The Fairfield Women's Exchange shop in Southport has planned its annual sidewalk sale Thursday, July 26, through Saturday, July 28, with markdowns on an array of items.
The nonprofit philanthropic organization said sidewalk items would be discounted 25 percent to 50 percent, including babies' and children's clothing, women's accessories and gifts for the home.
The shop at 332 Pequot Ave. features all new goods, and proceeds from their sale benefit Women's Exchange charities.
Sale hours are Thursday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Among the shop's goods are handmade products from the Haiti Project. The group said proceeds of those sales go directly to the makers in Haiti, the impoverished island nation still struggling with the devastation of a massive 2010 earthquake.
Founded in 1962, the Fairfield Women's Exchange said it has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to more than 80 nonprofit organizations that benefit women and children, most in the Greater Bridgeport area.
Among them are shelters, health care organizations, education initiatives and groups that provide housing and other services.
