West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2013 registration updates, including group sites

More than 70 sales are now on the list for the ninth annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day, just under five weeks away, Saturday, May 11th. Thanks to everyone who’s registered so far to help make sure it’s a big, fun day of selling and shopping, finding new treasures and meeting neighbors you never knew you had – sales all over the peninsula, usually more than 200, from Admiral to The Arroyos, Pigeon Point to Highland Park, and sometimes beyond! If you have signed up, please be sure you have a receipt from PayPal as well as the confirmation from us – our records so far show a few people have made it through the first part of the process but not the rest of the way – e-mail garagesale@westseattleblog.com if you’re not sure. Ready to sign up? Here’s the link!

If you want to participate but don’t have room for a sale or just don’t have that much stuff, the two traditional group sites (both WSB sponsors) are doing it again. The courtyard/parking lot area between Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (4410 California SW) and Ginomai art center is open for registration, reports Hotwire’s Lora Swift – e-mail her at info@hotwirecoffee.com to reserve a free space! Lora will then follow up as the date gets closer with a PDF map of the courtyard/lot showing where you’ll be. Meantime, C & P Coffee Company also is participating again – we don’t have details of their signup process yet, but we’d suggest inquiring at the shop. Whether you’ll be selling or shopping (or both), watch for updates on the official website and the official Facebook page., as well as here on WSB.

    I hope the couple on Beach Dr with all of the baby girl clothes participate again this year! It’s the only sale I will go to.

    What is the purpose of the fee? Is it just to be listed on the site? Thanks

      Yes, for being on the map and having an ad listed. Kind of like an admission fee for any event – it covers administrative, production, and marketing costs – we promote this around the region. When we took WSCGSD over six years ago, after its founding organization closed, we lowered the fees, and have not raised them since. Anything over our costs gets plowed back into WSB operations, as does most of our revenue (which otherwise comes entirely from advertising – we do not charge subscription fees, unlike a growing number of news operations, online and offline, and we offer free services that others charge for – job listing, obituaries, etc.) – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
