SOUTHPORT, CT – Back by popular demand, Trinity Episcopal Church in Southport is once again hosting the one-of-a-kind “Trinity Tailgate Tag Sale” on Saturday, June 10th from 9am-4pm. 
The event offers sellers the opportunity to buy a spot in the Church’s spacious parking lot in downtown Southport, pack up their cars with items they would like to sell, and benefit from the enormous promotion and customer traffic being generated by Trinity. The parking lot is located on the corner of Pequot Avenue and Center Street in Southport. Residents of Fairfield, Bridgeport, Westport, Southport and the surrounding area are invited to buy a “spot” and sell their items, whatever they may be.  All are welcome to participate. There is no need to be a member of the Church. 

Timed “after Spring Cleaning,” this year’s event marks the second time that Trinity will be holding its Tailgate Tag Sale. Last year, over 80 families set up spots and sold such items as costume jewelry, women’s and men’s designer clothing, hand bags, scarves and accessories, china, silver, housewares, antiques, children’s party clothes, kayaks, mountain bikes and more (see photos).  Last year also included a number of Southport and Fairfield-area merchants such as Lattice House, Mama Jane’s, Lion’s Paw, Nutrition Kitchen, Two Bs and others.

The event offers the opportunity for sellers to earn cash from the proceeds of the items they sell. Trinity benefits from the proceeds of the parking spot purchases.
“Last year’s Tailgate Tag Sale gave our neighbors a unique reason to come together and celebrate our community in a new way,” said Peggy Hodgkins, Rector of Trinity Episcopal Church. “This year’s Tag Sale builds on that success and gives everyone a give their used items a new life. Best of all, the proceeds of the parking spot sales are used to fund the mission and ministries of Trinity Episcopal Church, Southport.”
