2014 Crown Hill Neighborhood Garage Sale, July 26th 9AM-3PM

The 2014 edition of the Crown Hill Neighborhood Garage Sale is upon us.

When: Saturday, July 26th 9 AM – 3 PM
Where: Garages and Yards all over Crown Hill
What: Great sales, great people and a great neighborhood

We’ll have printed maps available at 9 AM at Crown Hill Center in the Green Box to the left of the steps at 9250 14th Ave NW. As always the map and listings are available online at http://crownhillneighbors.org/gsale. A PDF version is available here: http://crownhillneighbors.org/gsale/gsale2014.pdf

This is a great chance to walk or bike or drive (slowly please) through the neighborhood to check out what treasures Crown Hillers have for sale. If you’re a Crown Hiller, then even better because you get to interact with your neighbors. We’ve got a lot of young entrepreneurs who’ll be out there hawking lemonade and other refreshments to slake your thirst and sate your palate. A few sales are held as charity benefits, so be sure to drop by those. We expect there will be many free sales as well.

2014 Crown Hill Neighbors Garage Sale (8th Annual) — signups are open

gsale2014Signups are now officially open for the fabulous Crown Hill Neighbors Garage Sale to be held July 26th, 9AM-3PM this year. This is our eighth year of running the sale. Sign up here: http://crownhillneighbors.org/gsale/gsinput2014.html

It’s not too early to be checking your basement, attic, garages for stuff to go into your sale. Check with your neighbors to see if they might do a multi-family sale with you. Past years have seen some folk converting under-utilized stuff into cold hard cash, neighbors coming by and striking up conversations, and more.

As in past years, we especially encourage young entrepreneurs to set up lemonade and refreshment stands.

The map isn’t much to look at yet, but after a few signups it’ll start to be a hopping scene.
