MATCHBOOK COLLECTING - Just for the Fun of It

The coronavirus pandemic has reduced travel as well as everyday things we do such as dining out. While we are aware of a few places that have decided to close permanently, hopefully, we will continue to be able to find places that have matchbooks or matchboxes with their names and that matchbooktraveler can still be a guide for collectors.

RememberMatchbooks not out for the taking? Be sure to ask if the place has matchbooks with its name.

On the left are states, provinces, and countries showing places we are aware of that have matchbooks or matchboxes (whether with matches, notepaper, toothpicks, or mints) with their names. Mobile users may have to press "more options."  If you know of additional places that have matchbooks with their names on them, whether from your travels or from the area where you live, please send us an e-mail (to jxw22000 at with their names and addresses. We would be glad to list them on this site.
