Tag sales up the wazoo

The First United Methodist Church will be holding its annual tag sale next weekend. Household goods, toys, books and more will be available. Get some hot dogs and beverages while you browse: yum! In addition, the United Methodist Women will host a bake table.

Date: Saturday, Sept. 6
Time: 9:00 AM ā€“ 2:00 PM
Location: 24 Old Church Street

Christ Lutheran Church is also holding its annual tag sale, but it’ll be the weekend after next. They’ll have donuts, bagels, hot dogs, coffee and soda, too! Early risers get the best selection. Last year we got a free television, complete with faux-wood paneling and the highest quality electronics you could buy… back when it was made, in 1983. Regardless, the deals are great!

Date: Saturday, Sept. 13
Time: 8:30 AM ā€“ 1:30 PM
Location: 300 Washington Street

I think I may have also seen a sign for a tag sale at the South Congregational Church at the end of Main Street. Keep an eye out!

And fix your peepers on St. Sebastian Church, on Washington Street, because they may also be hosting a tag sale in the coming weeks.

    damn, I was hoping these wouldn’t be advertised, they’re usually the best deals of the fall tag sale season. Last year I got a huuumongous couch with 2 reclining chairs from one of the churches. For $10. Won’t say which one though…

    PSHAW. Middletown LOVES tag sales, so on any given weekend during the fall there are at least 5 tag sales within walking distance let me tell you how it’s done.First of all, make it the first part of your day. If you’re getting lunch you’ve already missed most of the good stuff. Now that I’ve graduated and entered an even fiercer market, I’ve rolled out of bed at 6:45 a few times. You can nap later.The Middletown Press is the best place to look, but on campus craigslist is a little easier to find. You’ll rarely find a sale that’s not in either of those (and if you do it’s probably tiny). Plan out your route with mapquest or whatever before you get moving. I’d recommend finding a friend with a car to buddy with you. I’d double recommend somebody with a navigation system, then you can go ANYWHERE to get your crap.Couches (if your standards are low) I think you should hold out on because you can find them on the side of the road oftenAnd don’t underestimate the flea markets. There’s an excellent one right by Home Depot. It opens on Thursday so you can take care of that earlier (though some vendors won’t be opent hen) Unfortunately, I never found out where most of the good outdoor ones were aside from one outside of Wallingford.
