West Seattle will hold garage sales this Saturday (May 11) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.—ALL of West Seattle.
300 garage sales will take over the neighborhood from Alki to Fauntleroy, and with sun in the forecast, it looks like the perfect way to deck out your home and wardrobe for cheap.
In the maps above, each garage sale provides a general overview of what it’s selling so you don’t waste time at the wrong places. All thrifting is like searching for needles a haystack, but these maps let you search with a metal detector. Specific descriptions look like:

Sales rep samples on sale at below-wholesale prices. Under Armour, Champion, Gear for Sports, Alternative Apparel & Techstyles
#153: 3202 39th Ave SW

West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day started in 2005 as a community-building activity, and it’s since grown into one of my favorite neighborhood events. You can find anything from antique, museum-worthy needles to state-of-the-art, priced-to-sell needles in these haystacks. Plus, you get to meet your neighbors!
It’s better than Craigslist!
