Inside Honest Ed’s

Lynette has never been to Honest Ed’s. It is the original ‘Giant Tiger’ type store and where Ed Mirvish made his money originally. How can one describe it? Take the largest Giant Tiger store you have ever been in, multiply it by at least 5, house it in several connected, 75 year old, 3 story buildings that span a city block square, decorate the inside with theater posters from the 1950s and 1960s, and there you have it. Yes, and the facade of the building has 10,000 lights on it.

Lynette was blown away and loved it. We could have stayed there for half the day. Bargains, bargains, bargains. And stuff you would never find anywhere in Ottawa.

We bought a few small things and loved every minute. We will be back next trip.

This brought the time to almost noon, so back to Kensington…
