I have two vintage sticker vending machines that I would like to refurbish and stock with locally designed stickers. The machines give off nostalgic vibes and spotlight local artists. I imagine the machines traveling around to different locations to do pop ups featuring different artists. I am calling it Cereal City Sticker Co in ode to the city that smells like cheerios. Artists would be paid in advance for their designs and the machine would advertise their designs and a link to their social media. Customers would receive a randomized sticker by inserting five quarters into the slot.
