Thank you for a spectacular 2015 WSCGSD!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 10, 2015

What a day it was – and now it’s history – the first 300+-sale West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day. (341 was the final total, after a few last-minute cancellations.)

Not only was it sunny … the temp hit 80. (Not until after the official closing bell at 3 pm, but it was warm enough by then – at one of the last sales we visited, in Highland Park around 2:30 pm, we spotted someone walking by with an umbrella.) THANK YOU for a great time. Here’s something to close with: Danny McMillin made a time-lapse video of his Alki sale:

Next WSCGSD is Saturday, May 14, 2016. We usually open in early April – so check back then! And enjoy some other neighborhoods’ garage-sale days in the meantime:

Because you’ll get thirsty on WSCGSD …

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 8, 2015

We’ve already mentioned that more than half a dozen sales promise lemonade. Here’s one more option, a Gatewood fundraiser for the earthquake-devastated people of Nepal:

Tagging onto WS Community Garage Sale Day tomorrow, kids from 5+ families in our neighborhood will be holding a bake sale / lemonade stand Saturday morning 9 am-noon to benefit Nepal SEEDS, a nonprofit organization working in villages in Nepal. Our friend and West Seattleite Cris Miller has been working with Nepal SEEDS for years and is on their board. They are in major fundraising mode to assist in earthquake relief and re-building in the villages they work in. Stop by for a treat and support a very worthy cause! The kids will be waving you down in the 7800 block of California Ave. SW, between Portland and Kenyon.

Now just TWO days to West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2015!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 7, 2015

Sunshine is still in the forecast – warm, too (high in the upper 70s) – so our tradition of perfect garage-saling weather continues. If you are somehow just finding out about this, Saturday, May 9th, is the day, 9 am-3 pm, 340+ sales of all sizes all over West Seattle!

Both the online map and printable map can be found here.

Lists we’ve published:
*Nonprofit/benefit sales
*Trivia from this year’s lineup
*Unusual items
*Memorable descriptions

Later today – block sales/multi-seller sites!

Also – for sellers and for people who might want the fun of shopping AND the fun of donation – our page listing “who’s accepting leftovers/donations” is now up and running. Wide array this time – dropoff, pickup, some open Sunday and beyond.

P.S. Any last-minute cancellations will be noted on the online map, and we will mention the sale #’s here too so that if you have printed out the downloadable version, you can scratch them off. So far, only two since the downloadable version went live – the online map is updated but for the printed version, please scratch out #42 and #219.
