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!
