Over the years roofs were added, leaving space for the trees to grow up through the roofline and additional buildings were erected. The "annex" housed gifts, fabrics, and houseplants for many years. Textiles had been Buzzie's original career path. The merchandise has changed somewhat from the early days into the largest craft supply shop in the area during the 70s and 80s and is now evolving into a well-stocked antiques and collectibles shop including an inventory of affordable USA-sourced gifts, decorative supplies and craft items to compliment any decor. In 1982, with the loss of our Buzzie, Williams' Trading Post entered a complete transition to a third-generation ownership. With Nat's expertise in plant and soil science top-quality plants were produced, everything from tulips in the spring to poinsettias in December.
In 2003 with a transfer of ownership to third generation owner Martha (Williams) Dupuis after retirement from another career, Williams' Trading Post began to transform from a farm stand to the present garden center with traffic-stopping displays and friendly, knowledgeable staff.
