Trinity Episcopal Church holds tailgate tag sale

Trinity Episcopal Church in Southport will hold its 3rd annual Trinity Tailgate Tag Sale on Saturday, June 23, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. 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.

More than 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. 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,, Susie Earls Design, and Two Bs Accessories.

A number of food trucks also will 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.

On Friday, June 22, at 6:30 p.m. Trinity will again host the Boutique Preview and Cocktail Party where shoppers can get “first dibs” on designer clothing and accessories, brand name housewares & home décor. Attendees can enjoy signature cocktails and appetizers while they shop. Tickets for the Boutique Preview are $40/person or $75/couple, available at:

Rain date is Sunday, June 24, from noon-4 p.m.
