Inventory Schedule: February - Green. March – Black, Black on Black. April - 11" black tips in both white and black boxes. Matches in the white boxes are from a different manufacturer than the decorative boxes, and the matches are not the same size. We are slowly phasing out the decorative boxes from HomArt and will create our own designs. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE US POSTAL SERVICE IS STILL VERY DELAYED RIGHT NOW, EVEN WITH PRIORITY EXPRESS SHIPPING. WE SHIP OUT ASAP, BUT PLEASE ALLOW ADDITIONAL TIME FOR YOUR PACKAGES BE SCANNED AS "ACCEPTED". SOMETIMES THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN. ALSO MANY PACKAGES ARE SCANNED AS "DELIVERED" BUT SHOW UP DAYS LATER. THE NEXT MOST ECONOMICAL AND RELIABLE SHIPPING METHOD IS UPS GROUND. MONITOR YOUR TRACKING LINKS CLOSELY AND ALERT US OF ANY DELAYS.
5 Reasons Why Matchsticks Are Still Enjoyed Every Day

5 Reasons Why Matchsticks Are Still Enjoyed Every Day

When you think of modern times and luxuries, the word ‘matchstick’ generally doesn’t come to mind.  Matchsticks have been around for over 100 years, and believe it or not, lots of people still use them, even strongly preferring them to lighters. After all this time, there’s still just something satisfying about striking a match.

I’ve been in the matchstick business for 8 years, and below are some responses from my Matchstick Survey that I send to customers after they purchase, explaining why so many people people still use matchsticks, often preferring them to lighters. I have grouped them into 5 major categories: the smell, the ease of use, nostalgia, aesthetic, and a general dislike of lighters.
