Twice a year, shoppers line up as early as 5:30 a.m. along Kristine Lilly Way and wait for the gate to open at the Minks to Sinks sale. The Spring Minks to Sinks sale starts this Saturday, May 6, at 9 a.m., and Janel Cassara, the Minks to Sinks 2017 co-chair, expects the line to form just as early as it has in the past.
“I know of many shoppers who plan their entire work schedules around Minks to Sinks sale dates. They would not miss it for anything!” she says. “It’s the best place to find great deals on gently used and new items, from kitchen and household items, to outdoor furniture, sports equipment, seasonal clothing, electronics, collectibles, and so much more, including top quality brand names. And we always have a few minks and sinks!”
Both Cassara, and her co-chair, Michelle Beck, note that the sale wouldn’t happen without the hundreds of thousands of fabulous items that area residents bring to the sale to donate and consign or the hard work and long hours that the over 190 volunteers put in to organize, price and display all of this merchandise. “Minks to Sinks has been supporting recycling and reusing years before the phrase ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ became an environmental mantra,” explains Beck.
Proceeds of Minks to Sinks benefit the Family and Children’s Agency, the Norwalk-based non-profit organization offering many important programs to help families in need. The 2017 Minks to Sinks Spring sale opens at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 6. Bargain days are Sunday, May 7 from noon-4 p.m. and Monday, May 8 from 9 a.m.-noon.
The sale is located at the intersection of School Rd. and Rte. 7–just look for the big white tents. For more information and directions, please visit the Minks to Sinks website.
