoppers can take pride in knowing that their purchases are going to a worthy cause.

Tickets to the Preview Sale can be purchased in advance at the OMCA Store or by mail for $15, online for $16, or for $20 at the door on the day of the Preview Sale. Admission to the sale on March 3 and 4 is free. For more information, visit the White Elephant Sale site.
