I am extremely disappointed with this product. The picture implied the screw would extend the scissors to its full amount in order to make very tiny buttonholes. This did not happen. It only extends a small amount so its use as a buttonhole scissors does not work at all. For you to sell a product that doesn't work and not refund the shipping charge is pathetic.Read More

Bed Sheet Thread Count Fact Sheet
The thread count of bed sheets refers to the number of threads per square inch of fabric. For example, if a square inch of fabric in a 300-thread count sheet with a standard weave were examined closely, 150 vertical threads and 150 horizontal threads would be counted, for a sum total of 300. The higher the thread count, the softer and smoother the sheets will be. Thread count is an important consideration to take when choosing a new set of sheets, but it should not be used as a sole indicator of quality. Equally important in choosing a bed sheet is the type and quality of the materials used as well as the fabric's weave.

International Shoe Sizing Buying Guide
If shoe sizes are listed using a system you aren't familiar with, it can be difficult to know how to buy shoes that will fit. Most of the shoes listed on Overstock.com are in U.S. sizes, which can make purchasing shoes online confusing if you are shopping internationally. This international shoe size conversion guide is here to give you an easy reference when you're shopping for shoes online. If it has been a while since you measured your feet, you'll want to do that first. Measure them late in the day, as they tend to be larger at this time. You should also wear the socks you plan to wear with your shoes. Have a friend trace your foot on a piece of paper, so you can stand up straight. Measure the tracing, finding the length of your foot in inches closest to the next 16th inch. Find the width of your foot, and then measure your other foot; use the measurements from the largest foot when referring to the shoe size conversion table. Remember that, even with the right shoe size, shoes from different manufacturers will fit differently. Be sure to read customer reviews to see if the shoes you are shopping for run true to size.
