Many of our customers wait all year for the great sales we hold through the summer, particularly in August. Our Bag Sale has been a tradition for many years, and has always provided excellent bargains for shoppers, while expediting a complete clean-out of The Turnover’s racks and shelves, so we could bring out our new merchandise for Fall. Last year we experimented with holding the Bag Sale a week earlier than usual, and it was a huge success. People were able to get great bargains on summer items while it was still hot enough to enjoy them. And we were then able to bring out our Fall merchandise in time for back-to-school shopping.
Our Bag Sale – a complete sell-out of everything in the Turnover Shop – will begin on Saturday, August 16th at 10 AM. We will provide large garbage bags, and customers will be charged $20 for each filled bag. The Sale will continue on Monday the 18th ($15 per bag), Tuesday the 19th ($10 per bag) and Wednesday the 20th ($5) per bag. The Turnover will be closed for cleaning and restocking from Thursday August 21st – Sunday August 24th.
And then, when we reopen on August 25th, we will feature the sweaters and jackets and home goods that we’ve been keeping in our inventory all summer. If this revised schedule continues to be helpful to the community and works well for our volunteers, we will adhere to it for many years to come.
The Turnover Shop is an award-winning community organization, pledged to support agencies that serve the health and education needs of Wilton and our surrounding towns. Throughout nearly seventy years of operation, hundreds of volunteers have contributed their efforts towards making The Turnover a success, and thousands of satisfied customers have validated their hard work.
We carry a full line of women's, men's and children's clothing, shoes, antiques, housewares, games, books, jewelry, and small furnishings. During the past months we’ve sold garden furniture, a pair of French sterling opera glasses, antique china, a stuffed deer’s head, and a grandfather clock. We have helped furnish campus apartments and the first apartments of recent grads. Many of our customers make The Turnover their first stop before embarking on a shopping expedition, and not only find the very item they seek, but others they didn’t know they needed until they saw them.
Now that you’ve visited our website, we hope you’ll also visit our shop. We are located in the heart of Wilton Center, surrounded by fine stores and restaurants, and are worth a small detour off well-traveled Route 7. Please call if you have any questions, and speak to one of our volunteers at 203-762-3160203-762-3160.
