Pep Boys Manny Moe and Jack GypsyFaith Matchbook Magnet
These three guys probably play poker with their friends and tease each other. Their wives, I’m sure, make good potato salad, run the house with stern discipline, and are terribly sexy with long gel nails. I am crazy about the Pep Boys’ little white suits and their rounded legs.
Apparently this company was founded in 1921 by 4 guys, Manny, Moe, Moe #2, and Jack who invested $200.00 each; they named their place Pep. My favorite anecdote about this matchbook is that the name “Pep Boys” emerged from cops near their first store telling folks with burnt out headlights to “Go see the Pep boys.”
We include the image of the original matchbook before we edited it for commercial production. I keep a scan of each matchbook in our collection. We have about 4000 matchcovers. It’s interesting to see what the little matchbook looked like when it was discovered.
All prices include free shipping in the US.
Size: 46mm x 60mm
GypsyFaith Matchbook Magnets are exceptionally strong, double the strength of a regular fridge magnet. They are made of PVC, and have texture on the surface. They will not fade or scratch easily. They are nothing at all like cheaper, smooth surfaced magnets that you find everywhere. These are GypsyFaith’s own designs; no one sells our magnets but us. We developed our matchbook magnets over 4 years. Our pricing is dependent on the shipping charges. There is a lower cost for each magnet after the first one.
1st Magnet – $10, free shipping to USA (plus tax)
2nd Magnet – $8.60, free shipping to USA (charge is $18.60 plus local tax)
3rd Magnet – $7.65, free shipping to USA + a free GypsyFaith Magnet (charge is $26.25 plus local tax)
ALL additional magnets – $7.30 each, free shipping. Total charge depends on number ordered. (For example, if you order a total of 4 magnets, you’ll receive free shipping, a free GypsyFaith magnet, and the total would be $33.55, plus local tax. For each additional magnet you will pay the same price, $7.30, so you can determine the total cost yourself.)
