Note that selling things isn't necessarily just a money thing; people
who have given you money and gotten swag in return have quite
literally bought in, and that identification (for better or for worse)
makes them more passionate advocates for what you're doing. In other
words, they *want* to give you money as a form of contribution; it
isn't a bad strategy to let them do that even if you don't actually
need the money.
