Canadiana Vintage Spirit

I am feeling very patriotic watching the Vancouver Winter Olympics this year and it is making me want to buy some cheesy Canadian olympic gear like those red mittens that everyone is wearing. But, I will not give in. I would like something more traditional like this lightweigt elk printed scarf or this iconic striped wool blanket from Canada's oldest department store Hudson's Bay Company.
Almost goes with the tradional feel of the Marc by Marc show below don't you think?

Ummm.... we have like 9 pairs of those mittens in my house cause everyone gave them to us for christmas. you can have my backup pair if you change your mind. i stalk virginia johnsons shop on ossington. it is magic as are the bay coats you randomly see about that are clearly older than the people wearing them. canada misses you. xoxoxox

Alison,
Well maybe you can send those mittens to me anyway! They are a great memory of the olympics after all and I can see that I will feel left out if I don't have them. ;-)
