I hit the thrift store jackpot a few weeks ago. I found a box of vintage scissors that were sorely under priced. I didn't complain. In fact, I quickly and quietly bought the entire box. They fit perfectly in the crock with the rest of my collection next to my trusty Bernina 830.
There's something so heavy, solid, and healthy about vintage sewing equipment. Much more dependable than today's light, plastic equipment don't ya think?
