From Minks to Sinks
Tuesday, September 28, 2010
Think RECYCLE. Think GREEN. Think CHARITABLY.
It's time for Wilton's largest semi-annual tag sale where you'll find everything including possibly the kitchen sink. It's also a perfect opportunity for you to get rid of your gently used items you no longer need including furniture, shoes, clothing, house wares, bikes, toys, etc. All proceeds from the Minks to Sinks sale benefit Family & Children’s Agency who’s services provide foster care, services for seniors, adoption, homeless services and much more.
Minks to Sinks has its roots in the first rummage sale organized by volunteers in Wilton in 1931 to benefit the Nursing Association's Well Child Program. The name Minks to Sinks was coined in 1952, when a volunteer at a pre-rummage sale meeting brought along a mink coat to donate to the sale.Someone else had donated a sink, and another volunteer suggested that they name the sale, Minks to Sinks. The name stuck, and to this day, the sale has always included at least one mink and more than a few sinks.
Minks to Sinks raises funds to support the Family & Children's Agency, Inc., a voluntary not-for-profit, non-sectarian family service agency based in Norwalk, CT. Since 1942 FCA has been offering help and hope to individuals and families dealing with life's transitions and crises.
