The signage is up, sales begin Saturday!

The annual community sale provides residents with a wide selection of trees, wreaths, and garlands – conveniently located next to the Upper Queen Anne Safeway, and with all proceeds benefitting the Helpline and Troop 72.

The lot was busy today with volunteers setting up the signage and sweeping up Christmas tree needles and trimmings as trees of all different types (Noble, Tannenbaum, Fraser, Douglas Fir, Norway Spruce) were moved into place. This year, the lot returns the north side of Safeway, bordered by 1st Ave N to the back and Boston St to the side.

Hours of Operation

  • Monday – Thursday 2-8pm
  • Friday 2-9pm
  • Saturday 9-9pm
  • Sunday 9-8pm

The tree lot is staffed by volunteers, and they can always use a few more! If you’re interested in volunteering, please call 206-282-1540.

Meanwhile, plan to spend Saturday shopping small at our local Queen Anne businesses, stop by Queen Anne Book Company for Indies First, and swing by the Tree Lot for your holiday decor!
