More Than Moving Parts
Founded in 1990, this intriguing shop boasts hundreds of vintage coin-operated machines from the past 60 years, each of which offers a unique, often quirky glimpse into the past. The Oakland Press praises owner Marvin Yagoda's eclectic collection of arcade games, fortune tellers, and other novelties as "every little kid's dream," a mechanical wonderland that shifts and changes so often, it nearly seems alive itself. Whether you're looking for historical penny arcade classics or their modern equivalent, Marvin's is sure to make your eyes go wide -- and leave your spirits soaring.
