Today I updated the webside with all the Posters I have from Zippo :
I acquired some new Zippo Items :
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
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 …..)
Due to a spam attack my provider had to close my guestbook.
As soon as I have a proper alternative it will be installed.
From David, a good friend from Bradforf PA, I received a very nice package unexpectedly.
It contained some very nice Zippo’s and collectibles.
David, thank you very much.

Hierbij wens ik alle Zippoverzamelaars, vrienden en familie :

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.
