 Definition: 
  1. \Vend\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Vended}; p. pr. & vb. n.
    {Vending}.] [F. vendre, L. vendere, from venum dare; venus
    sale + dare to give. See 2d {Venal}, {Date}, time.]
    To transfer to another person for a pecuniary equivalent; to
    make an object of trade; to dispose of by sale; to sell; as,
    to vend goods; to vend vegetables.
    
    Note: Vend differs from barter. We vend for money; we barter
          for commodities. Vend is used chiefly of wares,
          merchandise, or other small articles, not of lands and
          tenements.
    
    
  2. \Vend\, n.
    1. The act of vending or selling; a sale.
    
    2. The total sales of coal from a colliery. [Eng.]
