garagesaledaysmalllog5.jpgAnother awesome day of shopping, selling, and meeting your neighbors is in the works for the 10th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day – 9 am-3 pm Saturday, May 10th, sales of all sizes, all around West Seattle. The lineup is now up to 150 sales, and as your friendly neighborhood WSCGSD coordinators again this year, we’re keeping registration open until Wednesday night, April 23rd, before it’s time to get busy making the guide.

Again this year, if you want to have a sale but don’t have much room and/or merchandise, Hotwire Online Coffeehouse and C & P Coffee Company (both WSB sponsors) are opening their courtyards/yards as group sites – please inquire directly with either one about space. And NEW THIS YEAR – if you love shopping but don’t really need anything, watch for a special shopping list from WestSide Baby, inviting you to shop for items the nonprofit needs, which you can deliver to their dropoff spot on sale day.

If you’re having a sale, but haven’t signed up yet, here’s where to do it (mobile version here) – thank you!

  2. Same as every year we’ve done it (this is the seventh, and we cut prices in 2008 from what had been charged by the founders) – $12 individual, $20 business/org, $30 block sale. – TR

  4. If you register it, you’ll be on the map and in the guide (which includes a 15-word – up from our previous 10 – listing, too); when we start making the map after closing registration April 23rd, each sale is assigned a number, and you can use it to tell people to come see you at “sale #whatever on the map” when you promote your sale to your friends, co-workers, relatives, neighbors, etc. The map will be available one week before Garage Sale Day (extra lead time compared to some others who do this in other neighborhoods and don’t have a map until the day before) … TR

  5. more words? cool!
    we plan our garage sale day agenda with that guide and the descriptions. the more descriptive they are the better. we’re more likely to check out ones that give more of a hint of what we might find (“toddler toys, baby girl clothes, kid sports equipment and bikes”) vs ones that say “Lots of cool stuff and a bake sale, everything must go!”
