I love thrift shops and auctions of any kind. I always think of the Rolling Stones lyrics when I find a treasure:
“You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometime you find
You get what you need”
I was looking for something else when I spotted this little gem stuffed behind some old bookends – a Dahle 507 paper cutter made in Germany! $10.99!! I brought it home where she was welcomed by my vintage paper cutter (10″ x 10″) bought for $17 at an auction in Scotia, Nebraska, and my Big Bertha (31″ x 37″) purchased by my brother-in-law at an auction in Nebraska because he knew I would want it. The guillotine paper cutters slice through thick book board and the Dahle is great for accurate cuts of up to 7 sheets of paper. The Dahle will be handy in the book arts classes I teach. I love my little Dahle but puzzle over who on earth would donate it to a thrift shop?!
