West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day countdown: 10 days to go

“Fascinating and incredible finds you won’t want to live without.”

“Newlyweds shedding the single life.”

“Possibly a giant rat head.”

Those are just three excerpts from the seller-provided descriptions of the 330+ sales in the works for the 11th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day, now just 10 days away, 9 am-3 pm Saturday, May 9th. We’ve read all 330+ of those descriptions as part of the process of making the WSCGSD maps (clickable Web version and printable/downloadable PDF version), which will be available starting this Saturday, here on WSB and on the official WSCGSD site, westseattlegaragesale.com. Three more description excerpts:

“Pre-estate sale: We don’t want to burden our heirs.”

“Pre-remodel de-clutter extravaganza.”

“Spring Clean-O-Rama.”

We’ll be counting down daily from here on out – stay tuned for more highlights!

    Are you going to include more of the clever descriptions on each day of the countdown?

      I made notes featuring more descriptions as well as also unusual items as well as miscellaneous observations. More moving sales than in years past, for example … one listing even trumpets that the seller(s) are moving to Europe! Also, bonuses such as lemonade stands, bake sales, coffee … and the sale where you are invited to meet their bunny rabbit. – TR

    Hopefully someone is selling some wooden trains and tracks. My sons birthday is coming and I’m on the hunt.

    Is there a listing of folks who are doing benefit garage sales? I’m not having a sale, but would like to donate to someone who’s going to do good with the income.

      The map will indicate that, and we also will have an advance post listing the benefit sales.

Sorry, comment time is over.
