From an organizer point of view I do think it's bad form to sell on the side unless specific arrangements have been made to do so-- JungleTrader, I think your situation is different, since we (the NW Tiki Kon organizers) agreed to allow in-room vending, and you are paying a fee to do so (though I did just email you-- we got a better deal on vendor space! So you might consider taking a table after all!).
I'm biased, admittedly, but these events are a whole lot of work to put on, and usually the organizers don't make a dime-- in fact, most of us loose money. So I kind of feel like vendors who sell under the radar are taking unfair advantage of our efforts.
