Cute Gumball Machine

Remember that Gumball Machine I found at a thrift store for $3. I finally made it over. I had to find a globe for it. Thank goodness for EBay, I found one on there.

After cleaning it, I sprayed it white.

I have a tip for any Carousel Gumball owners. The 1” gumballs are too large. We bought the double bubble gumballs (so yummy) at the local candy store, but they are too big. I even scooped out just Halloween colors. The next batch I’ll order online.

Now, I just have to decide where it’s permanent home will be.

Really cute! I've always thought gum balls are a fun touch. I have a tall vase full of them on my desk. Just for decoration, though (:

Yours looks just like one my sister had when we were growing up. I've always wanted one. I'm going to be on the lookout now that you've inspired me. :o) Visiting from Coastal Charm's NTT. Happy Thrifting! :o) Larri at Seams Inspired

Love this! We found one in red, left it read but just cleaned it VERY very well. Hubby wants to find a stand for it...we're on the lookout...

This is so neat! What a cool thing to have in your home. My best friend growing up had one, and I was always so jealous. It looks great!
