Here in New Zealand we are actually having a great selection of Fiskars tools in the country.... thanks to Bruce.... Our Fiskars Rep.
Here is a look at what we have in Warehouse Stationary - Papanui, Christchurch (my local haunt, the staff is getting to know me by sight rather well. LOL)
In the Craft section.....Selection of Lever punches, hand held punches, squeeze punches, boarder punches, and down the bottom the Everywhere punches.
12" cutting mats, shape templates, Tool taxi, bypass trimmer (Hmmm tempting), see down the bottom the finger tip craft knife and the soft touch scissors. (both fabulous products) and the very bottom the Shape cutter.
Now in the Office supplies section: Trimmers.....spare blades, craft knives with their spare blades.
More paper trimmers and look at that a tool taxi coming with another trimmer.. (rotary trimmer that is) very handy with thicker cutting
And really for the office some great Gullotines and heavy duty rotary trimmers at the tip the heavy duty bypas trimmers. Great for any office. Hmmm maybe I should convince Church to invest in one.... LOL (I work there voluntary).
Thanks for dropping by and drooling with me.... ;) I will see if I can find more shops that hold our tools around town.... the hunt continues!
Just a shout out to all our New Zealand Readers.....

My daughter has one of those doll umbrella strollers.
Well we've had it since her 4th birthday (she's now 5 1/2yrs old) The cover has been cleaned several times and now its stuffed....
as you see the top of it won't hold up anymore as the material pieces have been torn off with exsessive use (ie: real children actually siting in it) And its torn in the front so the front rods are now showing.
My daughter has been using it like this for about a month now....
Dolly has been lying down on it. I thought it was about time I did something with it... New cover? NA!
I'll make a double whammy pram/stroller! I had several small pieces of material that matched and proceeded to make a quilted lying down and seated part.
I used flat sponge pieces also to pad it up on the seated and lying part. Then stiffened the back of the seated part with craft foam that has been sitting around for ages unused.
Here is the finished product....
and in use....
There. A "New" old toy! ***shhh! probably better quailty than what we started out with anyway****
Here are the fab Fiskars tools that helped me out with making it...
