Twelve days away from Saturday, May 10th, the day West Seattle becomes the person-to-person recycling capital of the region for six hours – the 10th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day. We here at WSB are excited to be coordinating it for a seventh year, and thrilled that more than 270 sales are confirmed (with many more sellers than that, because of multi-seller sites, block sales, etc.). A sampling of what you’ll find on the map when it goes public this Saturday, along with 240+ individual sales all over the peninsula:
*Block sales in/near areas including Delridge, South Admiral, Hansen View, Sunrise Heights, Upper Fauntleroy, Genesee, Lincoln Park, Seacrest Park
*Benefit sales at sites including the Log House Museum, future Delridge Grocery, West Seattle Eagles’ Aerie, Alki Masonic Center, King County Veterans Center, Straight Blast Gym (WSB sponsor), Taproot School, West Seattle High School, Bella Mente’s new location
*Special ways to donate, with WestSide Baby’s shopping list, and collections at Hotwire/Ginomai for books to donate to schools and
*The multi-seller sites at Ginomai/Hotwire & C&P (both coffeehouses are WSB sponsors)
We always love hearing the stories about WSCGSD leading to neighbors meeting neighbors they hadn’t met before, because – as you’ll see when the map’s out – even if you just want to walk around the immediate neighborhood, there’s bound to be somebody participating.
NOTE FOR WSCGSD SELLERS: One more call – PLEASE check the e-mailbox for the address you used to register; we still have a dozen-plus sales that aren’t finalized because they only made it halfway through the registration process. Saturday night, we sent notes to everybody on that list, and if we don’t hear from them, we have to assume they quit halfway through because they changed their mind, or had a problem; in either case, we need to hear from you by tomorrow – email@example.com – thank you!
