West Seattle Blog… | HAPPENS NOW: The 2022 West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day is on!


(From Haley to Sale #54, 4222 SW Hill)

As at the right time, the sun appeared a few minutes before the official start of West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day at 9 a.m. Forecasters – and radars – say the morning showers have mostly passed. Some sellers are undercover anyway, like Elise to Sale #3055643 47th Ave SW:

This is meant to help Elise’s parents downsize: “Please, please, please come buy their…stuff.” We add more photos ([email protected]) and we also have a team visiting some sales for Instagram Stories which you will find on @westseattleblog.

9:23 a.m.: The first selloff we tried to stop at was just coming together – which is understandable since the weather took a while to dry out. (What @WestSeaWX says is indeed what is happening.) But most are operational – here’s a pic Christina sent from Sale #30 at 2311 SW Myrtle:
