In just a few weeks, the tents will go up next to the Wilton High School tennis courts, but believe it or not the preparations need to start now for Minks to Sinks, Connecticut’s largest outdoor tag sale and a Wilton institution. For those motivated to do some spring-cleaning, Minks to Sinks offers in-home consigning and the early birds can get a jump by scheduling in-home consigning now.

Anyone with more than 10 items to consign, excluding clothing, can arrange to have Minks to Sinks volunteers come to their house and tag the items to be consigned; then the consignor just has to drop off the items the week before the sale.

Why not turn items you don’t want or don’t have a use for anymore into cash, or donate them so that someone else might be able to use them? Minks to Sinks has been providing a way for people to reuse and recycle merchandise for more than 84 years. Thanks to all the great merchandise that residents consign and donate, it has been able to offer shoppers bargains on everything for their home and family, including of course, mink coats and kitchen sinks.

In addition, the proceeds from the sale benefit Family & Children’s Agency, the Norwalk-based non-profit agency that provides much needed social services to individuals and families in need in the surrounding communities. The Minks to Sinks Sale is truly a win-win for everyone.
