The Garden Club of Trenton joins the William Trent House Association for another annual Greens Sale and Open House this week from Noon to 5:00 p.m. on Friday and 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday. There will be something for everyone, so shoppers and visitors of all ages are warmly welcome.

You can select beautifully-decorated wreaths and table arrangements created by the Garden Club as well as non-decorated wreaths, greens, loose magnolia branches and even cut trees. They come in a variety of sizes and prices. Proceeds benefit the Trent House Association’s ongoing curatorial and programming efforts.

When you want to warm up a bit, be sure to visit the Open House, appropriately decorated for the holiday season. Tours will also be available, and they are very well rated: 4.4 by 74 users.

The Association describes it best: “Step back almost 300 years in time and visit the oldest building in New Jersey’s capital city of Trenton and once home to the man for whom the city is named.  Visit the 1719 William Trent House Museum and you will gain an amazing insight into the many layers of colonial life during the early 18th century.”

Don’t forget the Trent House Museum Shop which will feature special items and seasonal gifts, which are simple but elegant reproduction artifacts of the 1700s. Further, seasonal refreshments will be provided for guests all afternoon in the adjacent Carriage House/Visitor Center.

The William Trent House is located at 15 Market Street in downtown Trenton, just 3 minutes off of Route 1 or Route 29. Parking is available either on William Trent Place (off Market Street) or in the adjacent parking lot. For more information, see:, or call (609) 989-3027.
