ARCHDALE, N.C. -- In this edition of Roy's Folks, meet an Archdale man who collects Zippo cigarette lighters.

The Zippo once dominated the cigarette lighter business before disposable lighters started being used for convenience.

One of Roy’s Folks started collecting Zippos because they were small and would not take up much room. But eventually his collection took over an entire room in his house.

Now he has over 4,000 of the little fire producing rectangular boxes.
