Almost everyone has the nostalgic childhood memory of getting some change to buy something from a vending machine. Maybe gumballs or a toy? It was exhilarating to me! Now there’s a local couple that’s bringing back that feeling of nostalgia by creating vending machines with a unique throwback.
The husband and wife team of Ryan and Brandy Koch, co-founders of Detroitland Vending, say they are putting a smile on faces in random places with some nostalgic vibes.
Detroitland Vending machines are all about creating a magical experience that adults may have remembered from their childhood. The machines have items like trading cards, an art pack, friendship bracelets, handmade earrings, and more. The machine also features mystery bags. There’s really no telling what’s in the bags, but you may find a few favorite throwback toys and collectibles.
There are currently 5 machines around Metro Detroit including one in Regeneration in Pleasant Ridge, Lucky’s Barbershop, New Kombucha, and Flamingo Vintage.
