Minks to Sinks takes items to sell

When they see the huge white tents going up at the intersection of School Road and Route 7, adjacent the tennis courts, new residents might think the circus is coming to town. But that’s the telltale sign another Minks to Sinks sale — the largest tag sale in Connecticut — is about to start.

But a tag sale needs something to sell so Minks to Sinks will be accepting consignments and donations at the tents on Tuesday, Sept. 27, from 10 to 2, Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 10 to 2 and 4 to 6, and Thursday, Sept. 29, from 10 to 2.

Anyone wishing to consign or donate items is encouraged to go to the Minks to Sinks website at minkstosinks.info to review the list of items that are not accept before bringing their merchandise to the tents.

The fall sale opens at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1. On Sunday, Oct. 2, from noon to 4, all merchandise is 50% off. Shoppers can fill up a bag for $7 on Monday, Oct. 3, from 9 to noon.
