MAP DAY EVE! And other West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2017 updates

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 5, 2017

9:08 PM MAY 5th: It’s Friday night and tomorrow’s the second-biggest day of West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day season – the day the map goes public! We’re in the final stages of working on it tonight so we’re expecting to have it ready and available around noon Saturday (May 6th) – watch for the announcement here and on our partner site West Seattle Blog, where the main WSCGSD page with the online map, and the downloadable/printable map and listings, will also be linked from our navigation bar/menu when it’s ready.

If you’re a seller, the “packet” is going out tonight. But this site is the main info hub – we’re also working on the AFTER THE SALE tab, with info from the local nonprofits who are interested in any leftovers you might have. But before we get that far ahead, everyone think SUNSHINE! for Saturday, May 13th. We know more than 300 sellers will be spending this weekend readying wares from crystal chandeliers to SCUBA gear to a “’60s Coke machine” to “nerdy gifts” to a “1962 Aloha trailer” to a surfboard, a sailboat, sleds …

9:36 AM SATURDAY: Still on track for the maps in the noon vicinity (or shortly thereafter)!

Another reminder about Stamp Out Hunger on West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 2, 2017

The second Saturday in May is not only West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day – it’s also the coast-to-coast food drive headed up by US Postal Service letter carriers, Stamp Out Hunger, and that goes for this year’s big day – May 13th – too.

Every year we joyfully remind WSCGSD sellers and shoppers to put out their donations by their mailbox (or door if that’s how/where you get mail) before they get going for the day – many residences get special bags earlier in the week, courtesy of the letter carriers, but if you don’t, you can still set out your donation in a bag of your choice. We do it every year too, before we head out to photograph some of the sales for ongoing all-day coverage.

Meantime, WSCGSD is just 11 days away and you’ll find the maps and list of sales linked here (and on our parent site West Seattle Blog) on Saturday – we’re continuing to work on them right now!

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!

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

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.

9 days to go to West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2015

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 30, 2015

Just in case you’re wondering how things are going, some miscellaneous notes:

*We will have at least 330 sales – probably 340+ – depending on last-minute cancellations. Speaking of which, if you are a seller, this is your last chance to get off the map if you have to cancel … please call us, 206-293-6302, don’t e-mail, ASAP!

*The descriptions of sales and highlighted items are awesome as always. We took notes while proofreading the listings as part of the mapmaking process. Mentioned a few of them in this update yesterday on West Seattle Blog.

*We wanted to remind you that again this year, the second Saturday in May is ALSO “Stamp Out Hunger” – the door-to-door, mailbox-to-mailbox Letter Carriers’ food drive. Make plans to have a bag of nonperishable food to donate – set it out by your door/mailbox/wherever your letter carrier stops, before you head out for a day of shopping OR selling.

*We will be sending the sellers’ info packets on Friday. Watch your e-box (or if you requested postal mail, your mailbox).

*And again, the map will be available starting this Saturday. The online version is always the first one we get up – watch for the announcement here and on WSB.

*Invite your friends, relatives, co-workers, etc. to come over and garage-sale with you on May 9th – we would love to see people from all over the region as usual – here’s an 8 1/2 x 11-size poster you can print and put up on a bulletin board of your choice.

REMINDER: The 2015 WSCGSD map’s not out until May 2nd

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 26, 2015

A couple WSCGSD 2015 sellers have contacted us saying they saw a map somewhere and are concerned that they’re not on it. Please note that **this year’s map is not out yet** so if you saw a map somewhere (maybe something Google grabbed onto in recent years) – it’s NOT this year’s map – look closely; we label every year’s map very clearly with its year, just in case something like this happens. As mentioned in every update we’ve published and in all communications with sellers – we take about a week post-registration to shine everything up (fix address formats, proofread the ads, contact sellers with questions if we have any) and get the map together, and as soon as it’s ready, we’ll announce it here, on our main site West Seattle Blog, on our WSB social channels, etc., and it will be clearly labeled 2015 WEST SEATTLE COMMUNITY GARAGE SALE DAY MAP. Thanks so much – 13 days to go!

2 weeks until the biggest West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day ever!

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 25, 2015

Saturday, May 9th, will be the 11th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day and the biggest one ever. By the time registration closed Thursday night, more than 320 sales had signed up! All sizes, from individual homes to organizations/schools/businesses and multi-seller sites (including WSB sponsors Hotwire Online Coffeehouse and C & P Coffee Company), to block sales around the peninsula. WSB has coordinated WSCGSD since its fourth year (2008); here’s our update on what happens now:

*We are finalizing the list so we can make the map, which debuts on May 2nd so shoppers have a week to plan ahead – the clickable and printable/downloadable versions will be featured here and on westseattleblog.com.

