Minks to Sinks seeks merchandise

The largest outdoor tag sale in Connecticut, Wilton’s own Minks to Sinks, just got larger. This year, shoppers at the spring sale, which opens Saturday, May 7, will find more than 14,000 square feet of new and gently used merchandise under the tents.

“We’ve rented even larger tents this year and reconfigured their layout to accommodate more merchandise and protect it in the event of inclement weather,” said Ada Mayer, the 2016 Minks to Sinks chairman. The tents will go up April 28, and consignments and donations will be accepted at the intersection of School Road and Route 7 beginning next week:

  • Tuesday, May 3, 10-2;

  • Wednesday, May 4, 10-2 and 4-6;

  • Thursday, May 5, 10-2.  

More than 200 volunteers will be on hand throughout the week to take in, price, organize and display all the donated and consigned items that come in. The Minks to Sinks website, minkstosinks.info, lists items the sale does not accept.

For more than 84 years, Minks to Sinks has offered shoppers bargains on new and gently used household items, furniture, luggage, garden tools, kids toys, sports equipment, seasonal clothing and of course, minks and sinks.

The sale opens Saturday, May 7, at 9. Bargain days are Sunday, May 8, from noon to 4, and Monday, May 9, from 9 to noon.
