So, how did STRIKE A MATCH come about?
Well, I've been a candle and incense lover for years and tolerated using match lighters, match boxes, etc. Then, in 1994, while browsing pottery at an art festival, I saw these neat handmade oil warmers and incense holders, and I thought "what if" there was something similar to hold my matches and have a striking surface of some kind. Fast forward through several years of research and experiments, discovering the world of antique match holders and strikers, learning more about match production than I ever wanted to know, and *most* importantly -- finding the right containers I was looking for and matchstick manufacturers that sold sheets of match striking surface -- and here we are. That of course is a very condensed version of how this all went down, but bottom line, persistence is what got these match holders to the market.
We've officially been in business since the summer of 2011 and looking forward to connecting to more and more match lovers each year.
