Shorewood Streets of Sales ahead on June 7th

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 29, 2014

West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day seems to be the season-opener – since our big day on May 10th, we’ve already had the area’s longest-running event, in Greenwood, and now we’re looking ahead to June 7th in Shorewood. As announced:

The Shorewood Streets of garage sales is right around the corner on Saturday June 7th from 9 am-4 pm.

As usual the neighborhood will be filled with sales, deals and deal seekers. The different entrance points to the neighborhood will be lit up with large signs and balloons with maps available in boxes. For those more tech inclined we also have an online map that is live up the minute with sale locations. More people are joining in every day, we usually have around 50 sales!

Join us in Shorewood and support this 20+ year tradition! There is a reason the sale has keep strong for so long, great sellers and customers!

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.

And if you love shopping but don’t really need anything … we’ll have an option for you too – WestSide Baby is going to be out with a wish list of items you can shop for and then donate, same-day.

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!

2nd week of registration starts: Almost 100 sales!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 10, 2013

More than 95 sales are now on the list for the ninth annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day, coming up Saturday, May 11th. Registration will only be open for two more weeks, so you might as well commit now. One important note: If you have signed up, please be sure you have a receipt from PayPal as well as the WSCGSD confirmation note – our records so far show a few people have made it through the first part of the process but not the rest of the way – e-mail garagesale@westseattleblog.com if you’re not sure. Ready to sign up? Here’s the link!

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. First: The courtyard/parking lot area between Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (4410 California SW) and Ginomai art center is open for registration, according to Hotwire proprietor Lora Swift – e-mail her at info@hotwirecoffee.com to get a free space! 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. Whether you’ll be selling or shopping (or both), continue to watch for updates here and on the official WSCGSD Facebook page.. Thank you!

Thank you!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 13, 2012

13 hours past closing time and we’re not sure we’ve recovered yet from West Seattle Community Garage Sale 2012. We decided to cover it as more of a travelogue (see the story and photos here), weaving a few contributed photos in with pictures we took while stopping at a dozen-plus sites … may not sound like much out of 245 but we were on the road continuously for five hours, with WSB co-publisher Patrick Sand driving, and hopping out to take photos and say hi, while your editor here (Tracy Record) kept downloading photos, writing, and updating the story from the passenger seat. By 2 pm, even our backup power was out, and we needed a little sustenance too, so it was back to the barn. The post-sale reports have been fun to read, and it was fun to see that people were really were out and about browsing, buying, and best of all, mingling … while reading news on the Web (our main business) is generally a solitary pursuit, we do seek to support the community by promoting events and activities that get people out and about, interacting, and this certainly counts. Next year’s date – May 11th!

The 8th annual WS Community Garage Sale Day has arrived!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 12, 2012

It’s sunny, it’s perfect, and we wish you a terrific day. Especially if you are a seller, please send a photo of your sale if you can – we won’t get to anywhere near all of them during our photo runs – garagesale@westseattleblog.com – we like posting individual items here for posterity! (And include your sale #, please!)

One more time for people who just happen onto this site – the maps are here (note the link there to the PRINTABLE map and listings, as well as the online map you can use to pan, zoom, and click your way around – clicking any individual line on the right-side list OR any individual sale marker will bring up the “bubble” with its address and their short description). And sellers have been invited to post on the WSCGSD Facebook page – buyers looking for specific items too.

Have a great day!

A few updates for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2012

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 11, 2012

It’s West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day Eve! Tomorrow’s our day of shopping and selling all over the peninsula … A few logistical notes right now:

LATE CANCELLATIONS: If you have already printed a map, please scratch off sales #71, #72, #149, #201, #247. (While their numbers remain on the online map, you’ll see in the list on the right side of that map that they are now marked as CANCELED, in addition to a couple others that already were marked that way on the map.)

