I love gum ball machines..When I was a little girl my Mama always gave me a penny to buy a gum ball..
I thought I would share some of my favorite ones in my collection today..
Now this one was for Fresh peanuts..Don't know how long they would have stayed Fresh..But one cent, one turn and you could get a hand full
A few of these sit on my candy cabinet..I love this cabinet, it was a hardware cabinet at one time and came from a store in Minden, NV..At one time it would of held nuts and bolts..Now the glass fronts are going about an inch deep they are for display and the drawers behind them would of had the nuts and bolts in them..So these drawers are not full of candies this is for display only..So many when I first shown this cabinet 2 years ago thought this whole thing was full of candy lol!! If it was I would have ate it all my now ha ha!!
I also have a thing for all penny vending machines..That's a match dispenser 2 books for one cent..
I love my blue one as it matches my kitchen tiles and my sink..
But out of all the ones I have this is my far my newest and favorite one..I call it my "Bill Clinton" one as the little saxophone player on top looks just like him ha ha!!
It's a M&M dispenser..It's cheap (Wal-Mart) it's plastic it's little...But to me this is the most PRICELESS one I have...Just to see my little pride and joy my Great grandson Landen James face when he comes to my house.And says Gigi Mmmmm's...Landen is now 19 months old and never and I say never shuts up he talks all the time..So glad to see at least he got one of my genes ha ha!!
Until next time from my mountain to yours
Hugs and smiles Gloria
