Zippo Ladies Slim Matt Black Cigarette Lighter with border.
Product Code: Z1618ZBThis slim Zippo lighter is for ladies. It has a matt black finish, red border and Zippo logo. A real classic.
Read on to find out more about Zippo lighters and why we like them.
Zippo was created in 1932 by George Blaisdell, an oilman who watched a friend struggling to light a woman’s cigarette on a breezy day. In the small town of Bradford, Philadelphia, Blaisdell tinkered away, and built a small chimney around a wick to produce a windproof lighter. He gave it the famous lifetime guarantee and called the company Zippo.
Zippo's first location was a small machine shop on the second floor of the Richerson & Pryde garage on Bolyston Street in downtown Bradford, Philadelphia. The Zippo Windproof Lighter sign originally painted on the multi-paned window of the shop has become a symbol of Zippo's early days.
During World War II Blaisdell, a very smart promoter, shipped hundreds of Zippos to generals and war correspondents. Word of the lighter's durability and dependability spread, and the U.S. government ordered every lighter the Zippo Manufacturing Company could produce between 1943 and 1945.
When Blaisdell died in 1978 Zippo went to his two daughters, Harriett Wick and Sarah Dorn. They knew the business quite well having grown up stuffing cotton wicks into Zippos. Today their children work for the company too.
Save a few minor changes in the flint wheel and case finishes, the Zippo remains nearly exactly as George Blaisdell created it over 70 years ago. Today, the Zippo brand makes tape measures, knives, money clips, writing instruments and key holders, all engravable and personalizable to the owner. The American-made quality and Lifetime Guarantee makes the Zippo lighter a valuable collector's item around the world, with collectors' clubs in England, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Japan, and of course, the United States.

Sara & Paul,
This is just to confirm safe delivery of the handbag strap which will enable me to use a nice bag which I've neglected for ages as its own strap is far too long, not ajustable, too narrow and therefore uncomfortable. I Googled 'brown leather handbag strap' and was delighted to find I could buy exactly what I wanted - colour, width, length, adjustable, clip-on - from yourselves. Many thanks for the very prompt and efficient service too.

Paul hi, I would like to thank for your amazing response to my non-appearing" tiny " order.
The product you have sent without additional payment being made arrived out of the blue today.
I can only say in this day and age customer service is most often not delivered in the way you have.
Thank you, if the other packages ever turn up I will of course return them.
Finally, my sincerest wish is that your business prospers, and for my part I have already and will continue to sing your praises to any one that will listen.
