Recipe for a good garage sale? Take one large, master-planned community and put in the community’s governing CCR’s (Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions) that garage sales are only allowed twice a year; then have the community ROA advertise the big garage sale in all area newspapers, including Bellevue, and you create one busy place!
This Friday and Saturday, May 16th and 17th, from 9AM-4PM, the first of the two annual (allowed) garage sales happens all over the streets of Snoqualmie Ridge. Participating homes will have red balloons attached somewhere on their house.
Be warned, streets can sometimes getting a tricky to navigate as many shoppers drive like slow ‘looky-loos,” examining sales from a distance, trying to determine if they should stop and shop. The area around Cascade View Elementary can get especially congested as school releases early on Fridays – at 12:55PM.
The sale may officially begin at 9AM, but it is not uncommon to have garage sale ‘pros’ out early scouting.
Happy Garage Sale Weekend everyone. Look for the red balloons and I hope you find some treasures!
