Pomfret celebrates a milestone with its 15th Annual Town Wide Tag Sale on Saturday, May 1, 2021. The all-volunteer Pomfret Proprietors Association created the region’s first and best town wide sale, which draws thousands of visitors to the Quiet Corner for great deals supporting local organizations, and safe, socially distanced outdoor fun.
Starting at 7AM, purchase a map to guide you to dozens of participating residences, businesses and organizations throughout town. A Town Wide Tag Sale Map makes bargain hunting a breeze. Print maps will be sold for $2 each at Pomfret Community School. Local businesses will offer 15th Anniversary Specials in coupons that will be handed out with the map. Participating businesses include The Vanilla Bean Café, Pizza 101, MaJilly, Baker’s Dozen, Garden Gate Florist, Pomfret Spirit Shoppe, Belinda Culp Realtor Berkshire Hathaway, and Watercure Farm Distillery.
Popular annual group sales and fundraisers include The Friends of Pomfret Public Library’s Used Book Sale, which will be held at the Old Pomfret Townhouse, 11 Town House Drive, from 7AM - 12PM. It will feature current fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, and biographies. Prices range from 50¢ to $1 plus a $5 Bag Sale from 11AM - noon. The Windham Tolland 4-H Camp will host a sale on April 30 (9am -1pm) and May 1 (8am – 1pm) at the Horse Camp (326 Taft Pond Road). Preview their on-line auction items while you are at the in-person sale. The on-line auction runs from April 30 - May 8 @ https://www.biddingowl.com/WindhamCounty4HFoundation.
The Pomfret Lions Club and Pomfret Horse & Trail Association will also host group sales in town. Connecticut Audubon Society Center at Pomfret will be raising funds for sanctuary and trail maintenance. They will have a wide variety of items for sale on 218 Day Road. Consult your map for many more tag sale locations all over town.
Every year, the Pomfret Proprietors Association gives back to the community with this event. For 2021, profits from map sales and registrations will be donated to the Pomfret Public Library’s capital campaign for an expansion project.
Connecticut residents and visitors should continue taking precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In accordance with Governor Lamont's Executive Orders, the Pomfret Proprietors request that all Tag Sale visitors and hosts practice social distancing, wear a face mask while on people’s private property and to please use hand-sanitizer before exiting your car.
