The Minks to Sinks organization is staffed with more than 160 volunteers of all ages from the community of Wilton. Many of these women have been giving their time for more than 30 years. During the semi-annual sales volunteers work to price, ticket, organize and display thousands of items that are donated or consigned for the sale. This usually includes hauling heavy furniture, rugs, and lawn mowers to their designated locations under the sale tents or in the outdoor areas. These volunteers don the Minks to Sinks trademark red, white and blue ticking stripe aprons and work from morning to night in preparation for the sale, during the sale days, and cleaning up after the sale, rain or shine.
Since 1958, Minks to Sinks has used the logo affectionately referred to as "Mrs. Sminks" to promote the sale. "Mrs. Sminks", created by Whitney Darrow, the noted New Yorker cartoonist, has been described as "the woman who has everything. She consigns it donates or buys it at the semi-annual Minks to Sinks sale".
