As we were waiting outside of H&M on Saturday morning, checking out people's purchases from The Very Best of versace for H&M, we saw these 5 young gents with many more bags than other people who had just shopped the collection. They told us that they had just "dropped" $15, 000 on clothing from the collection and expect for it to go on eBay for over $50,000.
After we got a taste of what the haulers bought, a lone shopper on the opposite side of the doors told us that they had paid people to wait overnight in line for them and and shop with them. We showed up to document the line at 7:30AM and nothing seemed to be out of order at that time.
Racked National has been keeping tabs on the haulers via eBay and as they point out, prices have been pretty quiet so far.
