Thank you!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 13, 2017

Just a quick word of thanks, as we all continue recovering from a West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day that was far sunnier than we expected (among other attributes) … thanks for being part of it, thanks for sharing photos, updates, and thanks for taking the time to meet your neighbors from far and near who stopped by.

Book drive in conjunction with West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2017

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 11, 2017

Today we’re spotlighting the donation drives that have been organized in connection with West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day this year. First: A book drive to benefit schools:

One of the easiest ways to motivate students to read and learn is to have books with topics that kids are excited about reading and learning from! Your donated books will make a difference! Over the past three years, West Seattle schools received more than 5,000 books for motivating and exciting students as an important part of education.

We will donate religious-theme books to religious schools in West Seattle, and elderly books to Providence. We don’t want violent or sexual-themed books.

West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day is a tremendous source of books. We are asking people who have left-over books from their yard sale this May 13th (as well as anyone who has excess books), to please donate your books to West Seattle schools. And for those who donated in the past, Thank you!

You can drop off books at any of these locations through May 26th.

A. West Seattle schools (Monday thru Friday only):

1. Denny International Middle School, 2601 SW Kenyon St, 252-9000. Drop off at the front desk, from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Attention: Librarian (Denny will take books all year.)

2. Sanislo Elementary, 1812 SW Myrtle St, 952-8320. Drop off at the front desk from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm. Attention:Kim

B. West Seattle Businesses:

1. We will have a truck marked with a large sign “Donate Books to West Seattle Schools” in the West Seattle Junction near the Northwest Center truck (off 44th SW between Alaska and Edmunds) from 2 to 6 PM on May 13th only.

Note: We will have 40 coupons good for up to 4 free Bowling Games at Roxbury Lanes for anyone who donates 20 or more hard-cover books.

2. Roxbury Bowling Lanes, 2823 SW Roxbury, 206-935-7400, from 11 AM to 7 PM. … Note: Roxbury Lanes, as part of its support for the Seattle community, will give a certificate good for 4 free bowling games for any book donation over 20 hardcover books.

3. Hotwire Online Coffeehouse, 4410 California Avenue SW … 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 hardcover books.

We want to thank Denny Principal Jeff Clark, Denny Librarian Jeff Treistman, and Dearborn Librarian Craig Seasholes (formerly at Sanislo Elem) for their efforts to distribute books to their students. For further info, call Mr. Potratz at 932-3007.

MAP DAY EVE! And other West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2017 updates

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 5, 2017

9:08 PM MAY 5th: It’s Friday night and tomorrow’s the second-biggest day of West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day season – the day the map goes public! We’re in the final stages of working on it tonight so we’re expecting to have it ready and available around noon Saturday (May 6th) – watch for the announcement here and on our partner site West Seattle Blog, where the main WSCGSD page with the online map, and the downloadable/printable map and listings, will also be linked from our navigation bar/menu when it’s ready.

If you’re a seller, the “packet” is going out tonight. But this site is the main info hub – we’re also working on the AFTER THE SALE tab, with info from the local nonprofits who are interested in any leftovers you might have. But before we get that far ahead, everyone think SUNSHINE! for Saturday, May 13th. We know more than 300 sellers will be spending this weekend readying wares from crystal chandeliers to SCUBA gear to a “’60s Coke machine” to “nerdy gifts” to a “1962 Aloha trailer” to a surfboard, a sailboat, sleds …

9:36 AM SATURDAY: Still on track for the maps in the noon vicinity (or shortly thereafter)!

Another reminder about Stamp Out Hunger on West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 2, 2017

The second Saturday in May is not only West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day – it’s also the coast-to-coast food drive headed up by US Postal Service letter carriers, Stamp Out Hunger, and that goes for this year’s big day – May 13th – too.

Every year we joyfully remind WSCGSD sellers and shoppers to put out their donations by their mailbox (or door if that’s how/where you get mail) before they get going for the day – many residences get special bags earlier in the week, courtesy of the letter carriers, but if you don’t, you can still set out your donation in a bag of your choice. We do it every year too, before we head out to photograph some of the sales for ongoing all-day coverage.

