Start the new year right with a sharp pair of scissors!
As a reminder, local professional Steve Hansut is still offering his sharpening services to our customers.
How it works: Steve picks up scissors at the shop on Fridays and returns them to the shop the following Friday.
Pricing will be as follows:
Scissors with up to a 4-inch blade: $5.00
Dressmaker & Medium Scissors: $7.00
Please note: Payment is cash-only, due at pickup.
Please note that some scissors can't be sharpened because of specific metal content and/or structural problems and all sharpening will be at Steve's discretion. If your scissors are unable to be sharpened, they will be returned at no cost to you.
Scissors must be dropped off at the shop by 5pm on Fridays.
