2012 REGISTRATION BEGINS! Here’s the link to the form

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!

Day and a half into registration, 33 sales already for WSCGSD 2011!

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.

And … registration is open for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2011!

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!

Unofficial tally for 2010 WSCGSD sales: ~190 !!!!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 23, 2010

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!

Last day to register – more than 150 sales so far!

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!)

120+ sales, with 2 1/2 days to go …

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.

Countdown to registration deadline for 2010: Ninety sales so far!

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 Dayregister your sale with the online form you’ll find here!

Almost 60 sales so far for 2010 West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day!

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!

Four days into registration, 30+ sales for 2010!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 5, 2010

garagesaledaysmalllog5.jpgThanks to everybody who’s signed up so far – off to a good start toward another year of making West Seattle the Garage Sale Capital of Western Washington (if not beyond) For A Day. So far, we have sales from North Admiral in the north to White Center in the south. Again this year, we’ll make the map in two versions – the printable kind (which will be a PDF file so not “interactive”), and the Google Maps view-it-online-and-maneuver-around-it kind (which WILL be “interactive”) and like last year, both kinds will be available by the Sunday before sale day. Last year, we distributed early map copies at the Sustainable West Seattle Festival; unfortunately this year that’s not happening till June (in connection with Delridge Day June 5), but we’ll let you know by mid-month where maps will be available starting May 2nd! Other news: 2 locations for group sales – Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (longtime West Seattle Blog sponsor) and C&P Coffee – if you don’t have a place to sell your stuff, check in with either of those venues and find out about signing up for some space there on Community Garage Sale Day. Just one note on that – if you want your own ad on the WSCGSD map, even if you’re at the group venue, please register as an individual; otherwise, each of those locations will get one mention on the map as a group-sale site. More registration news to come – you have till April 22nd to get in on it! Here’s the registration form

TODAY’S THE DAY! Registration opens this morning

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 1, 2010

Closing in on 110 sales, with four days to sign up …

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 21, 2009

That’s a big jump from last year, when we only hit 100 on the second-to-last day to register, so #110 was in the final batch … OK, OK, so we have a longer registration period this year. Still, it’s only natural to wait till the last moment. Now, a few reminders: When you register, please make sure you give us the correct mailing address, and indicate if the sale is at a different address – we are mailing everybody a packet, with your “official participant” sign plus some other information, and we need to make sure that gets to you well in advance of sale day. Also, just so you know, we are continuing to place ads around the area so as we move from registration to the two-week pre-sale publicity push, there shouldn’t be a bargain hunter within 100 miles who hasn’t heard of WSCGSD. So – you signed up yet?

Registration countdown: Six days to go

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 19, 2009

West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day, May 9, 200911:59 pm next Saturday (April 25), we need to have your registration in hand – either online (which means if you start registering by, oh, say, 11:50 or so that night to get through the form and PayPal, you should be more than golden) or by postal mail (we’d suggest sending the form no later than Thursday) … We have those courtyard sales at Hotwire and C & P Coffee (check if there’s still room), we have school sales (including Roxhill and Gatewood Elementaries), block sales, estate sales, and dozens of great individual sales. Want to make a few extra bucks? Clean up and sell out! Er, outside, we mean. 9 am-3 pm Saturday, May 9th, is the date/time for the official West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day – our second year coordinating it, but this is the 5th annual WSCGSD!

3 weeks till WSCGSD – 1 week left to register!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 18, 2009

Close to 90 sales now, with one week of registration remaining. Our focus the past few days has been stepping up the marketing, now that we’re three weeks away from The Big Day – we’ve spent the past two days distributing the first wave of posters (we’ll have a revised poster once the registration period is closed, and we’ll post a link here so you can print one out if you want to put it up at work, school, wherever) and also starting to line up the advertising — just started with the granddaddy of ’em all, the Little Nickel (in print and online) … one of us worked for a similar publication many, many years ago and many, many miles away, so we have a soft spot for such things. But online is the most important way to get the word out now, and since we are major Facebook and Twitter users at West Seattle Blog, we’ve been utilizing those “channels” too. (On FB, become a fan of West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day – go here.)

Update: 70 sales!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 14, 2009

… and we haven’t even been to the mailbox yet today. But online registration is the way to go – see the tab above.

We were asked at last night’s Pigeon Point Neighborhood Council meeting, so what do you get for your registration fee?

Regional promotion – including your spot on The Map, and an “ad” of up to 10-words on The Map. As we’ve mentioned before, this is the FIRST major community-wide garage sale day in Seattle this year, so bargain-hunters will be dying to get out and shop (not to mention, economic belt-tightening makes garage saling more popular than ever). West Seattle will be THE place to be on May 9 — be part of it!

2009 registration updates, after first weekend of signups

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 6, 2009

West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day, May 9, 2009Great 1st weekend for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day registration for 2009 — 25 sales registered, including several group/block sales!

Speaking of which, we now have two locations, if you want to be part of the big day but don’t have a place for your own sale:

Hotwire Coffee: Get in touch with owner Lora about space in the courtyard

C and P Coffee: Talk with owner Cameron

Both are reachable through their shops, with info at their websites. In addition to an extended registration window (three full weeks this year), we’re adding another time-related improvement: More time to get/review the map. We’ll be promoting West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day at the Sustainable West Seattle Festival on the preceding Sunday, May 3, so it makes perfect sense to have the map ready in time to hand out at the festival — extra days to review it and plot your sale travels!

