COUNTDOWN: 3 months until West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day

Days like this one – bright, almost warm – bring out the annual question: When is this year’s West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day? Just happens to be exactly three months away – May 13, 2017 (the second Saturday of May, as usual). This will be the 10th year that we’ve coordinated and presented WSCGSD, dating back to 2008; its creators at a community-connecting nonprofit called Megawatt launched it in 2005 and also ran it in 2006 and 2007. Registration will open in early April, as always, and we’ll announce that date when finalized. If you have a question in the meantime, we’ve just started monitoring our special mailbox – – thanks!

    I would like to participate but the timing is too crazy for me.  I have many items to sell, any thought on holding another big neighborhood garage sale in June or July?

      Summer is way too busy every weekend with big events – the reason this is in spring is it’s just before summer goes wild (which seems to get earlier every year!). – TR

        I think I’ll just put my stuff out for free that weekend and not worry about selling it.

    the Highland Park Improvement Club does a big community Garage sale the last part of July first part of August. They do it in the parking lot of the club.

    I live in an apartment building in West Seattle. Can people like me participate? If so, how does that work?

      Hi, Marshall. We’ve had apartment buildings participate with tenant(s)’ sales in courtyards, carports, lobbies, etc., obviously up to your management if they will allow that. But also, there’s *usually* a couple group sites – C & P Coffee Company, one of our sponsors, usually offers space to sellers. Not sure yet if Hotwire Coffee will do a courtyard sale again this year, since it has changed ownership since last year. Registration will open in early April with info here and on the WSCGSD site at – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
