Help from Fodor Friends needed

Jump to last reply

My wife and I went with another couple to Western Canada a few years ago hoping to experience a holiday of a lifetime. We were not disappointed and to this day speak of the wonderful times we had.
Unfortunately, our male friend has recently been advised he has incurable cancer. One of the many memories we often share about our wonderful holiday is how both he and I had to buy a cheap pair of Ski-gloves whilst in Banff, (the weather unexpectedly became bitterly cold in early September) and then how my friend inadvertently left his gloves on a ferry crossing from Vancouver Island.
No, I’m not asking anyone to go look for them (!!), but I would love to get my friend an exact pair as a Christmas present and would be extremely grateful if my Fodor friends could direct me to a website (presumably in Canada) where I could purchase these gloves direct and have shipped to the UK in time for Christmas.
I have just changed my profile picture to include the exact gloves left on the ferry (Black & red with maple leaf motif) and would be grateful for any help, having spent hours trying to find them on the web myself.


[I’m hoping this request won’t ‘infringe’ on any of Fodor’s rules but if they do would hope, under the circumstances, this could be overlooked.]
