Honest Ed’s Warehouse
This place rocks! Bastion of bargains, and the Holt Renfrew for Toronto’s working class poor (a statement for which I’m sure to get flack). I’m a convert. I may browse and window shop ad nauseam at that sicon of snobbery (Holts) but I buy at Honest Eds! Witness last Saturday’s deals par excellence:
Aquafresh Extreme Clean: THE toothpaste of choice among the discerning buyers and usually (on a good day) $2.99ea at the mother of all drugstores, Shopper’s Drug Mart. At Honest Ed’s though you can get this ….
Say it with me folks: I’m a believer! Hallelujah!
– Pringles for $0.89 ea
– perfectly fine t-shirts for $2.99 ea
The Crystal That Wasn’t
And while we’re on the topic of things fine; this picture of something that is anything but: the continuing work on the Royal Ontario Museum and poor Daniel Libeskind’s ‘crystal’. What was once supposed to be a house of crystalline glass is shaping up to be a hodgepodge of aluminum siding with token glass mementos. So utterly sad. An opportunity lost.
