Occasionally I concentrate on certain themes and sell some Zippo lighters on eBay that no longer fit in with my collecting plans. These are usually in mint and unused condition with all the original packaging. Some of them are basic designs, others are Limited Editions and Custom designs that have been bought off collector’s and Zippo authorised retailers from around the world and quite often will not be found in any UK Zippo catalogues. The link below will take you to my eBay listings.
St. Clare Ferry Limited Edition.
A special Limited Edition of only 100 lighters that were commissioned by Ray (Tuggy) Taylor, a fellow member of both the Zippo Click and Zippo UK Collector’s Clubs and employee of WIGHTlink Ferries.
I doubt that Ray realised when he had this idea for a special one off run of Zippo lighters just how much work would be involved. It took six weeks from first contacting Zippo UK, then getting permission off WIGHTlink to use the image of their Flag Ship ‘St. Clare’ on the Zippo, and finally taking delivery of them.
Not only did Ray finance this project out of his own pocket, he is also donating part of the proceeds to charity. Initially, the idea was to sell these lighters to employees of WIGHTlink Ferries and members of the Zippo Click Collector’s Club only, however, he has a very limited number of these lighters left and has decided to put them on open sale. They will be sold on a first come first served basis. If you would like to add one to your collection contact me on this link St. Clare and I will forward details to you. Please put ‘St. Clare Zippo’ in the subject line.
Cost per Zippo: £25.00 + £3.00 p&p by 1st class Recorded Delivery within the UK.
International: £25.00 + £8.00 p&p. Only sent by the International Signed For service, no exceptions.
