Yes, matches seem to be a long forgotten snow from yesterday and yet they are sold in every supermarket and at the kiosk in different sizes and boxes right next to the candles and the napkins.
If you are not a smoker yourself, you are all the more surprised, for which matches can be useful. And as with many seemingly useless things, the one who can think creatively comes up with an idea to create something beautiful.
Chaos is the most important requirement before the beginning of a creation
With love for detail it goes much better
