OMCA 2022 White Elephant Sale

White Elephant SaleThe OMCA 2022 White Elephant Sale is happening in person this year and attendance is limited to 500 shoppers per day. This means they are already beginning to sell out. So, if you are interested in attending, get your tickets soon!

Known as the best and biggest rummage sale in Northern California, this year’s event includes even more opportunities to safely shop during the annual Bay Area tradition.

Featuring 19 departments with a wide range of quality goods, the White Elephant Sale proceeds directly benefit the Oakland Museum of California’s programming and exhibitions. The Sale is organized by the Oakland Museum Women’s Board, whose sole purpose has been to raise money to support OMCA since 1959.

This year, shoppers are in luck—additional sale dates have been added, and reservations will be required in advance in order to manage capacity.


  • In order to keep shoppers and volunteers safe, there are a few new guidelines to keep in mind before shopping the in-person sale.
  • Proof of vaccination required, including booster if eligible; shoppers must also wear a mask at all times
  • Guests 12 years of age and older are permitted to shop; children under 12 are not allowed at the warehouse this year
  • Reservations are required for all sale dates. Capacity is limited; please make your reservations in advance
  • This is a cashless event. Sales transactions by credit card or debit card will be accepted
