Default BIG find at Sams club

Howdy gals :
I was at Sams club the other day and I found a scissor caddy that swirls and is made out of wood ... It is really NICE... and holds 18 scissors and not only that But it came with all kinds of deco scissors ( 18 in all) ( I know Not SU! BUT.... who couldnt use the scissors anyway) with all those fancy cut edges your sure to find one you like and if not give them away as a gift , I am going to use the scissors for my Sunday school class ...and keep the spinner caddy for all my SU! scissors and my hand held punches ( I think they will fit in the holes also ).. the best part is it cost 13.00 and some change ...
Just a FYI ....
See ya all on the cutting edge
Rubber hugs
Dawn

I got the same one about 3 months ago when they had at my local Sam's club. I love it and use it all the time. Like you said - it's not SU! but who can beat a bargain like that!!

Hi! I also just saw them at Costco; however, there I think they were more than $13; I think they were about $18 or $20---but still a great bargain! I asked for them for a Christmas present.

Wow! Thanks, Dawn.
The scissors can go to my classroom, and the caddy will be perfect for my soon-to-be "new" stampin/craftin room. Hope my Sam's has this.

My DD got these for Christmas last year from my SIL. She thinks it's great that she has more scissors than mommy! It's a great deal.

This is probably the set I got for my birthday from my MIL. She 's a Costco fanatic and a stamper. I love them and the caddy is so cool!

and you know what ?? the scissors seem to cut REALLY REALLY nice .. I had to try a pair before I wrapped them up ... I do seem to have a hard time with my SU deco scissors it doesnt give me a crisp edge like I would like But a couple cuts of the sams version they seem really nice
so needless to say I may keep a few of them on hand ... also I thought this was cool one of the scissors in the set comes with the postage stamp edge cut deco scissors too great for the faux postage techniques ... I just checked on sams club web site and they dont have them on there
BUT they did have a crop station on wheels for 49.88 which I have never seen at the sams near me so this must be online only item

I just saw the crop station at my Sam's. I almost bought it but knew I had already spent WAY too much money that day. I hope they have it next time I'm there!

Wow, that sounds neat!

Was this the one? I found it on the Sams site, but it is much more expensive. If this is the one...it must be an in-store deal. What do you think?

I see the empty caddy is listed just above it on the left so you can get it without the scissors.

Dawn, you are so sweet!

I'll check first with my secretary at school to see if she can pick me up one. She has offered to do a "Sam's run" for me before. Thanks for the offer though...very cool product!

DYLbrett:
YUP looks like you can get the catty all by itself for 16.22 on the site so boy i guess it is a deal with all scissors PLUS catty 13.58... I always wonder oh come such a difference in price when its the same store only difference is that one is online and on is a walk in ...HUMMM

They have them at costco too, but instead of 18 you get 24 for just a little more, i think maybe 20 dollars. Great dal though!

I have found that too with my deco scissors too. So I bought a Fiskars one and that one works much better.

I see on the Sam's Club site that price includes shipping so that is why it is a bit higher.

I have just bought a set with the rotating wooden basen that sounds very similar at Costco, but it has 24 scissors for $17.99! I saw the same thing at our local craft store for $53!!

The deals are out there, we just have to find them ...

I bought the one from Sams about 4 months ago, I bought it for the caddy, I was going to use it for my scissors. My fiskars where to long...so the kiddos ended up with the scissors and the caddy!!

It's probably more on the website because shipping is included.

well ladies I dont know who all got the message about "MY " Sams in Pontiac having this great deal But let me tell you They are low in supply as of today ... HUMMM maybe cause I keep remembering someone else I could give one too and keep buying more and more I think its down to about a dozen or so left on the shelfs .. HUMMM Maybe I need Just one more for my mail lady or better yet my UPS Lady ... glad to read all the posts about these scissors I have to wait until Christmas to actually get to use mine, I am so excited .. So excited that I got a few for next year gifts ... thanks for the tip also on the foil maybe I should try that with my SU! deco .... those dont cut very good for me
thanks a bunch

Let me know if anyone needs me to pick one up for them
