Thrifty Ray brought up a good point about a month ago that we havenít had any face to face events amongst the bloggers and readers on Saving Advice. Iíd like to rectify that by inviting anyone who is reading this blog, especially in the Seattle area, to join me at the Greenwood Garage Sale on Saturday, April 19th.
For more information about this little soiree:
Usually over 100 families participate. In addition to the yard sales, the Phinney Neighborhood Association holds a flea market, the Greenwood Fire Dept holds a tour of their digs, and a number of kid entrepreneurs sell cookies and lemonade. Itís a 30 block square area so there will be some walking, but the #5 bus runs every 20-30 minutes.
Weíll meet at 9 am on the 19th at the little park by the Phinney Neighborhood Association on 67th and Phinney Avenue, North Seattle. The meeting site looks like this:
which is right next to the Phinney Neighborhood Association:
And coffee's 30 ft away. How's that for convenience!
I will provide paper maps of the event.
Wear comfortable shoes, bring along a bag, a bit of money if you are in a shopping mood, and/or a digital camera. Since this is a frugal event, bring a lunch if you like. There are a couple of grocery stores in the neighborhood.
If you are interested in joining me, please reply in the comments. Hope to put some faces to usernames!
