If you want to be part of West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day on May 12th but don’t have enough room – and/or stuff – to register your own freestanding sale, once again this year our two WSB coffeehouse sponsors are going to offer space to small-scale sellers: Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (4410 California SW) and C & P Coffee Company (5612 California SW). Contact the proprietors of either coffeehouse directly if you’re interested in space – firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com (or inquire in person).
Meanwhile, after one week of signups, we have 60 sales registered, all sizes! While we promote WSCGSD regionally as well as locally, the aspect many people have told us they appreciate each year is getting out to meet and greet neighbors, whether they’re selling or buying – with more than 200 sales each of the past two years, almost every neighborhood has something going on. It’s the one day of the year that West Seattle becomes Garage Sale Paradise. (If you’re new to the area or pondering a sale for the first time, you can browse the archives on our official WSCGSD site to see photos from years past.) The map is available in printable and clickable forms one week before WSCGSD, but you have to be registered to be on it (and you get a classified-ad-style listing for your sale too) – here’s where to go to get in on it, and then, get ready for 9 am-3 pm Saturday, May 12th, one day, one peninsula, lots of sales! More updates to come, including via Facebook (the WSCGSD page is here; the WSB page is here).
