What we’re enjoying about your West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day listings, as May 10th gets closer

garagesaledaysmalllog5.jpgToday we’re proofreading the 270+ listings that go with the sales signed up for West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day (only 10 days away, 9 am-3 pm on Saturday, May 10th, sales of all sizes all over WS!) – and we’re noting some creative ways people are using some of their 15 words, including:

“Miscellaneous accumulation from 50 years of too much shopping.”

“LONG-TIME JUNKERS PURGING!”

“BAGS OF MYSTERY!”

“Things we don’t even know what they are!”

“A handyman’s Disneyland!”

“3 Broke Girls With Nice Stuff!”

And a brand-new neighborhood nickname has emerged – “SOCLO (South of Cloverdale) Fauntleroy neighborhood alley sale.”

We’re still making our way through the listings, so there are likely gems yet to come. (Don’t get us wrong – simple, clear listings are great too!) The first map release is this Saturday (May 3rd) – too soon to say what time, but if there’s breaking news, it’ll appear first on the official WSCGSD site at westseattlegaragesale.com. We’ll be sending the “packets” to sellers tomorrow, which is also the deadline for getting canceled sales off the map – after that, the best we can promise is a notation on the relevant webpages. Questions about the 10th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day (seventh one coordinated by us here at WSB)? garagesale@westseattleblog.com – thanks!

    while funny and creative, we’re more likely to pass over random descriptions of nothingness to go to sales that have items I know we’ll be interested in (ie, the approach that has served us very well in the past to get: dansk fondue pot, a rocking chair, bikes, helmets, a burley trailer, train toys…. wow looking back, wscgsd has really filled our house with lots of stuff! )
    but entertaining to read for sure!

      Those are just excerpts – we expanded the listings to 15 words this year so they all have practical info too :) at least all the ones I’ve seen so far!

    Yay, the 3 broke girls with nice stuff (if same one) did have some great stuff last year & look forward to going this year & hit the other sales in the neighborhood. Thanks, WSB.

Sorry, comment time is over.
