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.

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!

Olympic Manor Garage Sale, Sept 10-11, 2011

One of the larger housing developments in Crown Hill is Olympic Manor, an association of 350 homes. The annual garage sale in the Manor will take place on Sept 10 and 11.  Most of the action is on Saturday so get there from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for best selection. On Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. come back for the last minute bargains. Typically 40-60 homes participate. The Manor extends from NW 85th Street to NW 94th St and from 24th Ave NW to 20th Ave NW.

Garage Sale and Night Out Wrap-up, 2011

We had great turnouts for both the Crown Hill Garage Sale on July 23rd and Night Out Seattle on August 2nd this year!

Garage Sale 2011

The 5th Annual Crown Hill Neighbors Garage Sale on July 23rd had 67 advance sign-ups this year. There were actually more sales and free sales. I made it to 46 of the sales.  My favorite sale this year was the 8 year old boy who decided to have a sale when a couple of his neighbors started putting their wares out. He was trying to raise $40 to help his sister replace her stolen bike. I checked back a week later and he made his goal!  There was great food to be had including Mt Fuji hot dogs, “possibly the best chocolate chip cookies in Crown Hill,” lemonade, and goodies galore (those lemon bars were really, really good). Of the 67 listings we had, 5 wouldn’t fit on our map, but we made them honorary Crown Hillers for the day. Traffic slowed to a crawl on many streets with multiple sales as cruisers walked from sale to sale. The folks on 16th between 87th and 89th deserve a special mention — they sure know how to have a multi-family garage sale — every one had a mix of great merchandise at bargain prices — and everybody was having fun talking to each other.  Thanks all and if you have comments, please get back to us at garagesale@crownhillneighbors.org

Two Young Artists Discuss Their Art on 12th Ave

We had over a dozen block parties that I am aware of.  In my immediate neighborhood there were 4 parties blocking the streets, and there were a number of folk who walked to adjoining parties to share in the camaraderie and festivities. Children were seen zipping up and down the street on bikes, scooters, and foot as they enjoyed the freedom from vehicle traffic for an evening. Dogs were welcome at several of the parties (and at one, the whole group of herding dogs took noisy exception in unison to a child’s attempt to jump on a pogo stick). As always, the food was fabulous, and as is the case in potlucks, there was more than enough to go around. We’ve had a rough summer with crime, and it was great to see folk getting to know each other. MyBallard had an article featuring various parties around Ballard, and Crown Hill scored two pictures including the one at right! Next year, we’ve got to invite Engine 35 to come visiting!

As I write this at 8:30 PM on July 23rd, NOAA is calling for a sunny day on Saturday July 24th with a high of 78 F. The weather couldn’t be better … not too hot … not too cold. Get the sunscreen out, and enjoy a fabulous day buying and selling in Crown Hill!

With more than 55 participating sales, this is the most successful sale to date. If you are cruising the sales, please encourage our youngest entrepreneurs by patronizing their lemonade and refreshment stands. Also please make sure not to block access to other driveways, and most of all, watch carefully for the extra pedestrian traffic.  Maps of the sale site addresses and listings are available here. A limited number of printed maps will be available at Crown Hill Center (9250 14th Ave NW).

And in case you don’t yet have one of our award-winning Crown Hill Neighbors t-shirts, you can pick yours up at the sale being held at 10034 13th Ave NW!  If you live in Crown Hill, you won’t be the first on your block with this fashion statement!

I’ve just closed off the input form, so if you missed getting your sale listed, you can likely just set your stuff out and put up a sign, and there will be traffic.

Best of luck to all! Hope to see you there!
