Can we talk about how I am loathe to get my scissors sharpened? I just hate taking them to Joann’s for sharpening and being without them for a week or more at a time. In fact, I have a few pairs of scissors. Why? Because instead of giving up scissors for sharpening, I would just go and buy another sharp pair on a 50 percent off day at Joanns. I do plan on buying some nice Kai scissors soon though
That being said, I was thrilled when a colleague told me that there was while you wait scissors sharpening at the Baltimore Farmer’s Market. Well, she told me they sharpened knives and I thought ‘SCISSORS!’.
I’ve been meaning to go for months now but couldn’t seem to put my hands on the two that needed sharpening until this morning…
The Farmer’s Market is pretty awesome if I do say so myself. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, live performers, prepared foods and general Baltimore goodness. This morning I ran into several people I know too, a frenemy, kids in my fellowship, colleagues and a blog reader (I should start wearing make up out the house for these things. Especially if I’m going to see frenemies).
The owner told me this is his first year at the market and he’s loving it! He said he’s sharpened thousands of Fiskars and that my Ginghers are good spring loaded scissors. The Ginghers cost a little more to sharpen since they don’t separate like the Fiskars.
He told me to come back in 30 minutes. So, I walked around the market getting some food for the week (and coffee and fresh made donuts for breakfast).
I am so making a peach cobbler today. And, fried green tomatoes with grilled corn. Mmmm.
My scissors were done in 30 mins for $12 total. And, they are cutting like buttah. Not bad! Thank you Pro Edge Sharpening!
Next time I’ll take my chef’s knife, craft nips and my duckbill embroidery scissors
