garagesaledaysmalllog5.jpgIt’s the biggest West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day yet, and the sales start in three hours! At this year’s sites, you’ll find everything from holiday decorations to wet suits to plant sales, with businesses, schools, and youth organizations participating as well as dozens and dozens and dozens of neighborhoods and individual sellers too. See the list of benefit sales here (some for organizations, some for individual situations like a couple saving for adoption). 280 sales are on the WSCGSD maps – which you’ll find here (Web, printable, and mobile versions). 3 of those sales are the group sites – Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (sale #57, 4410 California SW), C & P Coffee Company (sale #218, 5612 California SW) and the VFW Hall (sale #150, 3601 SW Alaska). Happy shopping/selling! 9 am-3 pm are the official sale hours; please check atop the map page before you head out, for updates including the handful of last-minute cancellations. We’ll be out visiting some of the sales for ongoing coverage again this year, but no matter how fast we move, we’ll only get to a fraction of the sales, so whether you’re a seller or a shopper, we’d love to get a photo from you – editor@westseattleblog.com (if you prefer Facebook, please share on the WSCGSD page, where sellers and shoppers have been strategizing in advance and will likely chat throughout the day).

P.S. A full preview of everything else happening today/tonight is coming up next hour.

  1. Remember to keep your home’s doors & windows locked while you’re shopping or selling today too! Knowing that so much of WS is either out or otherwise occupied in the garage is a pretty tempting opportunity for thieves. Better safe than sorry :)

  2. Please consider donating your garage sale leftovers to ARBOR HEIGHTS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL on JUNE 1st (Spring Carnival Day!). The school is doing a drive for all gently used clothing, and household items and even small furniture under 50 pounds will be accepted. The school will receive 10 cents per pound for these donations. This flyer has all the details – http://bit.ly/17aLRFr

  3. GHO, good reminder but on the other hand it should be somewhat daunting for would-be burglars (who seem to take hiatuses on weekends) to know that so many neighborhoods will be crawling with people, if it’s anything like last year. :) – TR

  4. Hope so, TR! We’ve had 3 thefts (that we know of) of in our neighborhood in the past two days :( Take the day off, dirtbags!
