The Red Mittens of Vancouver 2010 on Cafe Cartolina

The Great Canadian Mitten Giveaway on Cafe Cartolina

The Great Canadian Mitten Giveaway on Cafe Cartolina

There are things in life that you regret to not have bought sooner. The perfect example are the red mittens of Vancouver 2010. I saw a girl wearing them 10 days ago on the street just next to The Bay and thought I should go inside to get mine. Then, I forgot. But now, it is almost impossible to find them, at least in adult size.

I would like to wear them during the Olympics to show my support to the Canadian athletes. Plus, I love the Winter Olympics. Now, with the shortage of stock, this $10 item is now more desirable.

This is why I am sharing with you a giveaway that is going on all week on Cafe Cartolina where you have a chance to win your own pair. Fiona took nice pictures and made a nice illustration for her event. All you have to do to participate is to post a comment where you tell me one thing you know about Canada. It is day 2 and there are already 155 entries.

    I know, everytime I check if they were in they were already sold out! Checked online and they are sold out of the mitts there as well.

    They just received a new batch on Vancouver 2010 site. I was the most popular who sold out in less than 2 days at the beginning. They are now back and as popular as ever!
