Vintage Finds: La Petite Matches



Oh, estate sales, how i love you. So many times all the little gems in a home get overlooked as people rush in for the bigger ticket items.

Picked up these little Swedish mid-century "La Petite" match boxes the other day. So perfect in their pastel and gold coloring. Each tiny box (just 1 1/2 inches by 1 inch) is filled with hot pink tipped wooden matches. I think even just one of these little boxes would make a wonderful gift to pair with a candle.

What a wonderful find! So precious. And you have a great idea of combining with a candle as a gift. Love it!

That is, if you can bear to part with them, right? ; )

I'd like to buy a couple of packs of the La Petite matches if you could afford to part a pack or two. Feel free to email me, timnewhart@aol.com
