So many years of things being sold from those classic cigarette machines you used to see everywhere.

In the spirit of upcycle and repurpose comes a group of awesome ideas to reinvent the way these googie art designed vending machines are used again.

Long gone are the vending machines full of tar sticks labeled with each brand at the pull knob, and in the place of cigarettes are tiny works of art, bibles, books, even one that is used to swap your used things for other peoples used things.

I remember the huge box sitting in the waiting areas of your favorite family diner.

Pulling at the different brands and pretending to smoke while you waited for a table.

Sneaking your first pack of smokes at the gas station machine with the excuse your mom sent you up to buy them for her.

Now we have found ways to bring back these beauties with less impact on the worlds health.
