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!

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!
