    Hey pcdoctor,

    We are looking into scheduling another PowerBuy for April (which is the same
    time of year we did it last time). We may be able to bump it up to March,
    but I think Jan and Feb will still be a "recovery" period for us (as well as
    Paragon). Last year, we did the PowerBuy in April and Paragon still had some
    supply problems. I'm inclined to think that those supply issues were not a
    direct result of the previous holiday season, but I wouldn┬╣t want to cut it
    much closer. My reluctance is based on the headaches that I had last year
    with a lot of orders being delayed by Paragon because of their shortages.

    If you would like, I can designate you as the "town crier" when new info
    becomes available. [​IMG]

    Sincerely,
    Adam

    Also, feel free to post this reply.

    Glenise,

    I recently have started using avs forums, thanks to you
    but I noticed that you are writing to adam and pcdoctor aren't those people from avs. I think you made this post on the wrong forum..LOL

    This is a cool thread. [​IMG] I'll have one of these someday. Need to get more friends first to justify the expense. :b Right now, I just chuck a bag in the microwave and that does me for my viewing. [​IMG]

    Ed,

    On the AvsForum I'm known as pcdoctor.
    I posted the message from Adam on both forums to share the love. I didn't get a popper during the last power buy and just wanted to share with this forum also. You never know. They may be such a large response because of both forums. As a result, we may get a very good price with more buyers.

    Glenise,

    Oh I just thought you lost it for a second ...lol

    I appreciate that you are trying to get powerbuy.I want to get a popcorn machine soon.

    I have to get it cheap because I just bought one of these for my lobby http://www.vintagevending.com/produc...D=3228&CID=76.

    I didn't buy it there, I found one that needs to be restored . I collect and restore gumball/candy machines So I thought this machine would kind of tie the two rooms together. Kind of like a lobby

    Vintage Vending is about 5 miles from me, they sell some of the parts but I am thinking about having them restore it for me, I usually restore the smaller ones (like the one you have).

    Let me know whta happens with this power buy.

    Thanks
    ED

    Ed,

    I have Vintage Vending listed in my favorites.
    I just loved their modified Gold Medal poppers.
    Especially the popcorn stands.
    If money was no object, I'd get one of these.
    Of course I'd have to have a retro or traditional theater for these to really work.

    Vintage Vending does wonderful work. They constructed the ticket booth for my theater and did a great job. I've eyed their poppers for some time and, when I finish out the family/rec room, I'll probably pick one up.

    Greg,

    Hey neighbor (well kind of)

    Please tell me you didn't pay all that money for your ticket booth. Don't get me wrong, I do think the do an awesome job. I was in there the other day they told me they are looking for picture's of peoples rooms for their website.

    I am actually trying to find a vintage coin-op popper but to no avail if you find one in our area please let me know. Also if you find a popper similar to the ones at vintage vending I would be willing to help you restore it.

    Signed,
    Ed
