What do you expect to get from a vending machine? Usually a drink perhaps, or maybe some snacks. But how about jewellery? For some, walking into a jewellery shop can be a little daunting with an army of eager salespeople watching you over your shoulder. Fortunately, for those of us who prefer to shop in peace, Chow Tai Fook has provided an unconventional solution.
Sailor Moon Star Power Stick pendant
From now until July 31, the fourth floor of Langham Place in Mong Kok is home to a special vending machine from which anime and jewellery fans are able to buy Sailor Moon-themed necklaces, pendants, and earrings (with prices starting from $1,800) that depict a range of special items from the series, such as Sailor Moon’s Cutie Moon Rod and other iconic items that are held by the four other characters – Sailor Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Jupiter – for their signature transformation moves. The exciting new vending machine launched by jewellery company Chow Tai Fook will be in operation from 11am to 8.30pm every day.
Sterling silver Luna charm and accessory box gift set
In addition to being a bit quirky, the vending machine will also throw in a sterling silver Luna charm and a Sailor Moon-themed accessory box for free with every purchase from the Sailor Moon collection while stocks last. That’s a heck of a deal for fans of the Japanese animation. Hoi Man Yau
