White Elephant Sale 2017


Had to hit one of my favorite things, the Oakland Museum White Elephant Sale. It is a staple of my life once a year. Who knows what you might find:




















I didn't buy anything because I am trying to pare down but it was a great time just walking around.

  3. Looks like a lot of interesting items. Are these items from the museum and they're trying to reduce or is it a fundraiser with donated things? I like toe old sewing machines.

    1. It is all donated stuff and the funds go to the Oakland Museum.

  6. You have a lot of self-control, Patrick, not to buy anything! I love going to flea markets and that's what this looks like to me. Thanks for giving us a glimpse at some of the treasures. Always fun to visit your place, my friend!

  8. Patrick, You saw some really neat stuff. I love the old sewing machines! DH's late mother had her mother's sewing machine. It's still in his boyhood home. It would be neat to have it if I could find a place to put it in our house. :) What fun! Thanks for sharing. :)
