While COVID-19 has made the traditional fall dinner auction impossible this year, “Second Hand in the First Town” promises to be a fun and safe way to raise badly needed funds to support Society programs. But it won’t happen without you!

A community event, the tag sale will also include local partners at House of Books and Games selling used history books and other items to benefit the Society, the Music School at Sound Crossing providing musical performances, The Bean @ 226 providing coffee and refreshments, and the Windsor Discovery Center and Montessori School’s tag sale fundraiser next door. Lots to see and do, all in one place!

When is the Tag Sale?

Friday, November 6, 4 to 6pm – Early bird special ($10 admission)
Saturday, November 7, 8am to 4pm – Public tag sale (Free admission)
Sunday, November 8, 10am to 2pm – Half price day! (Free admission)

How can you help?

Save your “stuff” and donate it to the Tag Sale – Your donations will make $$ for WHS! Save your gently used items. We’ll take:

  • household furnishings
  • cookware, china, utensils, and glassware
  • toys and games
  • books and DVDs
  • tools
  • house plants
  • clothing
  • holiday decorations
  • antiques and other items (no junk, please!)
  • home décor
  • costume jewelry & accessories

Please ensure donations are clean and serviceable. Drop your donations off at Windsor Historical Society from 10:00 – 4:00, October 28 thru November 3.

Volunteer to work the tag sale – Your time is valuable and can make a difference. We need help receiving and pricing donations, selling and bagging items, and helping customers between October 28 and November 8. Interested volunteers should contact Agnes Pier at 860-335-4235 or at ampier@sbcglobal.net.

Tell everyone you know and bring your friends to the tag sale! – Everything must go! It only makes money if people buy things. Come find some great bargains right in time for the holidays.
