Yep. People have helped before in the past, but you either have to have unlocked True Bro status with somebody there or ask for something easy that'll linger late into somebody's 3rd or 4th time in line.

Good luck either way you magnificent bastards.

Person 2 ignores good form and looks through the same exact drawers as the previous person for 10 minutes. Then almost every person after does the same thing despite having seen everything. This repeats for roughly 3 hours.

Line will probably begin forming tonight if Piper has anything to say about it. The line varies, but by noon Saturday, it should be at least 20-30 people deep.

Depending on the line size, the Gallery allows 15-20 people inside. You line up along the wall. Person 1 goes up to the flat file and gets to go through each drawer and review prints/inspect quality. While there's not a time limit, it's usually good form to limit your time to 5 minutes.

Once a print has been decided on (1 print per), you pay and then you can either A) leave, B) get back in line, C) post your pick up on eBay, D) a combo of A and C or B and C.

If you're there for local pickup, you don't need to wait in the flat file line. You can, but you'd be dumb.


So I can only buy one print and then proceed to get back in line if I would like to purchase another?

Good luck to all lining up for this. If you're number 1, please hold up your phone and record the groans when everybody sees you walking away with a Stout Thing for cost.

Yes. That would be Option B.

I like how think space did their flat file sale recently. Everything in poly bags. Spread out on a table.

I like the notion that it's an actual flat file that people have to flip through. Just feel like it takes a lot of time for each person to flip through.

But hey if it's part of Rhee experience then so be it.
