I contemplated buying a long sleeve tee but will leave it for now. I have quite a collection of Canada gear to wear and now need to focus attention on establishing a pin collection, a long and outstanding tradition at the Games is to trade pins. Having never been before I only found out this tidbit of information recently. I am on the prowl for Olympic pins. I would also like to take a bunch of the Canadian flag pins to hand out to people I meet from other countries. The next few weeks will be spent scouring souvenir shops for these Canadian pins and shopping for the best price.
The Bay stores I have been to do not have the Pins, Keychains and other items for sale. There is an online Bay store where you can purchase those items if like me, you now need to buy Vancouver 2010 souvenirs other than clothing.
It was really cool to see the frenzy over Canada Olympic apparel today in that store. Looks like Olympic fever is spreading and Canada is on board! I can't wait to see all the Canada logo merchandise being worn around town and at the Olympics in Vancouver. I have never felt so proud to be Canadian and am totally ready to show off my Canadian spirit and pride. Judging from today, looks like I'm not the only one!
