Just 19 hours till the start of selling and shopping – or, as we call it, person-to-person recycling – at West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2013! Here are some last-minute reminders/updates:
WHAT IS IT? Not one big sale – but LOTS of sales, of all kinds, all over West Seattle, tomorrow (Saturday, May 11), 9 am-3 pm. (Sellers registered between April 1st and 24th, so you can’t just get on the map at the last minute. We open registration around 4/1 every year, and keep it open for three weeks.)
WHERE? The registered sales are all on the map, which we have in two versions shown on and linked from this page:
-Clickable/zoomable online map
-Searchable, too (the “search” button is now back in view on the online map)
-Printable 14-page PDF with the sale listings
WEATHER? Partly sunny, 70s, says National Weather Service
MOBILE? Yes! Access the map on your phone using this link – it includes list and map versions, and you can even check directions to specific sales.
WHERE ARE THE BIGGEST SALES? Everywhere! Browse the listings to see who’s having a group sale, block sale, school sale, etc. There are three “group” sites, with multiple sellers – Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (4410 California SW), C & P Coffee (5612 California SW), and the VFW Hall (36th/Alaska).
WHO’S RAISING MONEY FOR CHARITY? We have a list of the sales that listed themselves as fundraising for a cause – see it here.
ANYBODY SELLING PLANTS? Yes, they are – you could almost call this a garage and garden sale day. Here’s that list.
WHAT HAPPENS TO STUFF THAT DOESN’T GET SOLD? This year, three nonprofits and a school are all interested in any leftovers that sellers are interested in donating, and they have special dropoff spots and hours. We’ve just updated the information – adding a book-collection request on behalf of Denny International Middle School; see the details here.
CHECK TOMORROW MORNING FOR UPDATES … We’ve had a few last-minute cancellations, and while we can’t change the “printable” (PDF) map, we are noting those sales as “canceled” on the online map, and listing their numbers atop the WSB page that hosts it as well as at westseattlegaragesale.com.
PRE-SALE CHAT … continues to happen on the WSCGSD Facebook page.
Have a GREAT time – and send photos! firstname.lastname@example.org (or share on FB)
