Still looking for a unique West Seattle-specific gift?

Maybe this is it. We check every so often on the city’s inventory of retired/replaced street signs — updated spreadsheets are available online. Just checked this morning; when the latest list was posted a week ago (see it here), 50 “SW Admiral Way” signs were available, at $5-$10 each, plus various other ex-street signs from around West Seattle (including 13 copies of 32nd SW and 10 copies of 44th Ave SW). You can buy them in person at a city warehouse that’s open 11 am-4 pm weekdays; the info here seems to suggest you can call or e-mail before going down, to find out if the one you want is still available.

    Maybe they could use these signs to lay over some of our awful potholes…..

    Ha! That require a sign more along the line of the exit markers over I-5!!!!!

    Thanks so much for mentioning it!!! I ran down to get my 44th Ave SW sign, and funny enough someone else had just been there before me, also for 44th, any way there’s plenty left. Now I’m just waiting for a parking meter…..

    Thanks WSB! I snagged a sign for my husband — a perfect last-minute Christmas gift. He’s reorganizing the basement as we speak and a little local “art” is just the thing. I thought about signing in with another name in the off-chance that he’d see this post, but then I realized that the “All You Can Eat Fish & Chips” post is before this one, and he’ll certainly be waylaid by that. Really, who wouldn’t? Too bad next Tuesday is Christmas, I’ll have to wait until next week. Thanks for the great reporting on everything, WSB.

Sorry, comment time is over.
