    Match books

    Does anyone collect matchbooks? I don't--I have a total of two, but they are so cool--one is from my favorite restaurant when I was a kid, and I actually bought it to give to my dad for Christmas, but I am having trouble parting with it. The other I bought for him, too, as it is also from the 40's in Savannah when he was young and used to go out on the town.

    But then I got to thinking, it would be fun to have one from the BlackHawk in Chicago from the 70's, where I used to go.

    This is where my thinking leads me, not that I will actually do it. . .

    Check these out on ebay. Not sure if this is the same place you are referring to or not, but it is worth a look. Have fun!
