Shoe lovers, and “Sex and the City” fans, stood in line outside Nordstrom’s flagship Seattle store for hours yesterday morning to get the chance to meet Sarah Jessica Parker. And to purchase shoes from her new SJP line, of course.

The highly anticipated collection has proven to be even more popular than originally planned for. It helps that Sarah Jessica Parker has launched a cross country tour stopping at Nordstrom department stores in major cities to greet fans and promote the line. Her events at Los Angeles and Chicago have seen hundreds of shoppers waiting for the chance to chat with the actress, and get their shoes signed.

Signed SJP shoes have already started popping up on auction sites like eBay. The average starting bid for a Sarah Jessica Parker signed high heel is around $650. Many of the auctions sport “buy it now” prices of a thousand dollars or more. It’s quit the increase considering flats in the SJP shoe line retail for around $195.

The collection also includes several handbags and a classic trench style coat in two colors. The shoes are made in Italy and were created hand in hand with Parker’s business partner George Malkemus, who is also CEO of Blahnik USA. This relationship between the famous shoe company with the SJP line has caused many budget conscious shoppers to consider the SJP shoes Blahnik’s at a nicer price. The collection is available exclusively at Nordstrom and online at Nordstrom.com.

The shoe line is certainly not Sarah Jessica Parker’s first foray into fashion. The style icon has had several collaborations over the years, including several perfumes and a now discontinued budget clothing line called Bitten. She has also served as the face of both GAP and Garnier hair products. Of course, her rise to fashion icon status was begun when she starred as Carrie Bradshaw in “Sex and the City.” Sarah Jessica Parker will continue making personal appearances in order to promote the new SJP shoe collection. This week still includes stops in Chicago, Miami, and Dallas. You can see her full schedule online here.