TWO HIGH POINT SALES ON SW BATAAN NOW PROPERLY LOCATED ON ONLINE MAP: Our map provider uses data from Google and Mapquest, and yet it still couldn’t place SW Bataan in High Point in the right place. Sale #159 pointed this out, and sale #147 is affected too. Bataan is between Graham and Morgan, and both sales are within 2 blocks of each other, 2800 and 3000 blocks.

OVERLAPPING MARKERS NOTE: On the printable map, we have topped the map-section pages with information about overlapping markers. We have one error in this information – on page 3, it is correct that sale #57′s marker is under #125, but that is NOT because they’re both at Hotwire – #125 is the group sale at Hotwire but #57 is another big sale a couple doors down at the West Seattle Eagles’ aerie. The listing information for #57 in the text pages (it’s on page 7, second column) is correct, and on the online map too. (Note that they’re grilling burgers and hot dogs!) … Also, please note that marker #190 is behind #232.

Sorry for the glitches – a few are unavoidable, and we try to keep it to a few – get ready for a great day tomorrow!

ADDED LATE FRIDAY NIGHT: Sale 71 just canceled.

Update: The printable map is available now too! Plus, Seattle Times showcases WSCGSD

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 6, 2012

PRINTABLE MAP: It’s ready! Just finished the 12-page PDF – you can get it here, and it’s also linked from the WSCGSD page on our main site.

SEATTLE TIMES SHOWCASE: West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day is the lead story on the “Around the Sound” page in today’s Times, distributed around the region, just one of many ways we’re getting the word out beyond West Seattle – since we’d love to see LOTS of visitors come shop our sales, and (later) visit our restaurants, bars, and shops:

And best of all, the forecast calls for sun on Saturday. Here’s hoping!

West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day’s ‘leftovers’ partner is part of GiveBIG today

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 2, 2012

Today (Wednesday, May 2nd) is the annual GiveBIG donate-a-thon – and while we have published a list of local participants on our main site, West Seattle Blog, we did want to give a special shoutout to Northwest Center, which is the official “leftovers partner” for Garage Sale Day, and is based in southwest South Park, along West Marginal Way South. (Garage Sale Day participants will get info in the next few days about how to work with NW Center after WSCCGSD if you choose.) Before 11:59 pm tonight, your donation will stretch further, thanks to a “stretch pool” from sponsors of GiveBIG’s coordinating organization The Seattle Foundation, as long as you donate through the specific links on TSF’s site – here’s the one for NW Center.

Six days left to register for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2012

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 19, 2012

More than 120 sales are now on the map for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2012 – the six hours (9 am-3 pm the second Saturday of May, garagesaledaysmalllog5.jpgwhich this year is May 12th) when our peninsula turns into Garage/Yard/Rummage Sale Paradise. We are now six days away from the official registration deadline – 11:59 pm next Wednesday (April 25th). That cutoff gives us just enough time to make the maps (which will be ready a week before WSCGSD) and launch the final round of promotion with something resembling an accurate total.

**Registration form’s here**

And here are two more notes:
**NOT ENOUGH ROOM OR STUFF FOR YOUR OWN SALE? Hotwire Online Coffeehouse and C & P Coffee Company (both WSB sponsors) are once again offering courtyard/yard space for small individual sellers. Inquire at either coffee shop (4410 California is Hotwire, 5612 California is C&P) or by e-mail – info@hotwirecoffee.com or candp@comcast.net.

**DON’T WANT TO SELL, BUT HAVE STUFF SOMEONE MIGHT WANT TO SELL? The Rainbow Girls will be on the map again this year, and looking for donations:

Cleaning out your closets? West Seattle #18 International Order of the Rainbow for Girls is seeking donations for our third annual garage sale Saturday, May 12th, 2012. If you have any small working appliances, furniture in good or better condition, tools and other household items that you would like to donate, please call Natalee Vroman 206-399-7748 or Jan Hunter 206-849-7906 and we will be happy to come and pick them up!
