We’re one month away from the 2012 Capitol Hill Garage Sale Day. Which means, for many of you, we’re about three and a half weeks away from you deciding you really, really, really want to hold a sale and be part of the fun. Go for it. Live your life your own way. But if you would like to get a jump on things, sign up to be part of CHGSD today. You can add your own garage sale held anywhere around the Hill to the roster (for free!) or sign up for a space in the community sale lot (for 20 bucks!) at the future home of Broadway Hill Park at Federal and Republican. Thanks to the friends of the park and our pals at Capitol Hill-based Tieclip for helping out. All proceeds go to support the new Broadway Hill greenspace. By the way, if you want a warm-up for the garage sale shopping extravaganza, the West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day is this Saturday.
We’ll also be celebrating the one-month milestone at today’s May CHS happy hour at Bimbos on E Pike starting at 4:30p.
For more details on the Saturday, June 9th Capitol Hill Garage Sale Day, check out capitolhillgaragesale.com – You can also help out by downloading the 2012 poster and printing a few copies to share with neighbors.
Here’s how to participate:
- Fill out the form to tell us about your June 9th sale.
- We’ll compile a list and create a map to let everybody know where to shop.
- We’ll have a community location to host sales for apartment dwellers, etc. at Federal and Republican.
- Clean out your closets.
- Have a fun sale, meet your neighbors, take pictures.
It’s that easy.
