MATCHSFI feature some high-end finds here from time to time that are out of reach for most of us but fun to dream about.  So I love when I find something I love that is relatively inexpensive but still cool.  Such in the case with today’s find, the Coleman Match Safe from Farm & Fleet.

I love matches and prefer them to lighters (despite what you may have read here).  I love the smell of a freshly lit match and the scent of burning wood.  I keep matches on hand to light candles, my citronella lamps and torches, wood stove and the occasional cigar.  The Coleman Match Safe is described: “Keeps matches safe and dry; Nickel plated brass construction; Cap includes watertight seal; Key ring attachment.”

This Match Safe is just one small items that is available from Blain’s Farm & Fleet, a wonderful Midwest retailer.  Farm & Fleet currently has a great selection of products that are sure to help you make the most of the summer.

Well, it looks like we WILL be back at Todd Farm today Sunday (June 24) for another great sale of vintage buttons and sewing collectibles from my mother’s vast collection, as well as some cool new vintage finds we picked up at various auctions and tag sales.

The beginning of summer heat wave has finally broken and the weather looks perfect for today.  If you are in the greater New England area, Rowley, MA is a nice place to visit and close to Newburyport and the beaches of Boston’s North Shore – so you can make a day of it.

Look for us set up behind the barn with our white tent if the wind allows. If it is crowded, keep looking around – we will be there somewhere.

For those of you who are too far away – I hope you have a great relaxing Sunday.  Cheers!
