Trade Secrets 2022

After a two year hiatus due to Covid-19, the Trade Secrets Rare Plant and Garden Antiques Sale is back - one of my favorite events of the year.

I always make it a point to attend Trade Secrets every spring. This past Saturday, a group of colleagues and friends accompanied me to the event in the picturesque town of Lakeville, Connecticut. The philanthropic sale draws growers, dealers, and artisans together to sell unusual plants, garden antiques, and other unique outdoor objects. Trade Secrets was developed by interior designer Bunny Williams in the year 2000 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 the proceeds go to the Women’s Support Services in northwestern Connecticut.

It's a wonderful sale and a very important cause - here are some photos. Enjoy.
