    Thanks for the tip. I have several good scissors. In fact on my notions wall I have old and new ones. My son came to visit and thought I had too many pairs. (not all are good ones, I have old ones of my mother in laws) So, if you need a pair at my house, you may just get some that are over 20 years old unless you are cutting fabric.

    My Gingher's are off limits to everyone as well. Have 3 pair now and have considered scheduling them on my Homeowners Insurance along with jewelry.

    Just had a light bulb moment for those in family groups. Put a small bell on the scissors and you will hear them walking away.

    Or buy a small metal tool box with a place to put a lock. Keeps predators out for sure.
