Remember Bernie's gloves?

 Then you must remember Jen Ellis, the Vermont teacher whose cute and comfy mittens got heaps of attention when he wore them to the inauguration. Good news! Mitten madness isn't over! Ellis has partnered with a company called Vermont Teddy Bear to sell "Bernie Mittens." A portion of the profits will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Vermont. 

She taught the company's designers how to replicate her patterns, and the whole process will be local and sustainable. Sanders' own team is already selling sweatshirts with his iconic inauguration day look, mittens front and center, and has raised almost $2 million for Meals on Wheels in Vermont.
