Many people ask “How is it you are at Farmer’s Markets? You are not a farmer?”
The sharpening of tools used in the production and preparation of agricultural products is undeniably agricultural. We provide a much needed service to both the farmers and shoppers.
Sharpeners at Farmers’ Markets are a tradition all across America.
Check it out on Google. 77,000 hits.
We have some openings on weekends to do Sharpening Events at Retailers and Farmer’s Markets. It’s a great way to attract customers to your business. We have done sharpening at Garden Centers, Gourmet Cookware Stores Green Grocers. While I sharpen customer’s stuff, they shop at your business. Businesses we have sharpened at report an increase in sales.
We have a smaller compact sharpening setup to use in retail shops.
There is no charge to the sponsoring retailer for this service.
Noon to 3:00 pm.
54 Cove St Portland, (Bayside behind U Haul)
Wicked Sharp will be Sharpening Scissors at A Gathering of Stitches on Sunday January 19th from 12 to to 3PM. We will be sharpening scissors, shears and pinking shears on site. We hope make this a monthly event.
If you sew or you are a textile artist you need to check Gathering of Stitches out. It’s a remarkable place.
I can also do Cutlery or small garden tools. You will have to leave them with me for sharpening in my shop. I will make arrangements for delivery.
