To me, negotiation is half the fun of an event like this! I think, "Let's test our wits and see if we can make a deal!"
I always welcome negotiation when exchanging goods; it makes the process intriguing! ^^ When I negotiate with others at a swap meet event, I have no qualms about making offers for multiple item purchases or for items that don't appear reasonably priced. If they don't like it, tough! The buyer can always walk away.

Why do I have the feeling Chris' comment was directed towards me? ( ¬‿¬)
Haha, no worries!
I should clarify my comment - there is a clear difference between tactful negotiation and wasting one's time (or harassment). My experience has been that most people are shy when it comes to in-person negotiation, which is why I encourage them to communicate with me whether I'm looking to buy or sell something. I certainly would hope that no one thinks haggling (or trading for that matter) is a necessity at an event like this.
