    Fiskars Snips at HomeDepot

    For several years I've been using these snips next to my sewing machine for clipping threads, corners, etc. They're so handy and easy to use. This past weekend I happened to see them at Home Depot in the gardening section. They're calling the scissors "pruning snips" and they are only $10.97. At Hobby Lobby and Joann's the regular price is $15.99 (although Joann does have them on sale right now for $9.59). The only difference I can see is that the "pruning snips" come with a plastic blade cover which the sewing snips do not have, which is a plus. Anyway, they appear to be the very same snips at a lower price at Home Depot.Name:  scissors.jpg

    Thanks. I have a pair which I use all the time. Might have to go to Home Depot and get a pair for one of my sisters who is a quilter also. Never can have too many quilt gadgets.

    Home Depot is where I got mine when I made a rag quilt. Way more affordable!

    Interesting. I bought mine at WalMart in the sewing department. I wonder if they have them at a lower price in gardening?
