West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2011, the aftermath

Some sellers are continuing on till 4 or so – the folks raising money at West Seattle High School for its girls’ basketball team have cut everything to half price, says coach Sonya Elliott. Other sellers who are extending hours are posting on the WSCGSD Facebook page. And then there are the spots where leftovers can be donated:

The Big Blue Truck from Northwest Center is staying late today at 44th and Edmunds for anybody who wants to haul over unsold items, instead of booking a pickup next week (which you can do online at bigbluetruck.org) or taking them back down to the basement. They’ll be there till 6:30 today only – then back tomorrow regular hours, 9 am-5 pm. If you have kids’ stuff, WestSide Baby always has a wish list – check it out here. Tools? See what the West Seattle Tool Library needs – they are open tomorrow, 1-5 pm, at 4408 Delridge Way (east side of the building).


  1. Go Westside girls!!!

  2. Freecycle is another great resource for moving these items and anything else you don’t want any more on to someone who does. It’s a Yahoo group so you’ll need to register.

    Craigslist is another resource (click the “Free” link) but I like Freecycle better because you don’t get spammed when you post.

  3. Was a great day for walking around and browsing just for the heck of it. After donating my good unwanted stuff to the Jan S. sale, I put my “crap” on the parking strip with a free sign. By the time I came home everything was clean as a whistle!

  4. Sending a positive shout out about Green Guys for free pickup and recycling of unwanted electronics. This is a great, local (WS-based) service. Save yourself a trip and call David at 206.240.0892 or Glenn at 206.941.2836.
