the best matchsticks

Directly from Jen Pearson's etsy shop:

"Designed by Jen Pearson, the Reclaimed Apothecary Matchstick Bottles 
have been recycled and re-purposed as functional match "boxes". 
Pearson etched the bottom of each jar to create a strike-able surface. 
This is sustainable product design at its best. 
Is this art or functional design? Both?"

I say BOTH!
I do have this little bottle of matches on my mantle.
I love shaking the match out and striking the glass bottom.
Buy yourself or your best friend one here.

Is there somewhere we can get this jar. Is it for sale at an retail outlet or an online store?
