Gumball Machine

UPDATE (January 2012):  Old Yeller is now a Jawbreaker machine :-)  We have placed it at the Water Gardens movie theater in Pleasant Grove.  They have been very generous to allow us to keep the machine at their theater.  Water Gardens theater is a great place to see a movie.  $3 movies.  $1, $2 and $3 candy/popcorn.  Great movie selection.  Family-oriented.  Good people.  Go see a movie, get a jawbreaker and tell the management you love the yellow jawbreaker machine :-)

This is Old Yeller.  Our faithful gumball machine.  We acquired it at a garage sale a few years ago.
In the past it has been placed at The Water Gardens movie theater in Pleasant Grove and at Monkey Island in Lehi.  Currently it is in our garage.  Even though it is still making some money (from our kids and the neighbor kids :-) we would love to see it placed in a business again.  Here are some pictures of the gumball machine and a record of how much we've made with it so far.
