Plant swap question
Have any of you ever been to a plant exchange? I went to my first one yesterday and am curious if that's how they are always run. They had people drop off plants between 9-10. Between that time the 'workers' were stockpiling things they wanted in a corner while everyone else was kept behind a rope. About 20 min till, they began to line up behind an entrance. At 10 they just let everyone file in single file and it quickly became a free for all-keep in mind that there were 160-180 people in the line to plant shop -as they had promised that anyone who just showed up could get 2 free plants even if they didn't bring anything. If your hands were full, you didn't dare sit anything down to look at something else or it would be gone.
I just keep thinking it could have been ran better somehow. Any comments on other plant swaps? Don't think I'd want to brave one again if they are all ran like that! :)
