West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2014: What a day!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 11, 2014

The sun came out just in time and stayed out for most of the day (even when the clouds moved in, they did NOT rain on us) … thanks for being part of the 10th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day. Every year there seems to be a photo epitomizing the quirky joy of garage-saling on the big day, and this one came in via Twitter:

Next WSCGSD – May 9, 2015. From time to time inbetween sale days, we’ll update this page with info on other sale days (Greenwood has theirs next Saturday, May 17th, for example). We’ll also be checking in the week ahead to see how generous sellers and shoppers were with their post-sale donations. Thanks again!

Yard Sale Bingo: ‘The Youngstown Crew’ shares their game

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 10, 2014

Late last night, continuing to get ready for today’s West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day (9 am-3 pm, find the maps here), we received this note:

Each year, we play “West Seattle Yard Sale Bingo” and people we meet love the bingo cards we make. I thought I’d send along photos of our yard sale bingo cards in case anyone else wants to print them and play along.

Five separate cards are attached. Items are repeated on different cards, so our rules are:

1. You may not mark an item on your bingo card unless someone else in the group sees the item to verify.

2. Only the first person to spot the item may mark it on their card.

3. Only one item per yard sale counts: for instance “martini glass” appears on two cards, but only the first person to call it gets to mark it, even if there is more than one martini glass at the yard sale.

Hope we have good weather!

Best,

The Youngstown yardsale bingo crew
Joe, Karen, David, and Erin

If you’d like to play along, here are the five cards:

Hours away! West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day is almost here

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 9, 2014

We’ve been watching the forecast all day … and right now it’s looking dry. Might not be the brilliant sunshine of the past few West Seattle Community Garage Sale Days, but hey, with so much rain this year, just having it take a break until oh, say, Saturday evening, will be great.

One more reminder that you can find the maps here – note there have been a couple last-minute cancellations, still leaving us with 282 sales as of this writing, biggest WSCGSD yet! Remember you can search the online map (follow that link) by clicking the blue word “Search” near the top right, and then using the dropdown (which defaults to “name”) to choose “description,” entering your search term(s), and then looking for a list of sales alongside the map that have what you want!

Another option for donations during/after WSCGSD

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 8, 2014

The Shop ‘n’ Shop Thrift Shop below the Senior Center of West Seattle wants you to know:

During and after the West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day, the West Seattle Senior Center’s Stop n Shop Thrift store will be taking donations of any unwanted and unsold garage sale merchandise during extended business hours of 10-7 pm. The Stop n Shop Thrift shop will have extra volunteers on staff to help you unload your unsold items so you don’t have to drag them back into your homes! All proceeds from donated items help to fund the Senior Center’s many wonderful programs and opportunities for our local seniors. Please consider us before you put all that unwanted stuff back into your garage. Just pull up out front or back, we’ll do all the rest. Thank you!

Out back would be the alley running south of Oregon between California and 42nd.

One week to West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day! See the map here later today; book donation drive already under way

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 3, 2014

One week from now, hundreds will be selling, thousands will be shopping, from Duwamish Head to Brace Point to White Center to Highland Park, on the 10th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day. As promised, you’ll be able to see the map here later today – and it will include the sale numbers, so sellers can start telling everyone they know to come see them at sale # (etc.). We’re also e-mailing the “packets” to sellers this morning, with various info, and we’re post-office-bound with hard-copy packets for the handful of the sellers who requested that version. 

WSCGSD has also come to be a day of generosity, as sellers donate unsold/unwanted items to nonprofits, including longtime official WSCGSD partner Northwest Center and recently added partner WestSide Baby, among others. New this year, a book drive for local schools, spearheaded by Denny International Middle School – and book dropoffs are under way even now – here’s a message from Denny’s principal Jeff Clark:

<blockquote>Motivating and exciting students is an important part of education at Denny International Middle School and the other schools in West Seattle. One of the easiest ways to motivate students to read is to have books they are excited about reading. We are seeking donated books to help us to match each student to many appropriately-leveled high-interest books. Your book donation would help us with our efforts.

How You Can Help: You can drop off books at any of these locations:

1. We will have a truck marked Denny Middle School in the West Seattle Junction across from Junction True Value from 3 to 6 PM on May 10th.

