Pair of Vintage Scissors

R100.00R120.00

There’s something to be said for a really good pair of scissors. Years ago I bought Justin a retro scissors/letter opener combo (which I later saw on Mad Men!) – I had no idea at the time how much he’d appreciate such a simple gift. The scissors were razor sharp, as are the vintage German pair that we have for sale today, and made a massive difference when you were cutting paper. Granted the little orange packet (with its R2.60 price tag scrawled in pen on the back – that’s how old these scissors are!) isn’t that fancy, but I can promise you that the scissors themselves are excellent quality, and will last you a lifetime if you look after them well and don’t abuse them (apparently you shouldn’t cut plastic cable ties with them – or so Justin told me rather firmly when he found out what I was doing with his pair!). I bought the Japanese Spitz pinking shears for the fabulous retro box, but I’m sure they’re also pretty decent quality (as are most Japanese-made goods), and if you’re into your sewing or crafts a pair of pinking shears are a must – saves on having to hem fabric, and creates a fabulous design!

Dimensions: Each pair of scissors measures approx. 17.5cm long
