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 womanís 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.

Thank you for your e-mail and telephone message. I'm pleased to hear that my order has been despatched. I have rented an allotment which is full of long grass to clear. I'm so pleased to have found the right tool for the job via your website and also to have supported a small family business.
Just to say that the handbag turnclasp is perfect and has made my daughter a happy young lady! Thank you.
Your prompt shipment and status for my order is very much appreciated!
Iím attempting to replicate the pink umbrella used in the Harry Potter movies and the ferrules you offer are the closest Iíve found to the correct look and the size I need (to fit a Ĺ inch oak shaft).

Paul, Thank you for your very prompt delivery I have opted into your emails and recorded details of your site as I use the trekking poles to walk with my prosthetic and confess I seem to get through ferrules rather rapidly. It is even nicer to hear yours is a family run business, as I much prefer dealing with smaller especially family run businesses in the world of global enterprises. Many thanks Charlie.

Patricia R., Leeds
Thank you for your efforts to send me the replacement for the order below. The jacket arrived mid morning on Saturday, in time for my wife's ride. She loves the jacket and I was very impressed that you had tried to wrap it for me. Many on line companies would not have offered this sort of service and it is appreciated.
