Matchbooks

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?

Anyone Still Collect Matchbooks?

Anyone still collect matchbooks? Do restaurants still have them in a large glass snifter for the taking? I know people who’ve collected colorful and interesting ones from fancy or fun establishments-but years ago.

Brides and Grooms names on matchbook covers were once a popular wedding favor.

I saw this matchbook at my son and DIL’s home, and wasn’t sure how long they’ve had it. I keep the same brand of kitchen matches in a drawer- like box.
