Trinity Tailgate Tag Sale Set for June 23

SOUTHPORT, CT – Back by popular demand, Trinity Episcopal Church's Annual Trinity Tailgate Tag Sale returns on Saturday, June 23rd from 9:00am - 2:30pm to benefit its community outreach ministries.

The Tag Sale is held in the church’s parking lot, located in the village of Southport at the corner of Pequot Avenue and Center Street.

The Tag Sale offers sellers the convenience of simply buying a Parking Spot and selling their goods, with Trinity providing all advertising and social media promotion to drive buyers to the event. Trinity welcomes all area individuals, families, organizations and local merchants to participate in this fundraiser.

Over 70 families participated in last year’s Tag Sale, selling their designer clothing, handbags, costume jewelry, children’s party clothes, china, silver, housewares, antiques, sporting goods and more (see photos). Last year’s event also included local merchants A Little Square, Bespoke Designs of Westport, DFM Stationery, the Fairfield Women’s Exchange, Gells, Little River Farm, SouthernAirs.com, Susie Earls Design and Two Bs Accessories

Parking Spots are $100 each and are available to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis. Parking Spots are available at: http://bit.ly/TrinityTagSale2018

A number of food trucks will also be onsite during the tag sale.

“With Trinity’s Tailgate Tag Sale, our parishioners and neighbors can come together and celebrate our community in a fun way,” said Peggy Hodgkins, Rector of Trinity Episcopal Church. “Everyone has an opportunity to give their used items a new life and to find rare bargains. Best of all, the proceeds of the parking spot sales are used to fund the ministries of our mission partners.”

Among the groups aided by Trinity’s Outreach program are Bridgeport Rescue Mission, Center for Family Justice, Council for Churches of Greater Bridgeport, Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services (IRIS), Parish Court, St. Luke’s/St. Paul’s Food Pantry, and many more.
