Garage Sale Season Begins

The season of good weather starts the season of cleaning and subsequently, Garage Sales. Your old junk becomes a treasure for someone else. If you are like me, I downsize just to make room for the new treasures I am certain I am unable to live without. Ahhh - the cycle of shopping bliss, when you can get a bag full of goodies with just a hand full of dollars and some change.

This weekend, get ready for two great Garage Sale opportunities. One lesser known sale is an annual event over on Garden Ave. North. The family at 223 Garden Ave. N. have a yearly garage sale that reaches nearly epic proportions, as they plan year round for the event, the proceeds which go to help raise their handicapped grandchild. So big, the neighbor's house will be used this year as well. This begins Saturday, April 25 - but you might consider swinging by today to see if there is any action earlier than that.

The second is the Annual Community Garage Sale at the Renton Community Center.This goes from 9 am - 1 pm on this Saturday and hosts table after table of goodies and of course, entrance is free. You never know what new, slightly used, vintage must-haves you might find. With this good weather (maybe? still holding?), what an excellent morning outing it will be. Support a local barrista (Mike's Liberty Cafe or the the still in business Jet City come to mind ) and with your caffeine securely in hand, go and get your shopping groove on!
