Tomorrow is my son James' 13th birthday. I restored this old Oak Acorn Gumball Machine in a Kansas Jayhawk theme for him. I believe the machine is from 1950s. I am a KU alum from 1986 and it is his favorite college team. I am really happy with how this turned out. I picked the machine up on eBay a little over a month ago and have had it finished for awhile now, had to keep it at my office so he wouldnt see it.
