In exactly one week, sellers and shoppers will be recovering from the biggest West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day yet – 9 am-3 pm Saturday, May 9th, at 340+ locations all over WS. Here’s what’s new:
THE MAP: If you haven’t already seen it, the online version has been linked from the WSB navigation-tab bar for a few hours now – or just go here. The page includes tips for using and searching the map. If you have any questions, email@example.com is the official mailbox of WSCGSD. The printable version is still in the works – but it’s all the same information you’ll find on the now-available online map (click any sale marker to open its info-bubble including the sale description; you can use the search feature to look for keywords in those descriptions).
INFO FOR SELLERS: The e-mail version goes out in the next hour; postal-mail packets are in USPS’s hands. Speaking of whom …
STAMP OUT HUNGER: The USPS letter carriers’ annual door-to-door, mailbox-to-mailbox food drive is also on the second Saturday in May every year, so we always suggest that you put out your bag of nonperishable food for pickup before you head out to sell or shop – thousands of hungry neighbors are counting on you.
PUT UP A POSTER: We’re continuing to canvass WS with 8 1/2 x 11 posters for bulletin boards and shop windows; if you have someplace to put one up – favorite coffee shop, school, etc. – here’s the printable PDF we linked from the WSCGSD website earlier in the week.
UNUSUAL ITEMS: If you browse the sales, here’s some of the more unusual items you’ll find listed:
*Homemade dog jackets
*Tiffany ceiling fan
*Never-worn wedding dress
More spotlights during this week’s countdown!
