Mellow ‘cash mob’ at Village Green Perennial Nursery

Maybe “cash flow” would be a better term for what happened at Village Green Perennial Nursery (WSB sponsor) this afternoon, more than “cash mob.” When the appointed hour for the latter event arrived, around 2 pm, certainly there were a lot of shoppers. We counted about 20, between a few who came early because 2 pm didn’t work for them, and some who said they were definitely there for the “mob,” which, as reported here 3 weeks ago, was the idea of social marketer Michael B. Maine of Menrva Labs, after meeting VG’s Vera Johnson at a conference:

So in all it was a good day for the rambling nursery in the unincorporated area between West Seattle and White Center. An afterparty was planned at Company in WC, and Vera was scheduled to head to Vashon Island, invited to speak about her consumer-rights activism tonight at Michelle Shocked‘s “Roccupy!” performance.

    Very mellow crowd indeed, but think most of us who went bought more than $20 worth of stuff. :)
    Love Village Green Nursery!

    Thanks to everyone who made it out. VG Nursery had great business that day, and it again felt amazing to be surrounded by such wonderful people. You guys made my visiting mother feel extremely welcome. She boarded the plane after thoroughly enjoying her weekend in Seattle!

    Also, I’m loving my new plant selection making it’s new home in my apartment. Thanks so much to Vera, Jenn, the crew, and everyone who came out to the nursery on Saturday.

Sorry, comment time is over.
