The Vending Emporium is the city's equivalent of a shopping mall. Travelers can find all manner of vending machines peddling an array of trinkets, at prices that vary from the affordable to the outrageous. But buyer beware! - Many of these machines don't work because the vendors are too lazy to stock them, and also items bought at the emporium come with no warranty and no guarantee.1)
If you are somehow able to find one of these magical vending machines, congratulations. You have successfully traveled back in time. They don't exist anymore in Season 2.
