(CNN) — People lined up hours in advance to be among the first to get their hands on the new i-Phones that wen on sale Friday.
There were several i-Phone fans waiting outside a store in Charleston, South Carolina.
One woman there really wanted to be among the first to get one of the new i-Phones and was willing to make a big trade with two women in line in front of her to make it happen.
"They decided that they were going to do a swap with me. They liked my Louis Vuitton bag. So, they would give me their spot, since I was guaranteed, hopefully, one in place of the Louis Vuitton bags," said Lisa Hoffman.
She says she traded her $2,000 bag in exchange for moving up to the number three spot in line.
She was originally fifth in line, but she says she heard the store had a limited supply and she wanted to make sure she got one of the phones.
Hoffman says she believes that the trade was more than fair.
