Zine Vending Machine

Lucky Drop
Lucky Drop is Wellington's vending machine for zines, comics, stickers and self-published work.

Lucky Drop currently lives at Mashuko, an arts space at 70 Ghuznee Street, Wellington. The machine has just been repainted by local artist Pinky Fang, and is stocked with fresh zines, comics and stickers from Wellington zinemakers.

Big thanks to Kristine Garay at Mashuko for being a massive supporter of our machine. Kristine's been a huge help with just about everything to do with Lucky Drop - from painting, to housing, admin and promoting Lucky Drop. We're blessed to have your support.

Lucky Drop was donated to us by artist Bronwyn Holloway-Smith, who also helped us with getting the machine painted and set up. Special thanks also to Uli and Caitlin at the Massey University College of Creative Arts 3D Workshop. Lucky Drop had its first paint job by Miranda P. Z. Wolf and was first housed at the French Art Shop Wellington (now closed).
