Endless shelves of baskets, lines of dressers, bins of scarves and massive tables overfilled with shoes. Sounds like heaven, right? Well, I found heaven on earth and that is the White Elephant Sale in Oakland, CA.

For years, my family and I make the ‘preview’ sale benefiting the Oakland Museum OUR event of the year. We count down the days from the 1st of the year to the sale weekend. We strategize on who’s going to which department first and study the map of the 96,000 square foot warehouse to be sure we know where each department is. Do I go to the shoe department first? Accessories? Kitchen? Books? Art? Brick-a-Brack?? Agh!! So many options!!

I was told not to share the sale on my blog so I wouldn’t ‘giveaway the secret’. Well, seeing how the line to get in is well over 1,000 ppl deep, I don’t think it’s too much of a secret anymore… so I wanted to share the amazingness with all of you!

Here’s a look at the experience:
