Felix Young’s Trocadero Hollywood Matchbook Magnet (MM130)

One look was all it took and I had to save this old cover – this precious starlette with the old style film scrolling away from her drama mask face.  I was in love. SUCH a perfect version of Hollywood. I adore Los Angeles in all of its absurdity and dreaminess and beauty, and this cover says it all.  I lived in LA for 12 years and I loved it very much – the sun shines every day, and every day you can skate along the miles and miles of beach down the strand.

This famous club was on the Sunset Strip in LA.  It was the place to be seen, and you had to refer to it as, “The Troc”. You’d be chilling there with Fred Asaire, Bing Crosby, Hnery Fonda, and Lucille Ball.

The image you see is exactly what we used to produce the magnet.  (We include 1 free GypsyFaith sticker per order.)

All GypsyFaith magnets are double the strength of a normal refrigerator magnet; this magnet will hold several pieces of paper to a surface without sliding.  The surface is textured, so it does not scratch.  We developed it over a period of several years with our production partner in China.  It took us a long, long time to get to this PVC product.  Our intention, as we developed this product, was to make it as durable as our handmade magnet products were when we first began selling them more than 14 years ago.

Images used to make our magnets are scanned at 9600dpi resolution, reduced to 960dpi for production.

SIZE:  This magnet is exactly 1.835 x 2.362 inches OR 4.66 x 5.999 cm (It is about the size of the original matchcover.)

PACKAGING:  This magnet is packaged in a hard plastic container for retail sale, then we place it into the mailer.

It ships in a hand addressed, postage stamped padded mailer.

*We ship First Class US Mail for our customers domestic and international; for domestic orders the ship time is approximately 7 days.  We do not expedite shipping.  Cost for shipping, as well as tax, is calculated at checkout.
