So spring cleaning time is here and with everyone looking to clean-up and clear-out their Connecticut apartments, it’s also time for tag sale season! Over the next few months, there will be dozens of local tag sales hosted by individual families, neighborhood groups with multiple families, local churches and even businesses. Scouting the tag sales in the area is kind of like a treasure hunt. You never know what you’re going to find.