2. Hotwire Coffee – 4410 California Avenue SE, any time during open hours thru May 18th . … Note: Hotwire Coffee, as part of its support for the West Seattle community, will give a certificate good for $1 off any purchase at Hotwire to the first 25 people who drop off 10 or more books.

3. Bank of America, West Seattle Branch, 4001 SW Alaska St, 358-2230, from 10-6 M-F, Sat 10-1, thru May 18th.

4. Roxbury Bowling Lanes, 2823 Roxbury St, 935-7400, from 11 AM to 7 PM, thru Sunday, May 18th … Note: Roxbury Lanes, as part of its support for the Seattle community, will give a certificate good for two people for two free games of bowling for any book donation over 20 books.

5. Denny International Middle School, 2601 SW Kenyon St, 252-9000. Drop off at the front desk, from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM Monday to Friday, thru Friday, May 16th.

Some books may be more suitable for older or younger readers. We plan to sort the donated books and find appropriate places for them, including local elementary schools, Chief Sealth International High School, and the West Seattle Senior Center.

Thank you very much for you book donations to help the scholars of West Seattle Schools!</blockquote>

This information is also in the packet going to sellers and will be mentioned on the map pages too, here and on WSB.

Counting down to West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2014! And a message for sellers

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 28, 2014

Registration is closed and it looks like we’ll have about 280 sales for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2014 – maybe more, but we’re trying right now to reach more than a dozen people who went halfway through the registration process but didn’t finish it via PayPal. Without a complete registration, you won’t be on the map – so please make sure you have an e-mail receipt from PayPal, and if you don’t, please e-mail us ASAP – garagesale@westseattleblog.com. Also check your mailbox; we sent notes over the weekend to everyone for whom we don’t have a PP receipt. If you changed your mind mid-registration, no problem, but it would be great if you let us know.

Now, a bit about the lineup: The heart of West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day is the web of individual sales all over the peninsula – more than 250!!! Beyond that, we have the group sites – Hotwire/Ginomai in The Junction, C & P Coffee to the south.

And we also have nonprofits participating including:

*Log House Museum on Alki

*Delridge Grocery Co-op

*Scout Troop 284 at West Seattle Veterans’ Center in The Triangle

*West Seattle High School in Admiral

*Lincoln Park P-Patch sale in Fauntleroy

*Masonic Family group sale in The Triangle

*West Seattle Eagles sale in The Junction

*The Taproot School sale in Fauntleroy

*Straight Blast Gym sale (scholarship-fund benefit) in Delridge

*SSC plant sale benefiting the horticulture program (on Puget Ridge)

*Sale benefiting Chamwino Connect, in Sunrise Heights

Sale day, again, is Saturday, May 10th, 9 am-3 pm. (Some sales may choose to start earlier and/or end later, but no late starts or early ends, please .) We are in the mapmaking process currently and if all goes well, we’ll link to the online/printable maps here and on West Seattle Blog, starting next Saturday, since our goal is always to get the map out a week in advance.

With so many sales, we are advertising/promoting WSCGSD all over the region, but it also helps if you make sure your friends/relatives/co-workers know that this is THE day to come to West Seattle, shop the sales, visit local businesses while you’re here, sightsee, have a great day.

More previews to come – including the “shopping list” for WestSide Baby, a request for book donations for students, and more.

Countdown to registration for 2014! And other notes

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on March 28, 2014

We’re still on track to start signups Monday (March 31st) for the 10th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day. Time TBA – we’re hoping by noontime, but sometimes it takes until evening to get the form bugs worked out. When we’re ready, we’ll have the link here and on West Seattle Blog. Two other notes:

Lora Swift of Hotwire Online Coffeehouse says they’ll have a group sale site again this year for those who don’t have enough stuff and/or enough room for a sale of their own. Sign up through Hotwire starting Monday.

In case you want to share photos and updates while enjoying WSCGSD as either a shopper or a seller (or maybe both!), we are going to use a social-media hashtag this year – Twitter and Instagram primarily, but since Facebook has stuck a toe into the hashtag waters, you can try there too. It’ll be #wsgaragesale … we’ll see how it goes.

P.S. Big sale in West Seattle THIS WEEKEND – benefiting South Seattle Community College Preschools – a consignment sale of kids’ items, with 100-plus participants, 9 am-1 pm Saturday (March 29th) at the VFW Hall in The Triangle (36th/Alaska).

