1. Keep your expectations low.
We know that you want to run straight in and grab that limited edition, highly sought-after, prized item ... but so does everybody else. Keep your expectations low and everything you do bag will be a bonus.
2. Prepare for the worst.
Including a lack of facilities.
3. Check out your opponents.
They are savage. Don't forget it.
4. Be fearless.
Practice your 'don't mess with me' face...it could be the difference between a shade that doesn't suit you and one that does.
5. Get excited. Get very excited.
The adrenaline will help you in the mayhem. Everyone, get ready to scream in 3...2...1...
6. Bring emotional support.
You need to keep your head cool and your nerves steady if you want the best pieces.
7. Have a back up plan.
You don't just need a plan B, you need a plan A through to Q.
8. Make friends with those around you in line.
It might be good to have an ally on the inside.
9. Have multiple friends to hold your place.
But remember to bring them from the beginning -- pop-up shoppers do not treat cutters kindly.
10. Prepare for chaos.
It's going to be crazy in there.
