Vest Vending Machine Racks Up Sales


Good morning. I'm Noel King. If you've been anywhere near Silicon Valley or even seen the TV show, you know there's an unofficial uniform for guys who work in tech - a fleece vest.

An airport representative says the vending machine takes in, on average, $10,000 a month. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
