I wonder how they handle/prevent theft. Sadly, at my local club theft occurs at the annual show/sale.

We've learned from the past how to reduce that problem. We have volunteers at all entry/exits of the show room and some walking around to monitor each area. Strictly no plants can exit the showroom or enter from the sales area.

Many collectors are glad to get rid of extra pants either way... ? :D Have you seen signs "FREE" at garage sales ?

Or maybe the guards there are fiscally responsible for shorts....
If your cacti mess in your job just forget about the job.

The show I was speaking about has vendors selling and they do care if their plants get stolen.
