That old socialist Bernie Sanders is drumming up business right here in Michigan!

You HAVE to remember grumpy Bernie at the inauguration.


I know a lot of people who are doing this for their Halloween costume but were having issues getting the mittens. It's so crazy that people go as meme's for Halloween now. A lot of people will be doing the Bernie Sanders Mitten meme for Halloween.

The mittens though... A place all the way up in northern Michigan called Baabaazuzu in Lake Leelanau has been hand-making mittens out of recycled, wool sweaters since 1993. They have seen their orders triple since the inauguration under a month ago. They are calling it a "Bernie Moment" and have taken a bunch of orders from the east coast to Chicago. You know, places where people like to keep their hands warm. Click here to see the full story. 

For the record, the gloves ARE NOT CHEAP! We are talking about over 50 bucks per pair. Guess what? Mitten sales are driving Baabaazuzu to their best January sales ever!

This IS Michigan and you don't have to wait until Halloween to keep your hands warm. There is supposed to be more large amounts of snow dumped on us in the next few days. If you are looking to keep other body parts warm as well...
