Vended
Vend 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. [1913 Webster]

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. [1913 Webster]
