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.

The clock’s ticking if you are thinking of having a sale on West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2015 – coming up 9 am-3 pm Saturday, May 9 – but haven’t signed up yet: Deadline to register is this Thursday night, April 23rd – we need time to get the maps made and circulate them around the region to ensure maximum buyer power! You can register right here, right now – follow this link. Once the map debuts on May 2nd, you’ll know the number of your sale, so you can invite friends, relatives, co-workers, etc., and tell them you’re #XX on the map, but don’t wait to tell them about WSCGSD – plenty of sales to go around for everyone, so start letting them know this will be THE day to visit WS (if they’re not here already).

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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

More than 120 sales are now on the map for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2012 – the six hours (9 am-3 pm the second Saturday of May, which this year is May 12th) when our peninsula turns into Garage/Yard/Rummage Sale Paradise. We are now six days away from the official registration deadline – 11:59 pm next Wednesday (April 25th). That cutoff gives us just enough time to make the maps (which will be ready a week before WSCGSD) and launch the final round of promotion with something resembling an accurate total.
And here are two more notes:
**NOT ENOUGH ROOM OR STUFF FOR YOUR OWN SALE? Hotwire Online Coffeehouse and C & P Coffee Company (both WSB sponsors) are once again offering courtyard/yard space for small individual sellers. Inquire at either coffee shop (4410 California is Hotwire, 5612 California is C&P) or by e-mail – email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
**DON’T WANT TO SELL, BUT HAVE STUFF SOMEONE MIGHT WANT TO SELL? The Rainbow Girls will be on the map again this year, and looking for donations:
Cleaning out your closets? West Seattle #18 International Order of the Rainbow for Girls is seeking donations for our third annual garage sale Saturday, May 12th, 2012. If you have any small working appliances, furniture in good or better condition, tools and other household items that you would like to donate, please call Natalee Vroman 206-399-7748 or Jan Hunter 206-849-7906 and we will be happy to come and pick them up! Your donations are tax-deductible and we will provide you with a charitable contribution receipt. Rainbow Gets Girls Ready for Life! Check us out at www.gorainbow.org
Again, next Wednesday night is the deadline to sign up!
Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 12, 2012
Once again this year, Hotwire Online Coffeehouse and C & P Coffee Company are welcoming individual sellers to be part of a group space on West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day, May 12th! If you don’t have enough room or enough stuff for your own sale, you can contact either coffeehouse – email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org – to get on the list to be part of the group sale. We are up to about 70 sales after the first week and a half of registration! You can sign up by going here.
Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 2, 2012
Finally ready to go. Here’s the registration form. Everything is the same as last year – registration fees (we haven’t changed those since we knocked them down a notch when we took over WSCGSD in 2008), for example. Be sure to have all the info ready when you sign up – including what you want the ad for your sale to say in the map packet – even though it’s six weeks away, you probably know what your sale’s going to be about! And be sure to choose the right category for your sale in the dropdown box toward the start of the form. See you out there 9 am-3 pm Saturday, May 12th!
Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 2, 2012
Watch for news here sometime this afternoon or evening – soon as we make sure the form is in “all systems are go” mode. We’ll announce it in all WSB/WSCGSD channels (Web, Facebook, Twitter, etc.), so don’t worry, you won’t miss it.

Time doesn’t just fly … it roars … it zooms … it is a blur. And here we are, two months away from West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2012, which will be 9 am-3 pm on Saturday, May 12 (always the second Saturday). We’re currently planning to open registration on April 2nd. More to come!
Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 28, 2011
If you’re one of the 240+ sellers (not even counting the people participating at group sites like Hotwire and C&P) who’ve already signed up, thanks and we wish you tons of success! If not – we’re sorry to say, registration is closed, but it’s going to be one whale of a sale day!
Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 26, 2011
Don’t have the precise count but we’ve definitely passed 200 sales signed up for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2011 – coming up 9 am-3 pm May 14th! And there’s still time to sign up – follow the “how to register” tab here. Deadline is 11:59 pm tomorrow (Wednesday) night.
Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 7, 2011
As of early Thursday, 51 sales are already registered for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2011! And there are three group spots so far – in addition to Hotwire Online Coffeehouse in The Junction (contact owner Lora for a space), the VFW Hall in The Triangle will also open its doors (contact commander Ron Zuber), and if you have a bike or other gear to sell, get a hold of the folks at Cycle U in The Triangle.
Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 5, 2011
29 hours after opening registration for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2011, 33 sales are already signed up! That’s ahead of last year’s pace. One participant told us it’s a great excuse to get going with the spring cleaning.
Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 4, 2011
Full details are on our main site, West Seattle Blog – but if you know how this works and just want to get to the registration page, here’s the link (registration is online-only again this year). Sale day is 9 am-3 pm Saturday, May 14th. Note that we have a new option on the form this year – if it’s OK to just e-mail your info-packet materials instead of postal-mailing them, please click the appropriate button. Otherwise, the fees are the same for the fourth straight year. As of this writing, registration’s just been open a few hours and we already have a dozen signups – last year we had more than 200 sales, so we’ll see what happens this year!

After we get through a few stories-in-progress over at West Seattle Blog this morning, we’ll be taking a more official count of all the sales signed up for the sixth annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day – but our unofficial tracker says about 190 – definitely a new record, since we were in the low 180s last year. Thanks to everyone who’s participating! We’re still 2 weeks out (two weeks and one day, to be exact) but you’re invited to share info about your sale on the official WSCGSD Facebook page – photos, info, whatever, there’s not a ton of official info to share between now and then (we’ll be sending your postal mail packet) so that page is for participants as much as anyone. “Like” it here, if you haven’t already done that!
Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 22, 2010
Can’t wait to start going through them – so far all we’ve had time to do is count, and we passed 150 last night. You’ve got till just before midnight tonight (Thursday) to sign up – be part of a one-day Garage Sale Nation right here on our peninsula. Follow the registration link in the nav bar above! (And thanks to everybody for their patience and for working with the online-only process – when we started 3 weeks ago we thought we’d come up with a mail-in form, but we didn’t, and only one person has asked, so maybe we ARE ready in some respects for an all-online world!)
Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 20, 2010
Thursday night’s the registration deadline. We’ve passed 120 sales, big and small … that doesn’t count the dozens of individuals who are participating at the group sites. Sign up online – starting here.
Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 16, 2010
… which is about exactly where we were at this time last year … so no worries about procrastinating, it’s the perfect time to register! Or, if you are looking for a group site, check in with Hotwire Coffee (shown above in photo from last year) or C & P Coffee, both of whom had offered courtyard space to people who needed somewhere to set up. Registration closes at the end of the night next Thursday 4/22, and in the meantime, the annual promotion blitz is about to start – posters, ads, etc. Again, Saturday, May 8, is sale day, with as many sales as people register, big and small, all over the peninsula, 9 am-3 pm is the official sale time period. Thanks for supporting the 6th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day – register your sale with the online form you’ll find here!
Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 9, 2010
Registration is going great – we are now into Week 2. Just about time to start papering the town with posters etc. But in the meantime, signed up your sale yet? Great way to deal with the results of spring cleaning. And remember that Hotwire Coffee (West Seattle Blog sponsor) and C & P Coffee are both offering space – free unless you want a separate ad on the map for your setup at either place, in which case, please sign up as an individual and be sure we know that’s your sale site. Thanks for supporting the 6th annual WSCGSD!
