Hello Zippo-collector

As this site is completely devoted to Zippo’s I assume you are a Zippo-collector.
                                                      Welcome to Zippoman.nl.
To reach more collectors over the Globe this site is in English. On this site you will find my Zippo-collection to it’s fullest content. Which means you will , next to the Zippo’s, find all kinds of Zippo related items such as : Catalogs, Trash & Treasures etc. There also is an Agenda where I will put in as much as possible data on interesting meets. Do you know a date that is not in ? Please let me know.
In the Store you will find items I want to sell.

Enjoy the site, thank you for your visit and, where possible, thanks for your coöperation.

20th Anniversary of the Zippo Museum

On the 15th of July the Zippo Museum held its 20th Anniversary. So after the swapmeet of the GLLC on the 14th we all went to the Museum

On the way to the Zippo Museum...

On the way to the Zippo Museum…

Zippo had made a 100 special lighters for the occasion. There were two models.  They would only be available at the Museum. So everybody wanted to be at the Museum early.  The first people already arrived at 7.00 a.m. So when we arrived at 8.00 a.m. there already was a line ……

Totally there were three Zippo’s. Two are limited and the third one is regular available.

It was really crowded at the desk of the museum. Most of the people were GLLC members. So it was a good idea to have the GLLC meet a day before…

Next to the special sale they had games set up, prizes were given out, had an auction (silent)  and had a knife sharpener/zippo repair man on hand. Of course there was also enough food and drinks available.

     

     

You could also attend the Museum itself and if you were lucky could hear the story of the stolen Case Knife and how it landed in Jack Gorton’s garden …

It was also an oppertunity to meet old Zippo Acquaintances as Kathy Jones and Linda Meabon. Laura and I were , thanks to Kathy Jones, interviewed by the Bradford Era.

All in all it was an interesting and pleasant day. (And it also gave me new special Zippo’s …..)
