May 9, 2014 at 12:08 pm | In Community Garage Sale Day, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

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:

*Until the end of sale day (3:01 pm), any major updates – last-minute changes/cancellations, for example – will be on the official WSCGSD site and the map page here on WSB

*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.

  2. Search function on Zeemaps does not appear to work. Tried searching “houseware” “kitchen” to no avail.

  3. Hi – you have to choose “description” in the dropdown where it says “name.” Sorry it requires the extra step. I searched for housewares and it brought up about eight sales.

  4. Hey jaydee! If you’re looking for kitchen and housewares, be sure to stop by sale 166. We have Williams Sonoma and Pottery Barn dishes, glasses, cooks tools, serve ware and more. Some brand new or very rarely used. Also a brand new national brand rice cooker. I used to be an employee so lots of things I bought and never used! The map location is a bit off but we’re at the corner of 28th and Webster set up in the alley behind the house.

  5. After the sale come over to The Feedback for Lincoln Park Cooperative Preschool’s annual charity auction. We have a ton of great local items, and even just buying the special cocktail or mocktail will contribute money to the school. 6:30-9ish! http://lincolnparkpreschoolannualauction.blogspot.com
