Garage sales today!

May 21st, 2016 by Mike

Christopher emails:

I live in Maple Leaf and am having a garage sale this Saturday. I found the link on the right-hand side for the garage sales, but couldn’t find anyway to actually list one. Can you help me out navigating this?

We really need to get rid of that link. Christopher’s sale is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 544 N.E. 97th St.

Any others? Send info to tops@mapleleaflife.com

4 yard sales for a cause this weekend

September 12th, 2012 by master

It’s going to be a good weekend to go yard sale hopping, with weather predicted in the mid-60s to low 70s Saturday and Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

And a few of your neighbors are hoping you will do just that. Betty emailed us to let us know about four individual sales from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, on the 500 block of Northeast 92nd Street (between Fifth and Eighth avenues northeast, but you cannot enter off of Fifth). Best part besides the weather is: They’re for a good cause.

Here are the addresses and a few details about what’s for sale:

  • 538 NE 92nd: ’70, ’80s rock memorabilia, including NIRVANA, Princess Diana magazines, clothes, some electronics, a big old Tapestry rug and a few children’s items. A percentage of the proceeds will benefit Teen Feed, which works with homeless youth and is based in the University District.
  • 536 NE 92nd St: earrings, greeting cards, several vintage clothing, French postcards bought by a U.S. soldier during WWII, misc. Proceeds go to University Methodist Temple to buy purchase backpacks, new underwear and socks for homeless people using their services and to the ROOTS program that is headquartered there.
  • 532 NE 92nd: Moving sale – piano, sofa, wood stove, and misc. household items. A percentage of the proceeds also will benefit Teen Feed.
  • 9126 – 5th NE (but enter from NE 92nd):  misc. from 5-6 families to benefit Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership, a youth leadership development organization that provides youth with leadership training, service-learning and motivation-building experiences.

Maple Leaf Garage Sale beckons!

August 11th, 2012 by master

You can expect the usual treasures at today’s Maple Leaf Garage Sale (above photo from the block-long sale on Northeast 94th Street between Roosevelt Way Northeast and 12th Avenue Northeast).

But there are also refreshments to keep you fueled while you shop the day away (photo at right from 1243 N.E. 97th St.).

As well as face painting for a cause at the block-long sale on Northeast 94th Street between Roosevelt and 12th Avenue, where kids are selling goodies and painting faces to raise money for local animal shelters.

And there’s also bigger multiple-family rummage sales at the Maple Leaf Evangelical Church at 96th Street and 12th Avenue (shown above), as well as at the Eagles, 8201 Lake City Way N.E.

Most of the sales continue until 3 or 4 p.m. today. Check out our map, which includes times and other details from many of the individual sales.

Maple Leaf Garage Sale this weekend!

August 9th, 2012 by master

UPDATE: Check out this map of the Maple Leaf Garage Sale!

Maple Leaf Garage Sale returns this weekend, and this time it has a central location at Eagles Mother Aerie No. 1, 8201 Lake City Way N.E., where you can either donate items for them to sell (but no large furniture) or rent your own table for $15.

The Eagles sale is from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. All unsold items must be removed at the end of the day. For more information, contact Faye at 206-762-5125.

There are also plenty of houses and even blocks participating throughout Maple Leaf. We’re assuming the times are also 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., unless otherwise noted:

  • 9101 Roosevelt Way N.E.: “We are in the process of moving from a three bedroom house to a boat, so there will be MANY items for sale.”
  • Block-long sale on 14th Ave. N.E. between 82nd and 85th will include the home numbers 8232, 8228 and 8224 (from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.)
  • 1219 N.E. 96th St.
  • 814 N.E. 80th Street (starting at 9:30 a.m.)
  • Block-long yard sales on 11th Ave. N.E. between 80th and 82nd (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.): “Good stuff!”
  • 1022 N.E. 94th St.  (9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday)
  • 508 N.E. 84th St.
  • Block-long on 95th between Roosevelt and 12th (for the 12th year in a row, Steve adds!)
  • Sale at 8th & 98th is “A handyman’s dream,” Robert says. “I found lots of various nuts, bolts, washers, screws, connectors, piping, pulleys and other stuff while preparing a few things for sale. Almost like a mini Maple Leaf hardware store. Also sprinkler pipe, chairs, and other stuff.”

If you’d like to add your house to the list, email us at tips@mapleleaflife.com.

Community yard sales need your trash/treasures!

July 31st, 2012 by master

With prime yard sale season in full swing, both the Northgate Community Center and the Eagles Mother Aerie No. 1 have planned community garage sales that are in need of your “trash,” otherwise known as somebody else’s treasure.

On Friday, Aug. 3, you can rent a table for $20 to sell your goods from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Yard Sale at Northgate Community Center, 10510 Fifth Ave. N.E. For more information, contact the center at 206-386-4283.

And the following weekend, on Aug. 11, the Eagles order at 8201 Lake City Way N.E. is bringing back the community-wide Maple Leaf Garage Sale. President Dan Kerege is hoping households throughout the neighborhood will participate as they have in past years, but the Eagles also will have its own garage sale that day that will be open to sellers who don’t have the space for their own garage sale.

You can either rent a table for $15, or donate items to the Eagles to add to their own sale. For more information, contact Faye at 206-762-5125.

If you would like to join the community-wide garage sale, email tips@mapleleaflife.com and we’ll add you to the list:

  • 9101 Roosevelt Way N.E.: “We are in the process of moving from a three bedroom house to a boat, so there will be MANY items for sale.”
  • Block-long sale on 14th Ave. N.E. between 82nd and 85th will include the home numbers 8232, 8228 and 8224
  • 1219 N.E. 96th St.
  • 814 NE 80th Stree (starting at 9:30 a.m.)
