Collecting Ginghers

I collect scissors, especially the Gingher Designer Series. They release a pair do scissors each ear with a pretty handle. 


Then in the late fall, they release a second pair that is exclusive to JoAnn Stores only. They can be a challenge to get because in some areas they're snapped up quickly. If you do manage to get a pair online they won't ship them outside of the USA. 

So Tracey, Christin and I made Watertown our way home today (more about our weekend later this week), we me managed to pick up our scissors!  This year' pair is called Sharon. 


Aren't they pretty?

You've got quite the collection! I hadn't realized that one of the releases could be found at Joann's only.

Very pretty! And, I love how you display them in a frog!

You gave me the inspiration to find a frog of my very own. ;-)

Ooh, I love the new pair. I have given up looking for them at JoAnns.

Oh, how pretty--I love your collection, Dani! Didn't know JoAnn's carries these--I've never seen them at my local store.

A lovely scissor collection :)

Beautiful collection :) I decided very quickly that scissor collecting wasn't for me since the range available here in NZ wasn't that great, and many of the overseas producers don't ship to NZ. But that's ok, I can live vicariously through others like yourself :)

Love them all! My sister is called Sharon - what a pity that I can't buy them in Oz! When you buy the first of them for the year - which online store do you use?

Linda said...

The scissors look so pretty all together Dani.

A girl can never have too many pairs of scissors. Great collection.

Argh, I always get so envious when the JoAnn exclusives appear... I can get the normal yearly issue shipped to me by a store, but not these - not fair!
