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: email@example.com
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.
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.
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.
