Everyone Had a Great Time!

We're a bit late, but people have been asking..... our first Pop-Up Shop went fabulously. Lots of people, lots of new faces, made it out to Orlean, many with out-of-town guests and relatives in tow. We sold lots of great stuff, the consignors were happy....and, we had a blast. Thanks to Chef Victor McLawhorn at The Orlean Market for all the free hot apple cider, donuts, fresh pastries and fruit every morning for our happy shoppers.

SPRING POP-UP is being planned as I write. It will be a 'By Invitation Only' event, so when you get an email asking if you'd be interested in attending, get back to us fast. Invitations will be limited. These events are a lot of extra work and take time to plan. Don't worry, though...you'll be the first to get all the details!

Are You Ready for a Fresh, Sleek White Elephant?

After more than 20 years in our Town Center location in Warrenton, it's time for change!

October 1st our Warrenton store will move and open in a new, more conveniently located space on Blackwell Road .(We continue to accept consignments at our current location).  Although the new store has a bit less floor space, you'll still be able to browse an ever-changing variety of 'the best' of what our consignors bring to us.

You'll still be able to consign your own unwanted 'white elephants' as always, but with a few changes in what we can accept. 

We'll still be accepting consignments at our current location up until the day we move. Consignor items will be transfered carefully by our professional movers to the new location.

Stay tuned! We are in the midst of executing the move and planning the first two sales events. To keep up with all the great changes - simply subscribe to our mailing list.

Thank you for being a loyal White Elephant customer. We hope you are excited as we are about the upcoming changes; and, that the new, improved White Elephant will give you even more reasons to shop and consign with us!

So. Here's some help. Happy isn't external, it's internal isn't it?
