After I spotted this vintage crystal table lighter I started scouring Etsy and Ebay for more vintage lighters. I love the idea of keeping one of these on the coffee table or nightstand to light candles.How incredible are these:
And my two favorites:
Most of these were between $20 - 30, but double check if they are working. A lot of the lighters I found were in need of new flint and/or fluid. I think a cigar shop would probably carry what you need.
As if all of that table lighter obsession wasn't enough, I then saw these posts on Abode Love on match holders/ash trays.Abode Love you should bookmark it ASAP.
Anyway - so I then added vintage ashtray and match holders to my ebay and etsy stalking. . .
I think he would look great in our living room or on the bar:
And just because it is super random - but may be kind of fun/quirky to hold matches or q-tips in a bathroom. I think the color combination is fabulous.
I also expanded my search to toothpick holders. Most wouldn't hold as many matches (which could be a good thing) but could also be great to cluster a few together or hold q-tips and of course toothpicks.
I have an old depression glass ash tray that was my grandparents and I use to hold wine corks, but I'm thinking I may need to add a match holder and/or lighter companion.