Ready to sign up? The forms are linked here (and within a day or two, we will also have a few locations listed for you to pick up a form in person, if you prefer).

And if you’re on Facebook – where West Seattle Blog has a lively group of friends as “WS Blog” – we’ve just created a WS Community Garage Sale Day page that you can “become a fan” of and participate in: Find it here.

Online registration form now available for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 4, 2009

In addition to the special in-person deal we’re offering if you come by and sign up in person (bring cash or check) at the Gathering of Neighbors today, we’ve also just launched the online registration form – find it here.

Or, if you prefer to print out a form and mail it in with your check, here’s the form you can use to do that (don’t try to print out the online form linked above – its special configuration won’t work that way).

Any questions? Leave a comment here or e-mail garagesale@westseattleblog.com – thanks!

Registration is closed – now it’s time to talk Garage Sale Day!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 26, 2008

We won’t have a final count till Monday’s mail rolls in (figuring that any forms postal-mailed on Friday may not make it in till then), but we know the number of sales registered for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day on May 10 has passed 140 — this is going to be a blast! Registration IS closed; the online form is deactivated, and mail-in forms would have had to be postmarked Friday. Now it’s time to start shouting the news all around Puget Sound — we’ve already got a variety of announcements out but more to come — whether you’re a shopper or seller, how about you invite friends/relatives from other areas to come to West Seattle and have a blast garage-saling on May 10? Maps will be available online and at designated pickup spots (we will post the list over the weekend) May 8. And we’re now assembling packets for participants – those will go out in postal mail within a few days. More WSCGSD news later today!

P.S. If you want to get in the sale mood, the St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church 2-day rummage sale continues 9 am-3 pm today (and next Fri-Sat too).

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 24, 2008

Our 100th registration just came in! You can still sign up your sale as long as you do it by tomorrow night. (P.S. We know some people have had trouble with the PayPal payment method – which takes major credit cards, you don’t have to be a PP member – so we’ll be contacting you for other options.) QUICK LINKS if you’re not in on West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day yet — Online registration form here, downloadable mail-in form here, list of locations to pick up a preprinted registration form here.

80 sales for WSCGSD ’08, and still growing!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 22, 2008

Another milestone. That’s an incredible number already, but we’re secretly (ok, not so secretly since we posted it here) hoping to hit 100 before registration closes this Friday night – think of how great that’ll sound in the promotion! We’ve already posted more than a dozen ads in on- and offline publications that are read citywide (and beyond), by the way. Go, garage salers, go!!!!

50 sales signed up so far!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 18, 2008

West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day, May 10, 2008The 4th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day on May 10 is continuing to shape up as a great day to shop and sell – we’ve now hit 50 sales, from group-sale sites like Hotwire Coffee and C and P Coffee (stop in to sign up, if you don’t have enough room or items for your own sale), to organization/school sales like the Community School of West Seattle and Log House Museum and North Delridge Neighborhood Council, to dozens of great-sounding individual and block sales! Registration is open for one more week (till 11:59:59 pm Friday, April 25) and then we’ll start talking more about the big day itself, including the “best sign” and “most unusual item” contests, selling and shopping strategy, etc. To sign up your own sale right now (individual, school/business/organization, or block sale) — here are the quick links — Online registration form here, downloadable mail-in form here, list of locations to pick up a preprinted registration form here.

Update, including a place to go if you can’t have your own

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 16, 2008

We’ve passed 40 sales registered for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day as of late morning today! Still continuing to find new ways to get the word out (do you have a place to display a poster, where we haven’t already asked to put one up? e-mail us and we’ll bring one over!). Also, Lora Lewis of Hotwire Coffee (which we’re always proud to note is West Seattle Blog‘s inaugural sponsor) is going to have a space in the courtyard for a group sale – go to Hotwire to sign up; $10 donation requested for Furry Faces Foundation, an animal-advocacy group with strong West Seattle ties. If you’re ready to sign up your own sale (individual, school/business/organization, or block sale) — here are the quick links — Online registration form here, downloadable mail-in form here, list of locations to pick up a preprinted registration form here.

Quick links — Online registration form here, downloadable mail-in form here, list of locations to pick up a preprinted registration form here.

Let the sale registrations begin!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 10, 2008

Our first registrations are in! We’ve also uploaded the printable form in case you want to print and fill it out and mail it in (deadline for us to receive it is April 25, please don’t wait till the last minute). So here are the important links:

Easy, simple, quick: Go here for online registration and payment

Rather mail it in? Download printable form to fill out and send with check

*Remember to have your 10-word (or less) ad ready when you register – this is how your sale will be described on the printable and downloadable map that will be available a few days before The Big Day.

(If you are new to the area or hadn’t heard of this before – we’ve had the question once today already – this is NOT one big sale at one location; this is dozens of sales (hey, hundreds if that many people sign up – it’s been more than 100 the past few years) all over West Seattle, on the same day, as a fun event to build community and draw visitors from elsewhere.)

Glad you’ll be part of it.
