July 24th, 2010 saw our most successful neighborhood garage sale to date. We had 56 participating sales, including a few in Lower Crown Hill (otherwise known as close to downtown Ballard). It looked like everybody was having a good time in the fabulous sunny weather (high temperature of 77 F on my weather station).
Crown Hill’s normally wide and fast streets took on a decidedly pedestrian friendly atmosphere as pedestrians, baby strollers and bikes slowly made their way from sale to sale.
Prices ranged from ridiculously low to reasonable. Most sellers were amicable to a fair amount of negotiation. By 3 PM a number of sales turned into free sales, and others were hauled off to the Goodwill or Value Village.
Thanks to all (buyers and sellers) for making this sale so successful.
Here are a few more pictures of the festivities:
