I am a sucker for buying things that reflect the “event” of the day! Example – the OLYMPICS.
This weekend, I wandered down to the Bay – the official supplier of Olympic gear. I’ve had my eye on the gear for some time.
Hey! Who doesn’t own a pair the iconic red mittens.
I’ve got Canada Olympic gear from the days that Roots was the supplier. Trust me, you look after it; it will last! However, the choices of styles can be very interesting. Some pieces really functional and others just look weird. Do you think they are wildly over priced? I usually do, however if you keep your eye peeled there are deals!
And a certain percentage goes to the Canadian Olympic movement.
Feeling patriotic and just really wanting something new for the Rio Games – I made my purchase of YET ANOTHER piece of fleece gear. Selling features; no hood, its got a clean front with CANADA down one sleeve, great zippers in front and on the pockets. Discrete Olympic / Canada logo and the Hudson Bay Company markings. Its a nice cozy jacket.
I like it… And from the Winter Games I have a t-shirt with Canada in Gold. Let’s hope we see some of that color.
As the world of sponsorship goes, if you stop by Petro-Canada you can pick up an Olympic pin. Mine is flip-flops .. what else says Brazilian beaches more so that flip flops!
Won’t be long til its time to flip on “the Games” and see how our Canadian team is doing! Remember its the Hudson Bay that has your Olympic Gear, but anything Red and White will do. Let’s push Canada across the finish line … and look good doing it!
