It’s past 3 pm, so for most sales, the curtain has fallen. Thanks to everyone who’s been selling or shopping, enabling a decade-and-a-half-plus tradition to return. A few notes:

DONATION TRUCK FULL: If you missed the mentions in our as-it-happened coverage and on the map/list page, the Lafayette PTA Goodwill truck filled within minutes, so do NOT take anything there. Two other organizations have expressed an interest in donations, as noted here.

LEFT BEHIND: We’ve received two notes about items left behind – in one case, a purchased item whose buyers did not take everything they were entitled to. John says they bought “a Ryobi 40V battery pole hedge trimmer from me but did not take the batteries and charger with them. I’d love to get the batteries to them. Especially since it won’t work without them.” If that trimmer buyer is you, let us know so we can connect you.

Also – did you buy this at one sale and accidentally leave it at another?

Marianne reports, “This was left at our garage sale: 3433 39th Ave. SW.”

    Just wanted to say thank you to all the neighbors that donated to our garage sale. We raised $343 that was donated to the Planned Parenthood Action fund. Thank you WSB for putting all of this together.

    Hi! Thanks very much for all the work that it took to put this together.We’re interested in donating some items and it looks like the link you have on this thread is broken.

    Link not working to the other donation options but our Girl Scout troop is one of them, collecting kids stuff for the White Center Elementary School family resource center.

    Your link to alternate places to donate leftover goods seems to be malformed.

    Thanks to all the happy shoppers today! We have a lovely fleece jacket left behind at 47th and Lander. Hanging on the corner.

    If no one claims this photo, my husband would love it. I’m willing to pay and pick up. Thanks!
