I don't believe sales are allowed on the show floor.  Sometimes they are, and 
when they are in California you have to have a special license, deal with 
sales tax, yadda yadda..

Mozilla Foundation got around this last year by offering items and having a 
"recommended donation" price sheet for those items.  You can't enforce the 
prices on people (well, you can but if you got caught doing so it might 
jeopardize future invitations).  I think that the show people were a bit 
unhappy about that situation anyway.  To top it all off, it was embarrassing 
that some of our own devs got away with $35 firefox polo shirts for only $5.  
So you run the risk of losing money on the ordeal as well.

Something to think of for future shows..
