5 DAYS AWAY: West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day 2022 – here are the benefit sales!

With five days left until the return of West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day – this Saturday, May 14th – we’re getting down to specifics. The map/list has been public since Saturday, so you can see who has what, where. And we’re publishing some lists of certain types of sales from among the 320+ registered, starting now. First – the sales with all or part of the proceeds intended as benefits – here are the beneficiaries listed by the sellers:

#56 – Hope Lutheran Youth fundraising for travel
#70 – Emerald City Pet Rescue (including the kid-made $1 painted rocks in the photo above)
#72 – Boy Scout Troop 284
#78 – new nonprofit Hazelwood Preschool
#115 – Girl Scout Troop 42860
#211 – WSHS Earth Club (note that this sale’s location has changed – it will be at WSHS)
#221 – Esperanzas Unidas (youth-made art kits to raise $ to educate girls in Honduras)
#232 – Seattle Humane

#255 – Kitsap Humane Society
#270 – Delta Kappa Gamma’s scholarship fundraiser for women in education
#303 – Solstice P-Patch’s fundraising plant sale

(Did we miss anyone? Let us know – we reviewed all 320+ registrations but there’s always a chance we missed making a note.) Official sale hours are 9 am-3 pm Saturday, but some start earlier and some end later – see the listings for those notations, and be sure to re-check the map page for late changes and cancellations before Saturday – lists like this will be cross-linked there too.

    Garage salers: I have dozens of plastic to-go bags leftover from our sale in April. Anyone interested?

    Hi, I am so excited for this awesome event! I saw on the forecast for chance of rain. Will the sales still be happening if it happens? 

    • WSB May 10, 2022 (8:15 pm)

      Several people have asked about that today, and we’ll address that in tonight’s update. Short version, we’ve never had a rainout, not to say it can’t happen, but I can also say that the forecast for Saturday isn’t locked in by Tuesday so we’ll see how things look Thursday …

    As a faithful attendee of the wonderful West Seattle Garage Sale weekend since its inception, I must say that there have been two previous years when rain has greatly impacted the event with a suggestion that this may happen again this year.  It always makes me wonder why this is not held in July or August, when the chance for rain is nearly none.

    • WSB May 11, 2022 (9:54 am)

      There is too much else happening in the summer. I don’t have time to pull out all the links from coverage every year but as I wrote, while there’s been the occasional shower, we’ve never had a full-on rainy day. The historical weather averages are for a very low chance of rain – but it can happen in summer too (during the years when we were involved with the outdoor movies in July and August, those had the occasional rainout). There are just no guarantees.
