Countdown to West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day: 2 days!

Now just two days until the 11th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day, presented by WSB, 9 am-3 pm Saturday, May 9th. Looks like sellers are clear to start getting ready, because it’s clear sky all the way to and through Saturday, the forecast says.

The newest toplines:

*340+ sales of all sizes, all over West Seattle

*Addresses and sale descriptions are on the online map here and the printable list/guide/map here

*The sales are numbered for easy referencing, same numbers on both versions of the map, of course

*Looking for a specific item or type of item? Use the search icon on the online map, or open up the printable (21-page PDF map) and use the FIND function

*Two official multi-seller sites, for people who didn’t have the room or the amount of stuff to have an entire standalone sale:
—-Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (WSB sponsor)/Ginomai courtyard/lots, 4410 California SW
—-C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor), 5612 California SW

*For sellers with leftovers they don’t want to keep post-sale, AND/OR for people who want to shop for fun and donate their purchases to good causes, SEVEN organizations have donation drives going on Saturday (and a few of them on Sunday) for dropoffs (even one offering pickups). See the full details here, including who’s accepting what, where, and when.

*If you missed any or all of them, here are links to highlight lists we’ve published:
*Nonprofit/benefit sales
*Trivia from this year’s lineup
*Unusual items
*Memorable descriptions

Few more lists to come tonight/tomorrow, including block sales and unusual items, 2nd round. Also: We invariably get last-minute sale cancellations – we mark them on the ONLINE map, but it’s too late to change the PRINTABLE map, so please check the map page or for those changes.

    Are you making garage card bingo cards this year?

      Somebody else did that last year, completely unsolicited. Haven’t heard from them this year.

    Does anyone know the rules for having a yard/garage sale every weekend. Someone in my Neighborhood holds one every weekend and it looks trashy due to the amount of stuff laying around in the yard.

      If you think someone is violating zoning rules, file a complaint with the DPD.
      There are no specific rules regarding whether you can have a garage sale once a year or once a week unless you think it’s actually a business, in which case that might run into zoning rules, but contact the DPD (see link above, I believe there’s a hotline too) to ask.

Sorry, comment time is over.
