Customer Question

I recently purchased a wall mounted cigar (?) lighter. It has a wooden plaque with a medal face of a fisherman with a pipe. There is what looks like a mole on his chin but is a starter for the lighter. It is electric. When the button is pressed, the glass eyes light up (via a small bulb inside) and the lighter at the end of the pipe lights up. I paid $25. for it. Did I do good?
Thank you very much! ***@******.***

Wayne, thanks for answering. I am 79 and not computer savy. I could try , perhaps later in the day and send it. How would I get back to you? Could I put you in My Favorites and retrieve it later as I have a doctor's appt. to go to.

Wayne- I accidently found the fisherman bronze cigar and cigarette lighter and am pleased to say I made a 100% profit on my purchase but we are not selling it. Thanks for answering. I may try again on some other items.Arlene Murray
