I've been reading Elycia's blog and got inspired by her pressed penny collection. I like to collect things that don't take up too much space and I love the nostalgia of penny pressing machines.
I visited a website called the Penny Collector and I was excited to see how many places in my area have these machines! I happened to be in the neighborhood of the Hasty Tasty the other day and stopped by to press some pennies.
This was spontaneous, so I didn't have my "real" camera with me. My iPhone photos will have to suffice this time!
The people in the restaurant probably thought I was crazy. I didn't eat there and I was SUPER STOKED about my pennies!
All you do is insert 2 quarters and your penny, turn the crank, and viola! Flattened souvenir penny! So fun! It's just silly and awesome! Seriously, try it!
Here's how they turned out!
Oh, and 2 points if you got my Big Bang reference! ;)
