Trade Secrets: Martha Stewart Makes the Scene
As usual, Martha Stewart was among the eager, early buyers at Trade Secrets, the massive rare plant and antique sale at Lion Rock Farm in Sharon, which benefits Women’s Support Services. As she stopped at every booth (including potter Guy Wolff‘s left), Martha took photographs and notes, proving that she remains a hands-on editor. While there were other celebrity sightings—the actress Natasha Richardson and the New York Post columnist Cindy Adams—few people paid any attention to them, for most visitors were more concerned with shopping and catching up with old friends.
