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.

Crown Hill Neighbors — all neighbors meeting and more! May 17th.

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.

Sign up here, and happy garage sale-ing!

Good Weather

The 6th Annual Crown Hill Neighbors Garage Sale is shaping up to be a fantastic event. Good weather (not too hot, not too cold, no rain). Lots of great stuff out there. Whether you’re looking to outfit a “man-cave” with a free 5 piece sectional couch (pink), or looking for treasures on a budget (“nothing over a dollar”), or browse the (in)famous West Crown Hill 16th Ave sales, there is something for you!  Harbor Church and Literacy Council of Seattle are participating with proceeds to their charitable works.  Lots of lemonade and refreshment stands are there (see the yellow dots on the map).  And if you’re interested in showing off that Crown Hill Pride ™, we’ve got our fabulous Crown Hill t-shirts available (kids: $5; old design: $10; new design: $15) for purchase at the sale at 9020 12th Ave.

You can still sign up until 5 PM today (July 27th).  Signups are now closed. Map and listing is available here and a limited number will be available (after 8:30 AM on Saturday) by the West entrance of Crown Hill Center (9250 14th Ave NW).

Happy Sale-ing to all, buyers and sellers!
