wow. just wow.

scissors are expensive. 

this is the epiphany i had today while standing in an aisle at hancock fabrics.  somewhere in the construction this past week, my favorite fabric scissors have gone MIA.  this makes me very sad.  so after looking for them extensively and mourning for them a little, the decision was made to suck it up and buy a new pair.

while i was purchasing a standard pair of extra-sharp scissors (not so expensive), i decided to pick up a specialty pair designed for quilting (since i'm getting into it).  i meandered around the corner to the specialty scissors and guffawed at the prices: $25.99, $36.99, $57.99.

i mean seriously--who pays $58 for a pair of scissors?!  that's just crazy.  

i settled for a $20 pair.  

and they rock.  they have already paid for themselves in the effort they saved me earlier this afternoon while working on a rag quilt.

but really, why are scissors so costly?  they're just scissors.

Yeah, I've seen some expensive ones. It's stupid. Plenty of things out there are far too expensive.
