On September 22 and 23, For Goodness Sake, a local 501c3 nonprofit that provides donated furniture and household goods to individuals and families transitioning to independent living, will be hosting a community tag sale at the Bristol Mum Festival. Individuals can rent a 10’ x 10’ space for only $25 and offer their tag sale items to the thousands of people expected at this year’s Mum Festival.
For Goodness Sake will also be selling items at the tag sale, with all proceeds and donations going to support the organization.
The tag sale will be located at the tennis courts at the corner of South Street and Mellen Street and will run both Saturday, September 22, and Sunday, September 23, from noon to 6 pm.
For Goodness Sake provides direct aid, such as furniture and household goods, making an empty space into a home.
The organization accepts gently used furniture and household goods from the community and distributes them to people in need, serving families and individuals in Bristol, Burlington, Farmington, Harwinton, New Britain, Plainville, Plantsville, Plymouth, Southington, West Hartford, and Wolcott. Clients must be referred from a partner agency.
