I spend many, many hours a week on Etsy. Recently I happened upon the shop of Swan & Shears and fell in love. Because, as you may have noted in my last post, I need more supplies. Vintage supplies. And tools. So, luckily, one of the best items in their shop is their Petite European stapler!The staplers come in several beautiful colors- gold, green, blue, slate & pink.
I never imagined being excited over a stapler. Can I just say that I am very excited about this one. It’s hand-held, very attractive and uses the sweetest little tarnished brass staples. Each arrives in a lovely muslin bag with a pack of 1,000 – 6mm (just under 1/4″) staples. 10,000 staple refill packs are also available in the Swan & Shears Etsy shop and sister site McMaster & Storm.
Swan & Shears’ Petite European stapler has a never-jam mechanism. Have you ever heard of such a thing? I can think of a hundred things I want to staple. For starters, I just played around with some vintage patchwork Christmas ribbon and bakers twine to make itty-bitty bunting.
Swan & Shears is giving away Petite European Staplers to TWO JSIM readers!
TO ENTER: Leave a comment on this post telling me one fantastic thing you would use the stapler for if you won. That’s it! Entry to giveaway ends Monday, August 8 at noon (PST). Winners will be randomly chosen and notified soon after.
