Matchbooks used to be found in abundance at restaurants.

“A matchbook is a small paperboard folder enclosing a quantity of matches and having a coarse striking surface on the exterior.” Wikipedia

I found this matchbook when I visited my family.

Do you have a collection of interesting matchbooks?

  1. I’ve been sending the wedding matchbooks back on the couple’s’ anniversary. Nice reminder of their special day.

  2. I don’t have a collection of matchbooks but I do remember them in restaurants. Some were quite original. A great way to advertise (I guess).

  3. My church has a box of old matchbooks that we use to light candles…. and we have to explain to the kids what they are, and what they were used for, and why they pretty much don’t exist any more….

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
