Alexis Bittar's Lucite jewelry went on sale this morning at 9:30, and already we've got a report from the front lines. Writes a tipster: "Arrived around 9:15 and was maybe the 40th person in line. They're letting groups of 20 in every 25 minutes. Line is 50-60 deep right now, so an hour wait from the back. Man came out to explain that there's plenty of merch and to come back at lunchtime if you don't want to wait." [RackedWire; Dealfeed]
