Vendor vs. vender

KakaoTalk_20160202_165840702

Vendor or vender? I saw this sign on a recent visit to Tokyo. It caught my eye because the only spelling I am aware of is vendor. I assumed this to be an example of Engrish and captured it, but upon doing some online research, it turns out that the alternate spelling vender though rare, does exist. Which spelling do you usually use?
