My Annual Visit to Trade Secrets

This year’s Trade Secrets rare plant and gardening antiques sale was another huge success.

I attended the annual event in Sharon, Connecticut this past weekend. This philanthropic sale draws growers, dealers, and artisans together every spring to sell unusual plants, garden antiques, and other unique outdoor objects. Trade Secrets was developed by interior designer, Bunny Williams, 15-years ago, when she conducted the very first sale to downsize her collection of plants in her greenhouse. It was a success from the very beginning, and is now run at LionRock Farm, with proceeds going to the Women’s Support Services in northwestern Connecticut.

It's a wonderful sale and a very important cause - I try to attend every year. Read my beautiful story on how Trade Secrets has become one of my favorite field trips of the year in the May issue of Living.

Enjoy these photos, and look back at past blogs for pictures from my other visits to Trade Secrets.
