We are so looking forward to Saturday, and hope you are too – the 9th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day! This is the sixth year that WSB has coordinated and presented it, and the maps and list are available for your perusal here – 280 sales of all sizes, all over West Seattle. Some people map out a route and drive all over; others check to see who’s having a sale within walking distance, and wander around. West Seattle also draws visitors from afar on that day (if you really love garage-saling, who can resist so many, so close together?), and that’s why we promote/advertise it in a variety of ways that also reach outside West Seattle. We heard today from someone coming from Keyport, and we’ve heard in the past from people who travel from Eastern Washington! We encourage everybody to invite their friends, co-workers, relatives to come on over – from Everett or Enumclaw, Bellevue or Ballard, Tacoma or Tangletown, come for the sales, stay for the scenery, the food and drink … (Sellers, if you meet people who say they came from someplace far-flung, let us know, even a quick text on sale day, 206-293-6302!) A few more points:
*Sellers and buyers interested in pre-sale chat are doing it on the WSCGSD Facebook page
*If Facebook’s not your thing, there’s also the WSB Forums
*Benefit sales are listed here
*Three local nonprofits are excited about accept any unsold “leftovers” this year – that info’s here
*Three group sites again this year, with multiple sellers – Hotwire Coffee (sale #57), C & P Coffee (sale #218), VFW Hall (sale #150)
*We’ll roll out a few more lists in the next two days (multifamily sales & plant sales among them)
If you know someone who needs a printed copy but has absolutely no way to print one, we’ve photocopied a few and dropped them off at four spots: Hotwire and C & P, Bird on a Wire, and the West Seattle (Admiral) Library. But you can even go almost-paperless this year – browse the sales online, make a note of the numbers for the ones you want to check out, then use this link to directly access the map in mobile format (including the list of sales, each listing even offering a chance to get directions).