Of course we hope that it’s another wildly successful WSCGSD and that you sell every last item you put out. But in case you don’t: For the 9th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day this Saturday (5/11/2013), three nonprofits have volunteered to accept dropoffs during and after the later hours of the sale, with special sites and hours. (And, we’ve added a school looking for books.) Here’s who, where – and what they are looking for:

‘Printable’ list of 2013 West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day’s 280 sales now available!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 7, 2013

Sorry it took a little longer than we had expected, but we now have the “printable” list of sales, with map slices for reference, available for perusal/download/etc. Here’s the direct link – if you’re printing, consider doing it double-sided if you can, because it’s a 14-page PDF – cover page, 7 pages of sale listings, 6 pages of map sections (had to break it up so there weren’t too many markers overlapping). And again, you can find the online version of the map – clickable, zoomable, and it works well with your smartphone too – by going here.

Online version of the 2013 West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day map IS LIVE!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 4, 2013

SATURDAY MORNING: It’ll have its own page here on the WSCGSD site in a bit, but for starters, find the ONLINE version of the map on our parent site West Seattle Blog by going here. Please note a few things (all also mentioned on the map page):

*If you are a seller, your official “number” is the one you see on the map/list – helpful so you can tell people, for shorthand, “Come see us – we’re sale #xx”

*To get the online map in a mobile-friendly version, use this link with your phone’s browser – you can even get the list full-phone-screen and click on individual sales for the address, description, and directions (probably best deployed if you head out next Saturday with a list of which sale numbers you most want to check out!).

The printable map/list will be ready this weekend too, but we always get the online/clickable version out first. Happy Garage Sale Day planning! Questions? garagesale@westseattleblog.com

SUNDAY NIGHT P.S. Our map software provider is working on an issue with the printable appearance of the map, so that version is still some hours away. The sale numbers and descriptions are the same as on the online map – it has ALL the information – only difference is that it is not configured to print well, so that’s why we create a separate, multipage-PDF version as a “packet” of info you can take along if you choose. Thanks for your patience!

11 days and counting down! West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2013 updates

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 30, 2013

Excited yet?

Only eleven days till Saturday, May 11th, with a record-setting 280 sales getting ready for the 9th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day.

A few updates:

*If you are a last-minute would-be participant looking for a group site, we now have three – the VFW Hall in The Triangle has some room at $5 donation/table. Not sure about room at the Hotwire Coffee and C & P Coffee group sites (we’ll be asking in a day or two) – check in with them to find out.

*This year, we have two partners for sellers to donate any leftovers – WestSide Baby and Northwest Center. WS Baby will have special dropoff spots, and NW Center as always is extending its Junction truck hours that day. Watch for full details and locations in a few days.

*That info will be in the “packet” for sellers that we will e-mail by week’s end, along with other assorted notes, plus the template for you to print your “official participant” sign.

*And whether you’re shopping or selling, please include Stamp Out Hunger in your plans – every year, this door-to-door food drive is the same day as WSCGSD (second Saturday in May), so just put your bag of donated nonperishable food out by your mailbox or door (if that’s where you get your USPS mail) first thing that morning!

As for us, mapmaking mode continues for a few more days. WSCGSD questions? E-mail garagesale@westseattleblog.com – thank you!

280 sales – and a new post-sale partner

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 26, 2013

Saturday marks two weeks until West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2013, and we almost have the final count – looks like a record: About 280 sales! We’re finalizing the list for the map, and sending notes to people who didn’t finish the registration process, to make sure they really do intend to have a sale. We also are happy to announce that WestSide Baby is going to be a post-sale partner this year – if sellers wind up with any leftover items on the WS Baby needs/wish list, there will be three drop-off spots in West Seattle, plus later hours at WS Baby HQ in White Center, on sale day. Stand by for details on that later this weekend – the countdown is on!

Not enough room for your own sale? The two coffeehouses that usually offer a bit of individual space (both WSB sponsors) are doing it again.

Lora says she will follow up as May 11th gets closer, with a PDF map of the courtyard/lot showing where you’ll be. Meantime, C & P Coffee Company also is participating again – check in at the shop if you’re interested in selling there.
