CNE Postcards

Despite the noisy large crowds, stomach-churning rides and questionable food choices – the CNE still rules. Bid it, and summer, goodbye with one of our Kid Icarus brand screen printed postcards. Choose from four different nighttime CNE scenes: the classic ferris wheel, the dizzying Starship 3000, charming carousel swing, or one of the midway.

cne1 Kid Icarus brand screen printed postcards, four to choose from, $3 each. Available at our Kensington location.
