We feature both a Stoner Candy machine and a Stoner Gum machine in our Retroplanet.com Museum. This brochure is for a Stoner Univendor 80, which is a vending machine designed to dispense larger items, like cupcakes, donuts or pouch tobacco. It has a striking resemblance to our restored Stoner Theater Candy Machine, made in the 1950’s with the same art deco design. This is a 4-selection machine that accepts nickels, dimes and quarters. And it addresses the changing needs of vendable items, able to hold anything from a donut to a variety of general merchandise.

I’ve been unable to find any photos of one of these vintage vendors. Perhaps you’ve seen one? Please blog-in and let us know.
