Westchase Spring Garage Sale Is May 6
Throw open your garages and let the spring cleaning begin!
The Westchase Spring Garage Sale is Saturday, May 6. The sale is one of two such events held annually on the first Saturdays of May and October. (The Westchase Fall Garage Sale is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017; please mark your calendars.)
The garage sale hours run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. In order to improve traffic flow and access by emergency vehicles, the Westchase Community Association (WCA) asks that residents not sell food items or collect outside items for sale as part of a large, charitable event. While there is no charge for Westchase residents to participate in the event, those residents who wanted items to appear on the Big Ticket List needed to e-mail their information to the association manager’s office at email@example.com by Tuesday, May 2.
Printable copies of the Big Ticket List will be available on http://www.WestchaseWOW.com and www.westchasewca.com. They will also available at the Westchase Swim and Tennis Center.
All unsold items can also be donated to Goodwill, which will have two donation locations around Westchase from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. On the day of the garage sale Goodwill will have trailers from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the health clinic parking lot, located at 10509 W. Linebaugh Ave. Each weekend Goodwill also has trailers at the Primrose School, 12051 Whitmarsh Lane, from 8 a.m.-6 p.m.
Donations of clothing and household items will support Goodwill's services for people who are disabled, elderly or unemployed. Goodwill cannot accept mattresses, box springs or televisions. They will provide a receipt for tax purposes.
