Tis the seasons for line-waiting, and while Uggs and Abercrombie are undoubtedly seeing their fair share of Minnesotan tourists, we hardly expected to see this queue outside of Marc by Marc Jacobs on Bleecker and Perry Street last night.
While it's true that most of the store's space is given over to PVC keychains and plastic bracelets, having a line outside still means that the place must be severely packed inside. In case your Christmas list involved someone dying for Marc trinkets, we suggest making a trip to the store around noon while the tourists are still up near their Midtown hotels.
