REPORT #2: Shopping in the sunshine as West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2019 continues


12:19 PM: That pic is from the easternmost sale on the West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2019 map – Sale #276 is actually in South Park (8503 10th Ave. S.) but with at least one piece of classic West Seattle memorabilia – a sign from the old Chuck and Sally’s Tavern (hmm, maybe the one in our 2013 coverage of the tavern’s “closing sale”). Lemonade and ice-cream sandwiches too! … In Westwood, lemonade and treats are raising money for Seattle Children’s at Sale #120 (9819 28th SW):

Another fundraiser sent a pic – Sale #90 (3207 45th SW), Girl Scout Troop 45120:

Theirs is a “7-family sale! Furniture, household goods, clothes, stuffed animals, and baked goods!”

12:51 PM: Just in, a “quick pic of what’s left at 3823 42nd SW”:

That’s Sale #268 – “lots of baby gear and clothes, some vintage ’50s tablecloths and other misc. housewares” … Also just in, video of Sale #28 (5902 41st SW), with accordion accompaniment:

Thanks to Jessica for sending that! … Shelby at Sale #144 (6005 Lanham Place SW) promised “wicked humor” as well as a variety of cool items:

Vintage items from a 1964 manual typewriter to a 1938 Singer Sewing Machine to a 1953 “one owner” air rifle (and more) … Looking for bikes? This photo is from Jonathan at Sale #290 (5061 25th SW):

They realized they were going into their sale with “WAY more than we thought!”

1:40 PM: We have just visited Sale #133, 8421 34th SW (just south of SW Thistle, another site with vintage items among other things:

From there to Sale #300, several neighbors in the 9200 block of 20th SW (south of Barton) – including Andrew and Derek:

Our coverage continues (see pics and notes from the first half of WSCGSD here).

2:18 PM: Now into the final hour. Lindsay‘s sale, #188 (3226 42nd Ave SW), is now “everything half-price:

2:27 PM: Alicia at Sale #163 (3226 42nd Ave SW) also has cut prices in half. Check out the Barbies!

2:38 PM: And if you’re more a “Star Wars” person, we hope you made it to the sale that promised R2-D2 photo ops (Sale 119: 3034 Belvidere Ave SW) – via Instagram:

Though the official sale hours end at 3 pm, you can keep shopping at some sales (see the listings) including the loft at Click! Design That Fits (4540 California SW; WSB sponsor):

The photo’s from Click! co-proprietor John Smersh, who says they’re offering “seconds, discontinued, and clearance items, until 6 pm.”

    Not a good idea to close California at Lander. Not sure how long or if it’s still closed but it forced traffic on to already congested side streets, many where only one lane of traffic can get by at a time. Had to get creative to get home and noticed traffic was backed up all the way down Admiral to the west. Lots of honking.

      That’s the crane closure, mentioned here at least five times in the past week, possibly stretching into the early evening. Wish the contractor had chosen another day but perhaps they don’t consult community calendars. At least the weather is good for safety concerns.
