Thousands Wait Hours to Shop at Scottie Pippen's Former Mansion

An estate sale this weekend let thousands explore the Chicago Bulls star's former home.

Thousands of people waited in line on Saturday and Sunday to shop at the at Scottie Pippen's former Highland Park mansion. Only 25 people were allowed in at a time, so people waited for hours to shop.

The sale began at 9 a.m. on Saturday, but people started waiting in line much earlier. New people were allowed in every 15 minutes, and only 25 people were allowed in the house at a time.

25 people every 15 minutes is 100 people an hour. That's 10 hours just to let in the first thousand of "thousands." Either some of these "facts" are wrong or the estate sale went on all night or at least 1,000 people were not even allowed in.

Sheryl Rue-Borden, who organized the sale, estimates that between 3,500 and 4,000 people came to the mansion this weekend. She said there was an hour and a half wait all day Saturday (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.), and people were allowed in as they came on Sunday because it was raining. Thanks for reading, Jacob
