Thank you for taking the time and interest to check out my collection of Zippo® lighters, accessories and misc/other Zippo® items.

Check back often as new items are added to my collection!

At times he was given old display cases that he hauled home with him, on the train. We all know that some of our strongest memories are triggered by smells and sounds.

Growing up I fondly remember the distinct Zippo® click followed by the smell of Zippo® lighter fluid, as one was lit.

I was hooked, and I guess you could say I fell in love. It doesn’t hurt that the Zippo® brand lends itself so naturally to being collectible.

What was instituted as a quality control feature in the 50’s, wound up being something wonderful for collectors… Being able to date a lighter that has one of the thousands of designs or advertising on it, is what makes collecting these handheld gems so much fun.

The fact that Zippo® has made more than just lighters over the years just increases the options for collectors of the brand.

So, enjoy some of the items I have in my collection, check out my Wanted page to see items I want to buy, like Zip-A-Flint, advertising flint dispensers, and have a look at the facts, news and hot ebay items on the rest of the site.This web site and its content are not affiliated with the Zippo® Manufacturing Company.The Zippo® Manufacturing Company does not sponsor or endorse this web site.The Zippo® product name, logos, and other registered trademarks featured or referred to on this website are the sole property of the Zippo® Manufacturing Company, Bradford, PA., USA.All rights reserved, and are only used here to pay homage to their wonderful products through my collection.
