Doors opened at 9am and the website said explicitly that there was NO overnight camping and that no one would be allowed on the premises until 8:30am. When we got there at around 8:15 there were already around 100 people in line. We overheard people saying that others had camped out and security guards left them because "there weren't too many". It was annoying and a bit unfair - especially since it was REALLY cold this morning. Luckily, Luella and I made some friends and it did warm up a lot.
Most of the morning was spent standing in line, chatting with the people around us, and listening to music on my iPhone. By the time we got inside people were wrapped all the way around the building. And to give reference, it's a rather large furniture store - so try to imagine how many people were there to create such a line. This is just the line of people on one side of the building:
Lu and I decided to wear our kickball t-shirts, since that is how we first met, as well as baseball hats for our respective teams (she represented the Sox, while I obviously wore my Yanks garb) to make a statement. Walking to the back of the line, we got a few comments from people who said "Nice hats.. that's a pretty good idea". The point is to get noticed, right?
