Torch Relay Mittens

December 7, 2009

According to a couple of stories out there, the Red Torch Bearer Mittens have quickly become the hot-ticket item of the games.

Set up with benefits going to the Canadian Olympic Foundation, it`s getting to the point that stores can’t keep them on the shelves. When an order does come in, reports say that they’re all sold out within an hour. Crayzness!

According to, “HBC has reportedly sold more than half a million mitts across Canada, and a million more are set to hit store shelves over the next two weeks.``

That means that approximately one in every 60 Canadians has a pair right now, and if those new million sell, that`ll drop to about 1 in 20.

Beth and I have our pairs!
