My H&M Versace Gold Medallion Bracelet GIVEAWAY (Closed)

I‘d seen the Versace for H&M hype all month and last Friday decided to attempt the shopping madness. My brother, Drew, and a few friends checked out the scene around 10 PM Fri. night. There were already over a hundred people in line huddling together, playing cards and sprawled out on blankets under black tarps waiting until the store opened at 8am the next morning. It looked miserable, but it was decision time. The risk of shivering outside with a slim chance of buying anything Versace was daunting and annoying on the part of H&M. Why can’t they supply enough for a whole week?

I suggested paying a homeless person to hold our spot in line, but that would be like searching for a clean needle in a haystack of heroin addicts. Many are mentally ill or on hardcore drugs. I wasn’t sure how I’d explain the situation or have them blend in and stay all night. The H&M security was really tight watching everyone in line.

Friday night few moments before giving up on waiting all night until the SF store’s opening

Versace for H&M stretched across the store’s windows looking like the set of a LMFAO music video

10:30 PM…Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Time was ticking, the line was growing and temperatures were dropping. I gave up. As we drove around the corner, I’m pretty sure what happened next can only be described as fashion fate. We pulled up to a stop light at Market Street and saw a man on the corner holding a cardboard sign that read, “My car got towed, trying to get gas money to go to Portland. Stranded in SF…Anything HELPS.”

With the urging of my brother and friend Gigi, I rolled down my window and asked, “Are you planning to spend tonight in San Francisco?” He said he that he was until he had more money.

Well uh, there’s a BIG line for H&M tonight and we were wondering if we could pay you to hold our spot? But only if you wanted to…”. Before I could say more he said, “Yea, I’ll do it. How much?”

“How about $50?” and he said “Ok, I’ll meet you up there.

We pulled around the block to park and he was already in line sitting with his backpack. His name was Jeffrey. Security stamped our hands and I gave him $20 and said we’d pay the rest in the morning. We talked for a bit and asked if he wanted anything. He was well spoken, friendly, funny and very polite.

Jeffrey had fallen on hard times and was sleeping on the streets after working as a self-employed bike messenger for years in Portland, OR. He asked for socks because his feet were cold from standing in the rain all day. We gave him a jacket, socks and brought him pizza later which was the only place open, although he requested rice because he tries to stay away from greasy food.

My friends and I were going out a few blocks away so we told him we’d be back every couple hours to check in. While chatting, another homeless man walking down the line was begging for change. As he asked us for money, Jeffrey turned his head and said to him, “No man, I’m working right now.”

He told us he’s hates panhandling and would rather be doing something, even just waiting in line, to earn cash. When we came back at 3 am, he was reading the NY Times after getting back from a quick jog around Union Square.

We told him we’d be back at 6 am and would bring him breakfast and coffee. “Actually, I really try to avoid coffee,” he said. “I don’t like high levels of caffeine level in my body, Gatorade would be good. Orange or grape please,” he added. What a healthnut, huh? icon smile

Let me introduce you now to Jeffrey…he was super cool

Jeffrey (He looked like a young Woody Harrelson) & my brother, Drew

6:45 am Sat. Nov. 19th: After accidently oversleeping, I jumped up and screamed. My hair was a mess, but we all raced to the sale! We arrived and the line had already started moving. Where was Jeffrey? He had to be there, right?  He seemed like a real straight shooter. Then we spotted him in line.
Geez guys, I didn’t think you were gonna make it. They’re about to hand out wristbands,” he said. We paid him, plus extra for being late, thanked him and he wished us luck with Versace. I really hope he lands on his feet soon or can get a bike messenger job here in SF. 
They gave us wristbands and only 25 people at a time could go in the women’s section for 10 minutes.

But he was able to get the black Tux he wanted. I wanted the black leather jacket which was already completely sold out in the first 20 minutes. Oh well…. icon smile

    Hi there, thanks for stopping by yesterday. I am now following you. Your post is funny-I heart H&M.

  • this free bird

    Your brother is a TROOPER!

    And can I just say I think it’s awesome that you gave this guy something to do that made him feel like he was useful and employed. It actually choked me up because I think a lot of people just brush homeless people aside without realizing it could happen to any of us. I hope he finds work SOON. What a great guy–and still with a great attitude.

    Okay I’m following. I wish I could win, sell it and give the guy the money. Is that bad?

    It’s probably a good thing that I flew back to Australia pre-Versace…

    Are you seriously going to give away this beauty?? I can’t believe how much determination that would take. (I don’t think I could bear to give it away if it were mine – heavens, even the box is fabulous.)

    Now to the story. I got such a kick out of reading this story Dale. Isn’t it amazing how much good can be done from something which just started as a chance encounter? Feel quite chuffed! Virginia x0

  • Miss Caitlin S.

    What a cool story! I love that you found a way to help him and he help you! I live in Portland and that poor guy looks like all the pedi-cabbers we have here, I think as the rain kicks in they have a harder time with the job. I really like the way you both helped each other out. I’m glad you got to go into Versace too! My girlfriend and I got up early to do that as well… and then,went to the wrong H&M on Saturday, it was really annoying. We thought we would be smart to leave downtown where we live and go to the suburban location – less line! But really, there was no line because they weren’t doing it, haha. I follow you on GFC. And you and your brother look so much alike!

  • hannahstiff

    OH MY GOSH! This post completely made my day. I’m so in love with Jeffrey. And so in love with your plan to hold your spot in line, help a guy in need and score some Versace. I think we may be soul mates. I’m definitely featuring this whole article on my blog because it’s the most witty and warm post I’ve read in ages. A happy side note would definitely be winning the bracelet as we don’t have an H&M in my entire state (Ugh Montana, how un-progressive of us.) So now I’m a following, I gave a facebook and blog shout out and I’ll def. be back to read more delightful articles:) XO

    nice giveaway. this collection wasn’t really my cup of tea. i stood in line for the elin kling collection,, but it was the only one i’ve actually been waiting in line for.. it wasn’t even worth standing in the cold since people who came just minutes before were allowed to run in front.. no bracelets or anything. but i almost got everything i came for then
    jeffrey does look like woody a bit.how fun
