I am cheap, ok well not really really cheap, but very very thrifty....just one of my many good traits!! Anyhow, just to show off a little, I've been wanting a pair of pinking shears forever, but I didn't want to pay $16-28 for a brand new pair. It's not like I was dying for a pair, so I took my time deciding weather they would be worth it. Lucky for me, I happened to be in a thrift store looking for something else completely, when I came across these!! I didn't even test them out, for a buck fifty, I didn't care how well they worked! I got 'em home and I am still thrilled (it's been a couple weeks) with them, they are as sharp as brand new and cut like a hot knife through butter, they look like they were never used!
|Another curious thing, they were made in Canada! Not much is made here nowadays.|
|Can you guess what could be inside?|
Well I did! Check it out, I got it for $20 and it has an extra roll of inked ribbon and it still works perfectly too. Not sure where and when I will display it in my house, since it's always full of kids who want to touch everything, but I am sure I will one day have the perfect place to show it off.
