9th Annual Crown Hill Neighborhood Garage and Yard Sale
When: Saturday, July 11th, 9 AM to 3 PM Where: All over Crown Hill
Garage sales fill that need to turn one person’s castoff into another’s treasure. Whether it’s baby clothes your high schooler outgrew years ago and a young family could use, or that bike that clutters your basement and someone without a car could use, or …. You get the idea. Start rounding up the stuff. Talk to your neighbors about doing a multi-family blowout sale with BBQ and a really festive atmosphere. See if the kids are up to selling lemonade, cookies, etc. to contribute to their iPad fund.
Signups are open until 5 PM on Friday, July 10th. We’ll get to updating the map soon after you post your information, but if you don’t see it within 24 hours, shoot us an e-mail with the details: firstname.lastname@example.org
Crown Hill Neighbors has been organizing the annual garage sale since 2007! We were one of the first in Seattle to publish an online map of all the sale locations – something much copied about town. It’s a lot of fun to cruise the sales and talk to your neighbors if you don’t have the time to put together a sale.
The Crown Hill Neighborhood Association Monthly Board meeting scheduled for July 28th, 2014 will not be held. Stay tuned. We will post the next board meeting information soon. Thanks for your patience.
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.
Crown Hill Neighbors will be holding it’s combined monthly and annual meeting on Saturday May 17th from Noon to 1 PM in Room 4 of Crown Hill Center.

Sign up today! The 7th Annual Crown Hill Neighborhood Garage Sale is happening on Saturday, July 27th, 2013.
UPDATE: Crown Hill United Methodist Church (14th and 85th) will be participating and has generously offered tables (at no charge) to folk who don’t have a garage or yard they can use. These tables are on a first come, first served basis, and you need to sign up in advance, by calling the church office on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday between 1:30 and 4:30. The church phone # is 206-784-2387.
It’s not too early to be thinking about what you’ll be selling. You’ve probably been tripping over it for months now. Remember what’s junk to you is likely going to be someone else’s treasure!
Last year we had more than 55 participating households, and folks moved a lot of stuff out of their houses and garages on to new owners. It was a great opportunity to talk to neighbors, to cruise other sales, and maybe score a couple of prize finds.
As always, we encourage young entrepreneurs (of all ages) to set up lemonade and cookie stands.
We have an online map and there will be printed maps on the day of the sale.
