Every year I try to make it out to the West Seattle and Greenwood Neighborhood Community Garage Sales. These are two of my favorite spring Seattle community events. Dozens of families host garage/yard sales on the same day. Its a great opportunity to get out in the community, meet neighbors, do some healthy purging if you're selling, or bargaining if you're buying! I think a similar even would be awesome in Columbia City/Hillman City if enough households were interested in doing a garage sale on the same day — perhaps in Mid-May.
What do you all think? Is anyone interested?
Here are links to the other neighborhood sales I was talking about —
