Minks to Sinks, Connecticut’s largest outdoor tag sale,  will soon raise the white tents on the corner of School Rd. and Rte. 7/Danbury Rd., signaling it’s time to consign, donate and shop, all in support of Family and Children’s Agency.

The sale will be held Oct. 5-7 and donations and consignments of new or gently used items are needed. Contributing to the sale is a great way to clean out closets, garages, and attics.

Shoppers at past sales have scored Lillian August and Mitchell Gold furniture, Waterford crystal, Lenox china, Trek bikes, Cuisinart and KitchenAid appliances, Simon Pearce lamps, antiques and collectibles, kids toys, and clothing from brands like Lululemon, Brooks Brothers, Vineyard Vines, Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer, The North Face, and more, all at bargain prices. With over hundreds of thousands of items, the sale offers something for everyone.

Volunteers will be accepting donations and consignments at the Minks to Sinks site under the huge white tents during the following on-site consignment and donation hours:

  • Tuesday, Oct. 1, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 2, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., and 4-6 p.m.
  • Thursday, Oct. 3, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Anyone wishing to donate or consign items is encouraged to go to the Minks to Sinks website, to review the list of items accepted before bringing their merchandise to the tents.

Proceeds from Minks to Sinks benefit Family & Children’s Agency, the Norwalk-based nonprofit organization that provides social services to individuals and families in need in the surrounding communities.
