"strike a light !!!!"
« on: June 08, 2014, 09:50:41 AM »
I thought these might just "re-kindle " my enthusiasm into collecting again ! 

As you all probably know, i do like the personal items from our gallant guys and gals . so these came to "light" today while i was packing a few things away ,and i thought  " now theres something that shouldnt cost a lot to collect " 

Match books !!!

Does anyone else collect these ???

the first 4 ,show front and reverse of the book
