3 days and counting – 3 updates!

*The maps have gone to the printer! Actually, the copier. The format is four double-sided sheets, stapled, with three “region” maps/lists — north of SW Brandon, between SW Brandon and SW Roxbury, and south of SW Roxbury. If you can print your own from this site – we will have the PDF file posted for download as well as a clickable version that you can use to browse the sale information online ahead of time – it’ll be a big help. We are printing 1,000 for starters, certainly ready and willing to print more, but the more people who print their own, the more that leaves for the noncomputer-connected folks. The list of pickup spots (starting tomorrow morning, which is also when we’ll post the map links here and on West Seattle Blog) is on this page.
*The prizes are confirmed! Two West Seattle Blog sponsors have stepped up – Hotwire Coffee with a $40 coffee card, Illusions Hair Design with a haircut. Any preferences which contest gets which prize? Leave a comment! The contests are: Most Unusual Item (open to shoppers and sellers), Best Sign (open to sellers). Send photos by Monday morning to firstname.lastname@example.org – winners will be announced Monday night.
*Sellers: In addition to the Northwest Center opportunities for donating leftover items via pickup or dropoff, we have one more option for handling some leftovers – as part of the disaster preparedness campaign we’re helping with, local organizers have put together a list of items needed for neighborhood kits, and are hoping that anyone who finds themselves with these items left over after Garage Sale Day can donate them. We will publish the list in a separate post later today, just wanted to get you thinking about it.
