SHOP CAROLYNE'S CLOSET: They say one woman's trash is another's treasure, and this, perhaps, could not be more true than it will be Saturday at Carolyne Roehm's tag sale. The arbiter of style is purging Weatherstone, her Connecticut estate, of years of accumulated objects including vases, china, flatware, linens, garden urns and party props.

"It may be an older Baby Boomer thing, but I want to simplify," Roehme wrote in an Evite to friends, "and I see no better way than to start with a bang."

Proceeds will be donated to the Little Guild of Saint Francis animal shelter and local women's support services. Weatherstone is located at 58 South Main in Sharon, Conn., and the sale will occur between 9 a.m and 4 p.m on Saturday and Sunday.
