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!

2016 WSCGSD registration is under way!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 4, 2016

With just under six weeks until the 12th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day on May 14th, you can register your sale now!

The form is here.

If you’ve been part of WSCGSD in past years – we haven’t changed anything except expanding the word limit for your listing on the map to 20 words – the field in the online version has lots of room, but the printable/downloadable PDF is the reason we need to set a limit. The fees are the same as they’ve been since we took over WSCGSD in 2008; they cover our production and promotion costs (and anything left over supports parent site West Seattle Blog‘s ongoing operations as West Seattle’s 24/7 news source).

*Sale day is Saturday, May 14, 2016.

*Official sale hours: 9 am-3 pm, but if you want to start yours earlier/end it later, that’s up to you – you can say that in your “ad” text (but no late starts/early ends, though, it’s important to cover the official time period – thanks!).

*Registration gets you on the map, which is published here and on West Seattle Blog – as well as promoted/advertised regionally and in our social-media channels – with clickable and printable (PDF) versions. The map is ready a week in advance and assigns each sale a number, which you can use for cross-reference and for your own promotion (“come see us, we’re sale #33!”), etc.

*Same 3 sale categories: Individual, Organization/Business/School, Block Sale.

If you have a small amount of stuff to sell and/or no place for a sale, check in at Hotwire Online Coffeehouse ASAP for a free spot in the Hotwire courtyard or Ginomai across the alley. There’ll be one general map listing for Hotwire; if you sell there, you’re still welcome to buy your own (optional) mention on the list via the form above – just mention Hotwire/4410 California SW as the sale address.

P.S. We haven’t set the end date for registration yet – we usually wait to see how things are going – but we keep signups open for at least three weeks, so there’s plenty of time for you to decide whether to jump in.
