Shell Stoke lighters

One of the taonga (cultural treasures) I have brought back from the New Country (New Zealand):

Lighter from Shell Stoke, Nelson, New Zealand

The legendary Shell Stoke cigarette lighters! Interactive scratchie fun for everyone. Yes, I did drive all the way to Stoke to get some – they make great gifts; and yes, that is the real address.
