Tasty Toasty Luncheonette Opposite Malley’s New Haven Matchbook Magnet (MM124)

This was the hardest matchcover I have ever saved. I was much too in love with it to lose it, but I did have to hand draw every single piece of it. It conjures up all kinds of warm memories, the old leather round seats at the counter, the idea of a toasted sandwich, the fabulous old salmon color tiles – it’s such a Northeast image – even the globe lights hanging from the ceiling are familiar. One of the most beautiful covers in our collection. This is a treasure.  The thing is, it was actually really hard to make toast when this place opened; you had to hand turn bread over an open fire.  So toast was really a special treat, one that was copied from the British.

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.
