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, priced from low-cost to an absolute steal.
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.
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.
