ABC Wednesday: W is for White Elephant Sale (WES)

It's that time of year again.  The annual WES sale to benefit the Oakland Museum is approaching.  Seventeen departments manned by 1000 volunteers in a 96,000 square foot warehouse.  We sell all manner of fabulous items (at fabulous prices) that have been donated by a generous public.  It's the biggest and best rummage sale in Northern California.  The last Sunday in January is the Preview Sale which charges a fee to shoppers to get the first peek at the offerings of the year.  The first weekend in March is THE big sale that is free to the public.  Checkout the website for all pertinent information about dates, donations and how to buy preview tickets.  If you're in the area, come by and see me in the Linen Department.  Questions?  Email me.  To see other W posts go to ABC Wednesday, a fun meme to visit and participate in.

  3. There's only one problem here... I'm on the East Coast. Other than that, it sounds like a great event!

  4. Thanks for the heads up! Ever since I heard about the Elephant Sale several decades ago, I've wanted to attend one. Maybe 2011 will be my year! Merry Christmas!

  5. Oh, I SO want to go to that sale!! Do you suppose Virgin Atlantic would allow me to bring extra suitcases (plus a packing case or two) home with me? LOL!

    On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week!
