From sale #1 at the Masonic Center (40th/Edmunds) to sale #288 at 4400 SW 101st, West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day is hours away … just under 21 hours, as of this writing. The maps are here – online and printable PDF – both with details for each sale. A few other notes:
*The official site is also the best place to find out about sale day-linked donation drives.
*Want to take a break AFTER sale day? Straight Blast Gym (5050 Delridge Way SW; WSB sponsor) is offering a Parents’ Night Out event Saturday night, 6-10 pm, games, activities, movies, pizza, crafts, $30 first child, $20 each additional. Contact info’s here. (SBG is also having a sale tomorrow – #26 – raising money for its scholarship fund.)
*Whether you’re selling or shopping, consider sending us a photo tomorrow – we’ll be stopping by some of the sales as part of our as-it-happens coverage but we can’t get to all 280+ – thanks in advance!
As mentioned previously, tomorrow is also Stamp Out Hunger Day! If you got a blue bag in the mail, before you go out to shop or sell, fill it up with nonperishable food and tomorrow, leave it by your mailbox or your door, if that’s where you get your mail. If you didn’t get a bag – use one of your own, paper or plastic. Ours is ready:
Donations stay in the local area – and Kristina at the White Center Food Bank, which also serves southern West Seattle, has suggestions for your donation choices:
Please donate items like canned meats, tuna fish, soup, juice, vegetables, pasta, cereal, peanut butter, and rice. Please do not include items that have expired or are in glass containers.
