Bailey White, 13, stood patiently in line with her little brother Keaton at the gift store inside the Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue Wednesday afternoon, each clutching a stuffed terrier named Charlie that cost $35 per item.As businesses around the president-elect's glitzy New York home have had to deal with extra security and crowds reducing foot traffic sales in the lead up to Fifth Avenue's busiest shopping weekend, Trump souvenirs have been flying off the shelves at the billionaire's gift store.In just one hour, a Reuters reporter counted at least 100 people crowding the shop located on the lower level of the Tower to buy hats, pins and more.When Betancourt, who moved to New York from Venezuela more than four decades ago, braved holiday crowds a week later Wednesday, she had to leave empty-handed once again.Sari Nielsen, 71, was waiting at the Trump Cafe next door to the shop for the crowds to die down.The two stood outside the Trump Tower with their gold Trump store bags.
