The White Elephant Sale has been taking one person’s trash and recycling it into someone else’s treasure for more than 50 years.

The White Elephant Sale is Northern California’s biggest and best rummage sale. The Sale takes place in a 96,000-square-foot warehouse site at 333 Lancaster Street, near the Oakland Estuary.

Named one of San Francisco’s Top 100 Events by BizBash, the celebrated rummage sale includes 19 departments, offering a range of quality used goods, including furniture, artwork, household items, china, sporting goods, fine jewelry, Asian collectibles, tools, music, books, vintage and contemporary clothing.

Shoppers are advised to arrive early and wear comfortable shoes. A complimentary shuttle service from the Fruitvale BART to the WES warehouse will be provided for the January 29, Preview Sale and on the March 4 and 5 White Elephant Sale days.

Organized and presented by the Oakland Museum Women’s Board, the White Elephant Sale is made possible by donations from the public. For the past two years, the Sale raised over $2 million each year to support the Museum.
