My wife and I went to the flea market yesterday morning. It was cloudy and every now and then you could feel a little mist in the air. There were only about three quarters the vendors that are there on Sundays and hardly any customers. A very good time to browse around.
It turned out to be a good day for us. Both my wife and I purchased some things that we wanted. My wife got a lot of things that she wants to use in her crafting work, plus a nice small solid wood table along with some other things.
I am the one that found the best bargain, a Fiskars 12” Deluxe Rotary paper trimmer. Here is a picture of my purchase, sorry for the blurriness, I must have moved when taking the picture:
It is as good as new and does a fantastic job. It clamps the paper in place while you cut it. I would imagine that it would cut other material, also, although my wife tells me it would be best to stick to paper.
Here is a link to the paper cutter I purchased at the flea market yesterday for only $2.00. And it is as good as new:
Now, I would say that is quite a bargain, $2.00 for an item that retails at $82.45. I saved $80.45 with that purchase. The only way to save more is not to have bought anything, (grin).
Here is the replacement bar:
As you can see, it costs $14.58 but can be rotated 8 times for a new cutting surface. And the 45 mm rotary cutting blades can be purchased at any store that sells crafts or hardware.
Now I can pack away the old cheap one I was using and save it as a spare. My wife and I cut a lot of paper since we have been making cards to send to my Aunt every day. This will do a better job and easier, too.
Now that I am on a roll, will go back to the flea market again this morning. At least all the walking is good exercise, right?
