White Elephant Sale 2023

July 14, 2023 - July 15, 2023

Every year, on a weekend in early July, the Ladies Benevolent Society (LBS) holds its White Elephant Sale (WES) on the grounds of the First Congregational Church of Old Lyme. This is a huge fundraiser that grows in size every year, allowing the LBS to fund more than 25 nonprofit organizations across our region and around the world. The popular annual sale began in 1936; the only years the sale was not held were 2020 and 2021, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The White Elephant Sale (WES) is one of the major annual events that appears on the church’s and town’s calendar. While there are other garage and rummage sales held by other organizations throughout the year, few can match the size, color, camaraderie and excitement of this one. Residents and visitors will often plan their summer vacations around it.

Friday, July 14, 9  -2 p.m.
Saturday, July 15, 8 – 12pm

*Intake Days: 6/29. 6/30, 7/1, 7/5, 7/6, 7/7
