White Elephant Sale & Auction

Auction, Yard Sale, and Raffle — something for everyone!  Some of the best French Quarter businesses, restaurants, hotels, art galleries, and shops donate gift certificates and auction items for this event.  The yard sale items are all donations from members and friends of the Patio Planters of the Vieux Carré, and include jewelry, books, clothing, and plants.  Baskets of Cheer full of wine and spirits are raffled off throughout the day.  This November fundraiser take splace at the corner of Royal and St. Philip Streets [721 St. Philip] in the parking lot of the Little Red School House in the French Quarter.  Donations and auction items are accepted year-round by the Patio Planters of the Vieux Carré .  Admission:  Free and open to the public.

Our next White Elephant Sale begins on Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 10:00 a.m., and the Auction begins at 12:00 noon.  We look forward each year to selling a huge collection from our generous donors. If you have donations or want to buy raffle tickets for the Baskets of Cheer, please do not hesitate to contact us at whiteelephant@patioplanters.org. Last minute donations are happily accepted, and the top fifteen donors of auction items will receive an ad placed in the Caroling in Jackson Square keepsake song book.


Winners of the Patio Planters contest for the best Halloween decorations in the French Quarter will be announced and awarded at this event.