Meantime, WSCGSD is just 11 days away and you’ll find the maps and list of sales linked here (and on our parent site West Seattle Blog) on Saturday – we’re continuing to work on them right now!

2017 REGISTRATION: West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day signup time!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 5, 2017

As promised, we have opened registration for this year’s West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day – coming up on Saturday, May 13, 2017, 9 am-3 pm (you can start your sale early and/or late but that six-hour window is the “official” window for all). This is the 13th annual WSCGSD!

If you’re planning a sale, here’s where to go to register – any time you’re ready (signups will continue for about three weeks; we usually don’t set the exact end date until we see how things are going). Same classifications and fees as the 10 years we’ve been coordinating this. Before you register, be ready with your up-to-20-word sale listing – think about what you’re selling that’s most popular and/or most unusual. Any questions, garagesale@westseattleblog.com or our 24/7 hotline at 206-293-6302. We’ll be updating here and on WSB (including any multi-seller sites that offer space for people who have small sales/no place to host a sale – if your venue is planning on that, please let us know ASAP)!

WEST SEATTLE COMMUNITY GARAGE SALE DAY 2017: Registration soon!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on March 24, 2017

If you’re here looking for information on West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2017 – good news! As always, the big day is the second Saturday in May, and this year, that’s Saturday, May 13, 2017. We always open registration in early April, and for this year, we’ve set the date – April 5th. Probably in the afternoon or evening, so when we’re ready to get going, we’ll post the link here and on our main site, West Seattle Blog. In the meantime, start thinking about the 20 words you’ll use to highlight your sale. Unusual item(s)? Popular item(s)? Offering refreshments? Catchy name for the sale? Or … ?

ABOUT WSCGSD: This will be the 13th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day – tenth one coordinated by WSB, after its founders at a community-connection nonprofit called Megawatt presented it for the first three years, then deciding to disband and seeking someone else to take it over. It’s not one big sale, but rather many sales of all sizes, all over the peninsula, depending on who signs up and where they are – individual homes and apartments, block sales, schools, nonprofits, businesses, etc. The official hours are 9 am-3 pm, but you can start early and/or end late (and if you do, put it in your sale ad), as long as you are open those six hours that we promote for all sales. All the registered sellers’ information and locations goes into a map package that we make available one week before WSCGSD so you can start planning!

Thanks for being part of West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2016!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 15, 2016

Once again this year, we can wrap up WSCGSD with a participant-made time lapse … in this case, Sale #59, a carport sale in Fauntleroy. We hope you had some fun, despite the rain, the first time we’ve had a drop of precipitation on WSCGSD since our first year presenting it, 2008, when a shower moved through around 8 am and then made way for dryness. Guess the odds were going to catch up sooner or later. See our as-it-happened coverage here on WSB … and mark your calendar for May 13, 2017, second Saturday in May, as always, with registration opening in early April and lasting most of the month.

ONE DAY TO GO! West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2016 is tomorrow

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 13, 2016

Happy Friday – we are now one day away from West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2016, 9 am-3 pm Saturday, May 14th.

Tomorrow might not be the bright sunny WSCGSD we have been used to in recent years – though today we’re looking at another record high temperature – but currently, it looks like the showers will hold off until later in the day. (We’re hoping for post-4 pm.)

If there are any last-minute cancellations/changes, we’ll have them atop this site as well as the map page on WSB, so check there first thing in the morning. That’s also where we’re linking our ongoing previews, and planning on a few more before the day is out.

Whether you’re selling or shopping – good luck and have fun!

330+ sales for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2016!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 28, 2016

Lots of sales signed up at the last minute before registration closed last night (Wednesday, April 27) just before midnight – so it’s going to be another spectacular West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day of selling, shopping, and meeting your neighbors. 9 am-3 pm Saturday, May 14th … the map will be out a week ahead of time … but what we’ll be working on later today (Thursday) is checking the list of sellers and, within a day or so, contacting anyone for whom we have questions (fee not paid, missing “ad” text, that sort of thing), so if you’ve signed up your sale, PLEASE keep an eye on the e-mail address you used, as we have to get this part of the process locked down within a few days. (And if you have a question, please e-mail us at garagesale@westseattleblog.com.) Thank you! Just 16 days to go!
