2 days until sunny, warm West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day. Here’s the second mini-list

Some years, as West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day approaches, we’ve been watching the forecast nervously, hoping the weather would stay dry, at least for that day. This year, there’s no nervousness needed – not only will Saturday’s weather be dry, it’ll be sunny and warm, a great day for person-to-person recycling, treasure-hunting, neighbor-meeting … So when you’re ready to browse the 400-sale map – if you haven’t already – you’ll find it here (that page also includes a link to the printable map, which you can search via browser find). We’re publishing some highlight lists in the days leading up to WSCGSD – Tuesday night we published the list of benefit/fundraiser sales; tonight, the other sizable sales (those that registered as block sales, and a few other highlights – note that a “block sale” may be everybody on the block selling together at just one house, so go first to the specific address listed):

#56: 6043 48th SW – block sale

    Any consideration to having this event be a weekend (Saturday AND Sunday) event next year?  Maybe the map could have an indicator of which day(s) participants will be having their sales.

    • KP May 11, 2023 (8:41 am)

      I for one would love that! It would also be really nice if it wasn’t Mother’s Day weekend. I’m sure there are reasons for the date, but dare to dream… 

      • KelH May 13, 2023 (1:14 pm)

        Yes please have it be both days to accomodate those who can’t make one of the days/have limited time to make it to all the cool spots on their list!

  • Upper Alki May 11, 2023 (6:06 am)

    Anyone know how much folks are selling lemonade for?   My kiddo will have a lemonade stand this weekend as well.  Thanks!

  • PatWS May 11, 2023 (10:58 am)

    I haven’t been able to get to this wonderful event in several years, but am excited for this weekend. Could someone let me know – can most sellers take credit cards, or would I need to carry a bunch of cash?

    (My apologies if this is answered somewhere on the site; I took a quick look and didn’t find this info.)

    • WSB May 11, 2023 (11:03 am)

      Hopefully we’ll hear from some sellers, but overall, there is no general policy – everybody gets to make their own. Some sellers have chosen to include their payment options in their listings – for example, running a quick “find” search on the printable list brings up 12 sales with descriptions mentioning Venmo and three mentioning PayPal … TR

    • JCW May 11, 2023 (11:41 am)

      First time seller this year (and elder millennial) planning to mostly take Venmo! I’m going to print off my QR code so folks can scan & pay directly. Will have a small amount of cash to make change as needed. I didn’t put any of this in my listing but will next time. Most of the parent buy-sell groups use Venmo or PayPal, so I’d venture that many folks have one or both. 

    • LRB May 11, 2023 (3:04 pm)

      Last year I brought a bunch of cash and most places were ok taking cash or Venmo.  I think I will have less cash this year and just plan on Venmoing as much as possible.

  • V May 11, 2023 (11:14 am)

    Is there still a way to participate in this through a multiple seller site? I reached out but never heard back from anyone. 

    • oerthehillz May 11, 2023 (7:58 pm)

      V-you may want to try asking the local Eagles club. They’re having tables set up outside for multiple vendors. Not sure if you have to be a member or not.

  • WS mom May 13, 2023 (12:15 am)

    I love this event, but why oh why does it have to be on Mother’s Day weekend. Moms take on SO much!  We could do it Father’s Day weekend?!?

Sorry, comment time is over.
