New “Vintage” Popcorn Machine At Vidler’s In East Aurora
Vidler's 5 & 10 is known for having just about everything you would need. It's almost like stepping back in time when you walk inside and it's magical at Christmas.
One of the coolest attractions for years was their vintage popcorn machine, that was first purchased in 1964. Now, Vidler's has a brand new "vintage" popcorn machine, that was unveiled on Friday to customers.
The old machine has seen its better days and according to WIVB, owner Don Vidler admits the machine was on its last legs.
“The big difference besides Neil cleaning up, polishing and repainting in original colors/fonts – is that all of the parts work!” owner Don Vidler said. “Our old one was on its last legs — we’ve kept it jury-rigged to run, but the buttons didn’t work and it was basically put in a dime and hope the popcorn came out and you caught it in the bag! “
The new popcorn machine is the same model and year as the original. The heating and warming light both work great in the new machine.
“Today was the first warm bag of popcorn I’ve had from our machine in 20 years!” Vidler added.
The best part? The new vintage machine still only requires 10 cents for a bag of popcorn!
