    I have a pair from both places. I don't think the ones from Home Depot are as sharp. Or maybe DH used them before he gave them to me.
    We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.

    I use a pair in my grooming kit . I use them at our flower show snipping brown tips off the foliage and buds that are interfering with the open flower. One year at Christmas meeting I got a pair for my gift The person who finally ended up with them was so grateful. She didn't have a pair. Last year's Christmas exchange was a yard art thing with a ball that changed color using solar energy. The year before I had put together a grooming kit and included snips to it. We have a limit of 15.00 to spend on gifts for the Dirty Santa gift exchange. Not yet sure of what I will get this year.

    My husband bought some last fall on clearance, I remember the price but, not 10.97. He offered them to me, I couldn't think what I would use them for, but I think I will send him to get some now. Thanks for letting us know.

    Thanks. That's good to know. I have two snips. I keep one by the sewing machine and one in my sewing machine case that I take to classes. Interesting that the pruning snips come with a blade cover. I bought covers for mine. I think they were about $1.50 each.

    I love mine to cut the edges of ragged flannel quilts. It is so much easier than with regular scissors.

    Why is everyone rushing to Home Depot for these when they cost less on sale at Jo-Ann's? For the blade cover? They do latch closed when not in use don't they?
