Out driving around this morning, we saw a sign already up on a pole pointing people to a certain sale # on the West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day map. Warms our heart.

  5. Sale # 140
    Benefits the West Seattle Grand Parade.

    We’ve cleaned out our closets and found a few antiques that weren’t mentioned on our original bill:
    Aldritch of New York upright piano.

    National cash register.

    Piano Organ. It has glass tubes in the back and a seperate speaker doohickey. I would guesstimate 1940-1960′s? Very heavy.

  9. And while you’re out, drop off your Postal Carrier Food Drive donation at Cafe Osita (the unofficial ‘official’ collection site) until 2p today.
    Marty (The Mailcarrier) will pick up the goods @ 2p and they go directly to the West Seattle Food Bank.

    We’ll even give you a free soda with your donation of 3 or more items! … while supplies last!!

    We’re located at 7349 35th Ave SW (35th and Webster)

    Happy Shopping WSea!
