Oakland Museum White Elephant Sale 2015


One of my favorite things every year is the Oakland Museum White Elephant Sale. It is something that is pretty cool and a lot of fun. They have a lot of great stuff at great prices:















It was a great time. I just got some books and some DVD's. Nothing big.

  1. This is a totally cool sale. Love the purple table. I lived in SF for 15 years, and worked in Oakland for the last few, but I never knew about this. Too bad.
