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.

Hello the hats have arrived, they are perfect, thank you.
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.

Dear Paul & Sara, Just to let you know that the liner I ordered arrived today - we're currently based in Oslo. Very many thanks for such a speedy service.
The liner is super snuggly but, even so, I think the temperatures here, heavy snow and minus 19 forecast for the weekend, have finally outmatched my trusty Barbour and I'll now have to embrace the michelin-man padded down look, at least until the Spring!
