Chuck started collecting Zippo lighters just 8 years ago after a coworker gave him a Zippo Rule. Frequent stops to the Zippo/Case Museum ensued and Chuck absorbed as much info he could from more seasoned collectors who were happy to share their knowledge.
In 2016, Chuck left the vintage guitar industry and started his own business, Riley’s 66. Riley’s 66 focuses on collector grade vintage and collectible Zippo lighters as well as original vintage inspired designs.
Chuck and his wife Stephanie call Bradford, PA their home away from home and enjoy the lifelong friendships made through the hobby of Zippo collecting.
