10 Things You Can Buy In An Airport Vending Machine


Recently, one of my Twitter followers marveled that she was able to buy her favorite cosmetics in an airport vending machine.  I wrote about one of the first vending machines, operated byZoomSystems at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, back in 2006. The machine carried electronics for travelers who may have forgotten or lost items. Since then, these machines have become widespread and carry everything from underwear to aromatherapy.  Below are 10 items you can find at different airports.
