I am still recovering from "the boo-bons" (that is short for the Bubonic Plague)....but I dont want you to think I have forgotten my loyal readers!!!
So, this post is about a trip I took recently to Honest Ed's.
Those of you from this area know Ed's well.....but for those you you who are not from 'round here...let me tell you a story.........
|This is what it USED to look like....|
thanks to lost-toronto.blogspot.ca
Theses days, it has seen better days....but continues to amuse and amaze me!!
|I love the sign. It is a Toronto Landmark!!!!|
|It's just like Vegas!!!|
Enjoy my finds:
|Purrrr-fect for your single lady friends.|
|Everything from soup.....to............free weights??|
|IS IT SENSORY OVERLOAD? or what??|
|Who wants big ass smores? |
4" Marshmallows........or what I call diabete-mallows.
|This glass topped desk intrigued me. I love this bunny meth lab motif!|
|"Singing heartful bird."|
Terrible name. It may or may not be from the far east.
|Love this colour!!|
|I have a thing or the patterned background of this Dexter-plastic.|
|This casual shopper is waiting patiently for an associate to get a clock from stock!|
|Everything from fertilizer, to cellphones to electrical tape.....|
WAIT ONE SECOND........it is sounding a little terrorism-y......
|Have you seen any of these Oscar nominated films?|
Soup of the Day??
Beneath the Crust (volume 2)????
Am I crazy....but do these all sound like snuff films?
I havent had Youth hair in YEARS!
The thing I love MOST about Ed's is all the headshots and photos. Ed Mirvish was a real ambassador for Canadian theatre, and a lot of legends have posters and photos here....
|Does anyone still wear a hat?|
I wish! I could rock this one!!!
|Yes. I did mimic this pose in the middle of the store...|
...whilst sing yelling 'baaaaaaaargaaaaaains'.....

|I believe proper oral care was important to Douglas Fairbanks Jr!|
|I always LOVED this poster for Crazy for You!!!!|
|NOT SO CRAZY for this terrible airbrushing!!!!|
|This clock is huge and amazing!!!|
|That's right lady-readers.........birth control BY LIGHT BULB!!|
There is a joke here about keeping the lights on when naked......
.....if you can craft the joke yourself, i'd appreciate it!
|The place is a serious labyrinth!!!!!|
|Back in men's furnishings.......the bow tie bin!!!|
|NO MAN wants the word "mini" emblazoned across your undies.|
Am I right gents????
|.....on the other hand......"VICTORY" seems a bit over confident!|
$1.99 for a sweater????????
|Love the hand painted signs. I REALLY DO!!!!!|
|Um.....ok......it's a good deal..........but.......I feel like I can do better.....|
|YES!!!! I WILL TAKE 9 PAIRS!!!!|
Just imagine how they feel on your feet?
|I love how crowded and crazy the place is! I really do!!!|
|CREEPY! This area used to be the record area.....and now is barren and empty.|
|Also creepy. But great!|
|I was gonna buy this donut. But it was the last one on the shelf.|
(seriously - why are people such pigs???)
So there you go!
Lots of great stuff at Ed's.
