My Second Saturday Steal!

I am pleased to post today because..... I have a Saturday Steal! Finally! Camille will be so proud!

Today Boise got an Apple store. The first one in the state of Idaho. Prior to today, Idahoans had to travel to Portland or Salt Lake City to go to a genuine, corporate Apple store. (The horror.) 

This morning I got up bright and early at 7 and went down to the mall. I picked up some coffee and headed over to the Apple store's location, which was set to open at 10am. I took up my spot in line and quickly started socializing with all the Apple Fans in line. (Speaking of the line, I was tenth!)



At 10am, all the Apple store employees came running through the crowd to much cheering, clapping and high fives. Then they opened the store and let the customers come in. They had blaring music, and all the employees high five'd and shook hands with all the customers who entered. It was awesome. And intense.


Then in the store, Apple employees started handing out little white boxes.

A special Apple Boise Towne Square t-shirt! 


Apple shirts are like gold. They don't sell official Apple merchandise, so the only way for regular people to get one is an event like this! I actually have one other Apple t-shirt from when I worked doing tech support for iPod and iPhone. So TWO Apple shirts for me! Score!

I'm very happy with my steal. It was totally worth getting up early on a Saturday morning!
