I’ve Got a Secret!

A Trade Secret, that is!  I am heading north this weekend to attend the annual Trade Secrets show in Sharon, Connecticut with some amazing friends I met in Blogland.image

If you don’t know Trade Secrets, it’s the brainchild of the fabulous Bunny Williams. It’s a rare plant and garden antiques sale, followed by a day of garden tours, that benefits Women’s Support Services, a non-profit organization founded in 1981 that provides services to persons in the northwest corner of Connecticut who have experienced domestic violence or abuse. image

It’s the go-to place for everyone in the trade this weekend, from Martha Stewart to… well, to me!imageMy hosts have advised me to check the weather carefully, and come prepared for a warm and sunny day with a big hat, or a chilly and wet day with a jacket and rain boots, like those gals pictured above.

More than 60 vendors are represented at Trade Secrets, which started 13 years ago as a small plant sale at Bunny Williams’ house. image

Some old favourites, like Pennoyer Newman are going to be there, and lots of new vendors that I don't know, and can’t wait to see!

I am packing up the car, charging my camera batteries and heading north and I can’t wait!!!


  1. Have a fantastic time Meg!

  2. Yes, and I can't wait for the updates and photos. Have a super time.

  3. I don't know why Martha is looking on for a boyfriend. She and Bunny make a darling couple.

    Bon shopping!
