Each year, neighbors and friends can find all kinds of unique clothing, gifts and housewares from the block sale that happens on Bigelow Avenue North. Just a quick, 7-block walk east of Queen Anne Avenue North, Bigelow has some beautiful historic neighborhood homes and condo buildings. For the past 22 years, its residents have thrown a huge block sale as they clean out their closets for spring, offer some unique treasures to find, and engage the community in a fun neighborhood event.
The 23rd Annual Bigelow Block Sale is on Saturday, June 4th, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. It sprawls from Prospect Street all the way up past Lynn Street along Bigelow Ave N, and its side streets. Participants include residents of homes along Bigelow and its side streets. You can register here if that includes you!
Approximately 50 homes participate each year, and each must pay a $25 fee to do so. This fee goes to the Queen Anne Helpline to support their efforts providing emergency housing, food, and basic needs assistance to struggling families and individuals. So each year, the Bigelow Block Sale offers an opportunity to support our local nonprofit in addition to finding some great treasures!
This sale comes just two days after the seasonal opening of the Queen Anne Farmers Market! Lots to look forward to in the neighborhood this month.
