Started in 1997, Vintage Vending, Inc. quickly built a reputation as the finest restorer of 1950’s memorabilia in the country. We bought, sold and restored all kinds of 1950’s icons, including soda and candy machines, pedal cars, soda coolers, gas pumps and more.
Due to a variety of circumstances, we made the difficult decision to leave the restoration business in 2005. We moved to our current location and changed our retail name to Retroplanet.com. We are, however, very proud of our roots and the restoration work we once did. This blog is an effort to share pictures of our work in addition to the thousands of pages of rare literature we have in the Vintage Vending archives. Our hope is that this blog will promote and encourage the discussion and preservation of America’s past. We’d also like to be there to offer helpful tips and advice.
Today Vintage Vending, Inc. is known as Retroplanet.com. There we offer thousands of easy-to-find, cool retro products. Just a few of the many products we carry are reproduction vintage metal signs, diner furniture, Kit Kat Clocks and other retro kitsch. At Retroplanet.com we offer customer service that is second to none.
