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..
