Additional tips:

Be considerate of other people. Hopefully the Fisher Pavilon will provide more space than the past locations. But if you have a backpack filled with stuff, be aware that people may be trying to squeeze by you as you linger at a table. Also, you should have emphasized your "mosey along" suggestion. If you're looking at stuff at a table and a friend of yours appears then don't stand right in front of the table for 15 minutes while you have a conversation with them. Move to an open area. And if you decide to chat with the person behind the table, perhaps move over a little so you're not right in front of their main wares. Other people coming by may want to look at that stuff while you're chatting. I know these seem like petty gripes, but when they happen over and over and over it's hard not to get annoyed. The social component is a big factor for many there (which is great), but some people want to mainly actually see and touch all the items.

Bringing $50 cash is a good tip, but bring smaller bills if you can (i.e. a bunch of $1s and $5). Making change for $20 bills all day can be cumbersome.

And also, don't read an entire minicomic from somebody's table, then toss it back. If it interests you, spend the two bucks and take it home!
