Trade Secrets 2017

If my schedule allows I always try to fit in a visit to the annual Trade Secrets rare plant and gardening antiques sale - it’s among my favorite events of the year.

This weekend, thousands of visitors attended Trade Secrets in the picturesque town of Sharon, Connecticut. This philanthropic sale draws more than 60-vendors - specialized growers, small nursery owners, antiques dealers, and artisans. They gather together to sell unusual plants, garden antiques, and other unique outdoor objects. Trade Secrets was developed by interior designer, Bunny Williams, 17-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. Enjoy these photos.
