Rare(r) 1930s Hudson Bay Company Point Blanket

Like the one before, this one is also from the 1930s, but it's color and gold label makes it rare. The gold labels were then issued only on pastel colored blankets.

It's great to be a blanket collector in Canada because there's an abundance of great HBC blankets here. I imagine the American Northwest (and possibly southwest) would be the same for Pendleton blankets.

Hudson Bay should do a throwback blanket in Snuggy style.

Oh wow. Admittedly, I had to look up what a snuggie was.

Check this out:

I think snuggies are fine for around the house or at a rock concert, but some of those guys look like klansmen in their snuggies.

Wow, haven't looked at buzzfeed in ages. Reminds me of my days as a 9-5 desk jockey. Thanks for the memories!
