Zippo Mood Indigo Cigarette Lighter.
Product Code: 20631This Zippo lighter is a must for the silver screen officionado. Somehow Zippo and Hollywood just seem to go together. This mood indigo cigarette lighter is adorned with hollywood images such as stars, projectors and film. A really great gift.
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.

I received the Foldaway Supaseat today and although I have not had the opportunity to test it thoroughly, I think it will serve the purpose for which it was envisaged perfectly: I am an amateur (very) birdwatcher and can only walk very short distances with a stick. The Supaseat can double for me as stick and seat while trying to get the best out of nature!
As an aside, I've noted that Saddler.co.uk also purvey some quite attractive walking sticks, so I could well be coming back to you in the not too distant future. Until then, my thanks

Dear Sara & Paul,
Just wanted to say that the scarf arrived this morning, just hours after ordering and I am so delighted. I am absolutely amazed by the service I have received. Personal and prompt. Having lost my previous scarf it seemed an impossible task to find it again. Describing the scarves you have over the phone has actually located the one I wanted and I now have my 'old scarf' back (in newer condition). Can't tell you how impressed I am and I look forward to receiving your newsletter in the future. Have no doubt I shall be ordering again and thank you SO much!
All the very best,