*If you’re a seller, please check that you got both receipts, the confirmation from us AND the registration-fee receipt from PayPal (which would be via our LLC name, A Drink of Water and a Story Interactive). If you had problems paying, please e-mail us at garagesale@westseattleblog.com if you don’t hear from us first.

*We’ll be mailing (e- or postal- depending on what you marked on the registration form) info packets to sellers, including the “official participant” sign you are welcome to use with your signage.

*If you need to cancel your sale, please call us – 206-293-6302 – by May 1st so we can take you off the map. After that, last-minute cancellations can be taken off the online map, but not the printable/downloadable version.

*In sale updates over the next week-plus, we’ll have a poster file available for anybody who wants to put one up at their school, workplace, wherever – we promote WSCGSD regionally, and have heard of shoppers coming from hours away, but your help in spreading the word will be awesome. The easiest web address to share is westseattlegaragesale.com, though the map will be here too (and will have a special “tab” under the sunset header).

*If you’re a prospective shopper – watch for the map starting May 2nd, and whether you’re just going to walk around your neighborhood and see who’s selling what, or planning a wider expedition, get ready for a great day. Note that some sellers might start earlier or end later than the 9 am-3 pm window on May 9th – if they provided that information, it’ll be in their “ad” info accompanying the map.

ALSO: In years past, we’ve published info from nonprofits making special arrangements for sellers to donate leftovers, and/or inviting people to shop for potential donations of certain items the nonprofit needs, so that WSCGSD can have great community ripple effects beyond the fun of buying/selling. Any org thinking about either of these, please e-mail garagesale@westseattleblog.com ASAP so we can discuss. Thanks!

Shorewood Streets of Sales ahead on June 7th

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on May 29, 2014

West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day seems to be the season-opener – since our big day on May 10th, we’ve already had the area’s longest-running event, in Greenwood, and now we’re looking ahead to June 7th in Shorewood. As announced:

The Shorewood Streets of garage sales is right around the corner on Saturday June 7th from 9 am-4 pm.

As usual the neighborhood will be filled with sales, deals and deal seekers. The different entrance points to the neighborhood will be lit up with large signs and balloons with maps available in boxes. For those more tech inclined we also have an online map that is live up the minute with sale locations. More people are joining in every day, we usually have around 50 sales!

Join us in Shorewood and support this 20+ year tradition! There is a reason the sale has keep strong for so long, great sellers and customers!

Counting down to West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2014! And a message for sellers

Posted by westseattlegaragesale on April 28, 2014

Registration is closed and it looks like we’ll have about 280 sales for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2014 – maybe more, but we’re trying right now to reach more than a dozen people who went halfway through the registration process but didn’t finish it via PayPal. Without a complete registration, you won’t be on the map – so please make sure you have an e-mail receipt from PayPal, and if you don’t, please e-mail us ASAP – garagesale@westseattleblog.com. Also check your mailbox; we sent notes over the weekend to everyone for whom we don’t have a PP receipt. If you changed your mind mid-registration, no problem, but it would be great if you let us know.

Now, a bit about the lineup: The heart of West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day is the web of individual sales all over the peninsula – more than 250!!! Beyond that, we have the group sites – Hotwire/Ginomai in The Junction, C & P Coffee to the south.

And we also have nonprofits participating including:

*Log House Museum on Alki

*Delridge Grocery Co-op

*Scout Troop 284 at West Seattle Veterans’ Center in The Triangle

*West Seattle High School in Admiral

*Lincoln Park P-Patch sale in Fauntleroy

*Masonic Family group sale in The Triangle

*West Seattle Eagles sale in The Junction

*The Taproot School sale in Fauntleroy

*Straight Blast Gym sale (scholarship-fund benefit) in Delridge

*SSC plant sale benefiting the horticulture program (on Puget Ridge)

*Sale benefiting Chamwino Connect, in Sunrise Heights

Sale day, again, is Saturday, May 10th, 9 am-3 pm. (Some sales may choose to start earlier and/or end later, but no late starts or early ends, please .) We are in the mapmaking process currently and if all goes well, we’ll link to the online/printable maps here and on West Seattle Blog, starting next Saturday, since our goal is always to get the map out a week in advance.

With so many sales, we are advertising/promoting WSCGSD all over the region, but it also helps if you make sure your friends/relatives/co-workers know that this is THE day to come to West Seattle, shop the sales, visit local businesses while you’re here, sightsee, have a great day.

More previews to come – including the “shopping list” for WestSide Baby, a request for book donations for students, and more.
