“Trade Secrets” in Sharon CT

Trade Secrets, a rare plant and garden antiques sale, is a yearly event that takes place in Sharon Connecticut, just across the NY border. The event is held yearly to raise funds for Women’s Support Services, a non-profit that assists victims of domestic violence.

After hosting many guests here at Hilltop House that come back year after year to attend this event, I decided it was time to go and check it out for myself.  Well, to say that I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement! Dozens of vendors from Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York bring a wide variety of merchandise. Trade Secrets is packed with every beautiful thing you could want for your garden, from rare plants to antique garden furniture and art to hand made pots and planters, topiaries and more. It’s held at Lion Rock Farm, a beautiful venue with breathtaking views of the valley in Sharon.

Here is a sampling of some of the lovely things you can find at this amazing garden show.

Make sure you bring cash or checks because they aren’t set up for credit cards.
