The red mittens sold by HBC stores across the country are the hottest item at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.
Worn by thousands of torch-bearers over several months and priced at $10 a pair, they’re one of the best deals of the Games (and a great way to show some Canadian pride). Even Oprah herself got a pair (and a pair for her audience members) as these mittens have been the fashion cover story of the Games. Around Vancouver, the mittens are making appearances in some unlikely places.
Should you have photos that I may post of the “Girl in Wetsuit” or any other statues sporting the mittens, please add them to the Miss604 Flickr Group.
