Sorry slow, haven't been to this thread for a while...

The Seedy Saturdays I've been to have had one table set up for the trading. You toss your donations onto the table and you pick through what is there and take what you want.

They sometimes recommend take one packet for each packet you have donated but it really goes on the honor system. One had a garden club member at the table at all times to explain things and monitor for fairness but the other did not. One they had TONES left over at the end and the other it was barren halfway through the day...barely a single packet left (but that one also had a TONE of people coming through, could barely move through the vender area it was so packed) its really variable.

The venders usually have one table each. For one they were just throughout the hallways and you had to walk past venders to reach the swap table but the other I went to the venders were in the basement and the swap table was in the center of the main floor (with a raffle/info table as you entered the building).
