My son asked to be a vending machine for Halloween.  He specifically wanted to be the one from across the street.  This is not totally like the one across the street but I think I did an ok job.  My first post here so hope I did it right.  I was unable to find anything similar to what I was looking for online just snack vending machines and that was not what he wanted.  So I winged this.  I give credit to Pepsi since their machine inspired it Tongue  Thanks for looking!    Janelle

Thought I should add how it was made.  I took two kirkland boxes from costco cut a hole in the back of one and hot glued them both together.  (Was kind of surprised the hot glue kept as well as it did)  I then spray painted the box and glued on cut out labels from empty soda bottles to act as the buttons and pictures.  I painted on the black strip where the buttons went and the push dispenser area.  That was it.  I was contemplating putting on a plug to the back but did not make it that far.  Was too funny listening to people talk about how they thought I made it!  I actually had a dad ask if I got it online.  I was so proud to say that I had made it Cheesy
