The Sun Shined for Trade Secrets’ 10th Anniversary

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsThe weather is always a major topic of conversation at Trade Secrets, the massive plant and antique sale to benefit Women’s Support Services, and this year was no exception. The high winds toppled small trees and topiaries and chilled bones even as the brilliant sunshine had everyone squinting at 8 a.m. when the first of the 400 early buyers—twice as many as in previous years—started shopping. There were large contingents of well-groomed women from Greenwich, CT, and plenty of dressed-down gardeners from the Berkshires and Columbia County. Vendors reported brisk sales as shoppers from three states—including Edith Hilpman, Hunter Runnette and Elizabeth Hilpman (above) could not resist buying from local nurseries and antiques dealers to raise money for an agency that offers assistance to victims of domestic violence in our region.
