A year ago, the ninth annual Capitol Hill Garage Sale Day took place. If there is going to be a tenth, we’re sorry to say it won’t be this week. Meanwhile, as a reminder that there are still plenty of good things happening in Cal Anderson Park, here are a few photographs from last weekend’s Jockstraps & Glitter charity kickball game. Who won? Who knows — but money was raised for a good cause. You can also give to the AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway here.
From its earliest days, CHGSD was extremely grassroots and low overhead. It grew a bit thanks to help from neighborhood nonprofits joining CHS in wrangling participants and helping nail down space every year for the central community sale space. In 2019, the grassroots effort never really grew. CHS has been busy CHSing and our past partners also have had busy years.
Will there be a Capitol Hill Garage Sale Day in 2019? We’re certainly going to miss summer. But we’re looking at options for something different to keep the, um, streak alive as the event reaches its tenth year. Stay tuned.
