Putting on my contributer hat (which I don't have, because there is no 
store), I don't want a store for ambassadors to get shirts, I'd like a 
store so /I/ can get shirts.

(Heck, I've even bought a OpenBSD shirt because they had a store and a 
nice logo.   Open source shirts are a good thing.)

Where do I do that for Fedora today?

Our options are limited to going to events -- and not everyone can go to 
events.   Lots more people use Fedora and cheap-advertising on people's 
backs (especially things we don't have to pay for) is a way to spread 
the message.
