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.

And put your dot on our map! The signup form is here: http://crownhillneighbors.org/gsale/signup.html

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.

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.
