I have attended a few Seedy Saturdays and think they are great. Each is slightly different. The ones I have been to also have had venders selling seeds and things too. I usually buy a few as well as trade. Often the venders also donate a few to the swap (but I've seen them remove it from their sale packaging so they are smaller amounts).

And the first year may be a bit slow but they quickly grow.

The ones I attended were in churches (or former churches) basements so there was lots of room for both the trade table and venders. Unless it was a small handful of friends I would recommend at least a room at a restaurant, a church or community center room seems to work well for Seedy Saturdays I've been to.

One had all seeds scattered willy nilly on one table, I found it hard to sort through them all for what I was interested in. The other has them sorted by type so it was much easier to find what you were interested in, tomatoes or flowers or knew where to look (or not look).
