Dear loving readers and visitors,
The name of the shop, in the photo above, literally means "heaven of match". Well described and really eye catching with the red paint. The meaning of the name of the shop is also well match with its nature of business. Perfect match.
Perhaps you may take a guess as to why I write to share with you about this unique shop.
What so special about this shop? What's the value you can learn from it?
The colorful match boxes, printed with all sorts of photos and pictures of movies, actresses and actors are well displayed at the glass cabinet at the shop. Very beautiful and adorable to their fans.
My friend, who has been collecting match boxes since his teenage years was instantly drawn to this shop when we walked along this old street in Hangzhou. He immediately selected some of his choices and bought them without any hesitation.
Below please some of scenery of this street; which has maintained its old traditional village image; where we found this unique match shop.

The shops still maintain its ancient style to offer its visitors of old sensation.

Contrary to our beliefs that the glory of this match has gone, this shop had successfully attracted many visitors of all ages. Amazing to find such a shop with all sorts of sizes of match boxes, colors, and printed with attractive photos of favorite movies stars, fairly tales and heroes. Unique, creative and innovative ways of revive the old goodies items. This will not only create employment in the labor market, but also create additional hobbies for its collectors.
I find it is very interesting and still applicable in our lives. It has taught me an invaluable lesson which made me share with you. This profound principle suggests that everyone will not obsolete so long as he knows how to capture the opportunity and he shall then been able to transform himself and create a niche market for himself, the same way like this match box. With some cosmetic change, it still can regain its former glory and stay in style.
I dare to say that most people thought that this match box will no longer useful and sale-able in today world. Lighter has replaced this obsolete item. However, if you had visited the shop above, your thought most likely would change, as I did. I found it very inspiring and interesting to share with you such an invaluable lesson.
If you are caught in the similar situation; like the match above, do not give up but seek for an opportunity to turn around your situation.
Just enlarge the relevant photo, see it yourself and you will find it so adorable and attractive than before. No wonder many people buy them for their personal collection, gift or even decorative items.
So, when you are down. Just visit this post and look at the above photos to refresh yourself with some new hopes. Trust that it will refresh and inspire you with some new hopes. Who knows you will shine again, the same way like this match box.
It is very normal and natural for life to go through ups and downs, but what is more important is to take the corrective measure to bound back when you were downs so as to keep you to the positive state of mindset. It is well acknowledge fact that the positive mindset will not stay automatic. We need to take control.
Look forward to seeing you again,
Have a blessed day everyday,
