I owned a pair of Elan scissors for years and loved them! Last year, they simply disappeared. Thinking they’d reappear any day, I bought another brand when I didn’t see them in stores. Then when I wasn’t as happy with my new pair, I decided to search online. I was so happy to find them still available and even happier to learn about Nancy’s Notions and loved that they have a connection to my best friends, Jenny & Misty Doan (they just don’t know it yet)! These are the best scissors! They’re much lighter weight than my first pair which I’d probably had about 15 years. Thank you so much!!
