    Anyone aware of anywhere in the US where i can get a tinderbox? i'd like to get a brass one, oval with a striker and the magnifying glass in the lid.
    I have tried to google it and the only ones i can find are made in england. no offense to anyone, just want one made in america.

    p.s. i missed one at a garage sale about 2 yrs ago and have been kicking myself ever since. thanks

    I would Start at Etsy.com Everything is handmade/vintage. There are sellers outside of the US but most are in the US and you will know who it is coming from. Yea there are a lot of Hipsters on etsy but there is some great stuff as well.

    Or I could be snarky in my reply.... Let me Google that for you
