Matchmaker, matchmaker …

Monday, January 21st, 2013

I’ve found over the years that it’s hard to come by a matchbook, they used to be everywhere!
At restaurants, hotels, country clubs, gas stations, bars … they were a token for one to remember a business’s logo, an address, a phone number. Great effort went into their design and although they’re harder to find now, it makes the find even better when you come across one that’s unique. Here are a few I found over the holiday’s to add to my ever expanding collection!

Farincy Davis ~ 1893

A favorite blog of mine, Forgotten Bookmarks features daily finds from rare books.

Items one has hidden or absently forgotten, to be later found in collectibles and now shared.

I love collecting old books and too have often found little treasures … thought I would share this one.

“Farincy” …. what a name! It makes me wonder about its origin?

Top picture can be found on my pinterest board.

From trash to treasure ….
