With the Closing Ceremony just days away at the PyeongChang Games, thousands of Olympics fans are making a mad dash for last minute souvenirs.

With the Closing Ceremony just days away at the PyeongChang Games, thousands of Olympics fans are making a mad dash for last minute souvenirs.

What's hot? Anything with an Olympic logo.

The shelves are emptying out fast at the Olympic superstore. If you want something with the Olympic rings on it and the official branding of the 2018 games, people here know you have to act fast.

There is no lack of souvenirs, and the Korean markets are everywhere. But a lot of people are choosing items with the Olympic logos on them as touchstones that they were here when the world came together.

"I come here looking for snow globe for my sons," said one shopper.

Getting into that store is like getting into "Pirates of the Caribbean" at Disneyland on a busy day. To cut down on the lines, they even have teddy bear vending machines. Those usually sell out by 2 p.m. everyday.
