As of 7am, there were about 50 people queued up on 17th Street, waiting for the Barneys Warehouse Sale to open at 8. That's not quite as daunting as in past years, but it's still impressive, especially considering that this is the first time people also had the option of shopping online. If you're on the fence, might as well stop by—especially since the shoes are so good this year.
Update: A spy tells us the line only hit about 80 people before the doors opened.
