How to get an Honest Ed's sign without waiting in line

Honest Ed's held its final sign sale last weekend, giving nostalgic Torontonians one last chance to snag a hand-painted piece of local history. Or so we thought.

If you didn't make it out last weekend, there are still plenty of signs available in store. Today I ventured to Bathurst and Bloor, ran up to the second floor, and grabbed my very own pop art inspired, red, blue and yellow sign. I was in and out in about 10 minutes.

There are plenty of signs still available in a range of sizes, and many seem to be in the $12 to $18 range (plus tax, of course).

The sign sale should continue into this weekend, and in all likelihood, it'll remain there until everything's sold out. But you may want to act quickly if you're hoping to pick up something good. Although this time, instead of standing around for hours, you can just run in and grab the perfect new addition to your gallery wall.
